Pregnant after IVF - safe to travel?

I have just had a positive pregnancy test 16 days after having IVF. I plan to fly to England for a few days next week. I feel perfectly well. Is it safe for me to fly?

The fact that you have conceived through IVF does not alter the advice that would generally be given to pregnant women regarding fitness to fly. It is safe for pregnant women to fly during all stages of pregnancy apart from the final weeks of the third trimester. There is no need for you to alter your travel plans.
