In-vitro fertilization, or IVF, is one of the most common treatments for
infertility and it can be highly successful in a wide range of cases.
If you are getting ready for an IVF cycle, you will play a vital role
in this treatment! There are many ways that you can improve your health
and prepare your body for a healthy transfer and pregnancy. This article
will explore three easy strategies that you might implement to boost the
chances of success with IVF when you undergo your next treatment cycle.
Eat a Balanced Diet
It is helpful to follow a pregnancy diet well before you conceive, especially
if you are undergoing IVF. Before and during pregnancy, you should eat
plenty of whole grains, lean protein, organic fruits and vegetables, and
healthy fats, which can be found in avocados and nuts. You’ll also
want to avoid alcohol and processed sugars along with caffeine.
Add Low-Impact Exercise to Your Routine
Strenuous exercise is not ideal prior to IVF, but you will want to get
moving with yoga, walking, swimming, or any other form of low-impact exercise.
Instead of putting more stress on your body, these types of exercise can
boost circulation, promote a healthy weight, and improve your overall health.
Consider Acupuncture Therapy
While it is important to work with a reproductive medicine specialist to
achieve your family planning goals, complementary therapies like acupuncture
can be helpful in optimizing results. Acupuncture has been shown to
improve the chances of conception while reducing the chance of miscarriage, so it can be a great alternative
therapy to add to your IVF cycle. It is also a great way to relieve stress
during the treatment cycle.
