Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. It is common for women feeling fatigued after IVF. This symptom is caused by a surge in the hormone progesterone. The fatigue an IVF patient feels after transfer may be due to the progesterone supplements, or it may be due to progesterone that is released by the body because a pregnancy has started. If you have any other early pregnancy symptoms like nausea, soreness of breasts, frequent urination or increased appetite then please get it evaluated from your gynecologist as it may be due to early pregnancy.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
