How You Can Prepare at Home Before Your IVF Procedure

Third party Reproduction 0

If you have an upcoming IVF procedure at one of the top IVF clinics in Pune, you are probably excited and anxious. While it is normal to feel nervous, you should also try not to let your nerves get the better of you. Here are some ways you can relax and prepare at home for your IVF procedure.

Eat right

Eating healthy and balanced meals can go a long way in preparing your body for IVF. Avoid too much of raw vegetables in your diet, which tend to drain your body of energy and warmth. Instead, opt for cooked vegetables in the form of stews or soups. Bone broth is said to be a fantastic meal to prepare your body for this delicate process. Avoid sugar, dairy and any products that have too much refined carbohydrates, as these could create inflammation and phlegm, which tends to hamper a conducive uterine environment. You could even try fish oil and turmeric, which are natural blood thinners. Check with your doctor about specifics on what to include in your diet.

Feel good about yourself

Being in the right state of mind can truly help the success of your IVF treatment. Laugh a lot, watch a lot of comedies on television, read a happy book or play with your pet. Feeling good releases many good hormones which work by relaxing your mind and body, lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and maintaining healthy blood circulation.

Don’t overthink things

Yes, an IVF procedure is a delicate one that may or may not see success. But you will only make matters worse if you keep stressing about it constantly. Try not to overthink things and put your mind at ease. When you start to feel anxious, you will notice that your breathing starts to change and your heart starts to beat faster. Distress your mind and body by practising yoga, meditation or deep breathing techniques. Focus on the new life you are about to create and on the positive.

Avoid heavy lifting and too much exercise

Keep heavy lifting at a minimum as it causes a strain on your uterus as well as on the ligaments and muscles that surround it. To be able to secure an embryo in the womb during implantation as well as to support it through the extent of your pregnancy, your uterus and the surrounding muscles need to be properly aligned.

Also be sure to avoid any excessive exercise like running which may displace and jar the uterus and weaken the supportive muscles around it. Check with your IVF specialist about the magnitude of exercise you may perform during stimulation, retrieval or after the transfer.

Drink tons of water

Rehydrating yourself is very important to steer clear of uterine spasms. Be sure to drink lots of water as your body needs electrolytes at this point. Get your daily dose of electrolytes drink electrolyte-infused water, coconut water, add some sea salt and a squeeze of lime into your water or add some electrolyte powder to your drinking water. Avoid colas, caffeinated drinks or sports drinks, which may have high food dye and sugar contents.

Opt for alternative therapies

Alternative therapies like soothing massages and self-acupressure before and after a transfer have been known to increase the success rate of an IVF transfer, according to studies. Massages help you relax and acupressure has been known to boosts circulation to the embryo and uterus to deliver vital nutrients, fresh blood, and hormones.
