Thanks to advances in medical science and technology, it is absolutely true that IVF procedures have become more common and easy to perform what it was around a decade ago. But that does not discount the necessity of undergoing healthy practices before and after IVF. A couple embarking for an IVF procedure should plan well in advance to have a pleasant journey throughout the schedule.
So, what are the do’s and don’ts that need to be ritually followed during the course of IVF treatment? Having offered IVF and ICSI centre treatments in Aurangabad and presented numerous couples with little bundle of joy in their hands, it is indeed our duty to make our patients informative. Let’s begin right now:
Before IVF :
Well, you have taken a major decision to go for IVF and in the first place, accept our best wishes. Due to misleading source of information, most of the patients are highly misinformed about the precautions that need to be adopted before undergoing IVF. In reality, your fertility specialist would take good care of your health and treatment and all you need to do is just follow them. Additionally you can always engage in the following practices to prepare yourself well for the procedure, advices a specialist doctor associated with Endoworld hospital, a renowned IVF and Endoscopy center Aurangabad.
Stay calm :
We understand that you would be experiencing anxious filled moments, but that is not going to help anyway. Instead practice meditation to cool your nerves and prepare yourself for the D-day.
Have a good diet that helps to keep in good health. It is always advisable to avoid junk foods, alcohol, and smoking. Instead consult your gynecologist about the diet schedule and do not forget to ask about folic acid supplements.
Your fertility doctor would have prescribed certain medications to prepare your body for the procedure. Never and ever miss those medications and if you are not comfortable with any of those medicines, consult your doctor for an alternative.
Keep fit :
You can definitely indulge in light exercise and walk around the park to keep your body in lighter tone.
The golden rule always stresses only one aspect – strictly follow the instruction of your fertility specialist. Remember, your doctor would not have prescribed or suggested special instructions without any valid reason. Hence, come what may, without discussing with your doctor, do not deviate from the prescribed practices. After transferring the embryo, it is quite natural for you to be anxious for the next two weeks. But remember, although it all depends now on the nature, you can definitely contribute towards achieving positive result:
Refrain from strenuous activities:
Strictly stay away from heavy lifting, tiresome physical activities that include running, jogging or swimming for two days. At the same time, it is not necessary to remain in the bed always. You can always lead a normal life but devoid of physical stress and strain.
Don’t indulge in drugs, alcohol, or smoking. They are very much unlikely to improve neither your anxiety status nor the success chances of IVF.
Stay away from sex :
Do not have sexual intercourse until the two week waiting period is over.
Stay with high spirits :
Do not break your routine schedule. Be what you are and as far as possible remain in good mood, read humor stories or watch comedy movies. In short always be with the best frame of thoughts.
Don’t believe rumors :
It is quite possible that you encounter co-workers and friends pouring suggestions and advices. Believe us, more than half of them would be mere myths – having mild cough or walking around may cause the embryo to fall out, spotting is the end of the IVF process and so on. Just ignore these unavoidable advices, no matter how well-intended they are, and wait for the results to come out.
