There are a number of things you can do towards achieving successful IVF first time. Many couples worldwide use IVF to help them achieve their dream of having a baby. However, most couples have more than one attempt before conception occurs. Research has shown that the more prepared you are beforehand, the better the outcome is likely to be and as IVF is a very costly procedure in both financial and emotional terms it’s best to do whatever you can to boost your chances of success.
One of the most effective things you can do when trying to conceive is to change your diet for the better. In general, you should eat what you probably already know to be a healthy diet, with emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables, beans, seeds, nuts, full fat dairy products and lean meats in moderation. Where possible, you should eat organic produce. Drinking plenty of filtered water is also important-you should aim to drink around 2 liters each day. You should avoid sugar, refined carbohydrates, foods with additives and preservatives, caffeine and known toxins such as tobacco and alcohol.
In terms of making dietary changes, it really is a case of, the sooner the better. Ideally, you would begin preparing for your IVF cycle at least 3 months in advance, although it is never too late to change things for the better.
There are specific foods which may help with the implantation part of your IVF cycle and eating these may help with achieving successful IVF first time. These include walnuts, pineapples and yams.
Stress is a real inhibitor to successful IVF. Although the links are not fully understood, research has indicated that women with higher than normal stress levels are less likely to become pregnant. One theory is that stress causes higher levels of the stress hormone, Cortisol which can disrupt hormonal levels. This in turn can affect ovulation. In men, stress may cause lower quality sperm to be produced. Therefore, when looking at achieving successful IVF first time, you must not dismiss the importance of keeping your stress levels low by whatever means suits you, be it by taking a walk, reading, gentle exercise or even cutting down on your working hours if necessary.
