Question
Hi, I had an IVF transfer yesterday (2-day transfer of one egg) and ate a dish that had peas and caraway seeds today. I read that caraway seeds can cause a miscarriage. Should I be worried? I'm feeling some cramps in my stomach right now. Thanks.

Answer
Hello Kathy from Canada,

No, these food substances should not influence your chances of a miscarriage.

Good Luck,
