Important decisions require a calm mind and a lot of preparation, emotionally, mentally, and physically. IVF cycles are no different. At Wellspring, our IVF specialists in Ahmedabad are patient and ensure our patients undergo their IVF cycle comfortably.
Here are some tips we urge our patients to follow to prepare for the cycle.
Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet:
As the best well-known IVF center in Ahmedabad, we always encourage our patients to mind what they eat. Switching to a new diet that is fertility-inducing and fresh is essential. Say yes to food low in fat and high in protein, calcium, potassium, and such vitamins. Leafy veggies, fruits, and fertility-boosting foods like nuts, beans, and whole grains are ideal. It is advisable to maintain a normal BMI since being underweight or overweight can cause complications.
Start taking a prenatal vitamin medication:
The healthier the eggs, the successful the IVF cycle. And to make sure the eggs are healthy, invest in fertility-enhancing vitamins. They help in improving overall fertility. One can find such supplements available in nearby pharmacies. Our doctors prescribe high-quality vitamins with minimum side effects with a regular diet. Start taking these pills at least 3 months before.
Begin using relaxation techniques:
IVF cycles are demanding, stressful, and physically demanding. It goes without saying to be calm and relaxed. Keeping stress at bay will help you before, during, and even after IVF. Some well-proven techniques are meditation, breathing exercises, and talking to loved ones. Even yoga and acupuncture are few techniques suggested for releasing stress and helping with anxiety.
Avoid smoking and alcohol intake:
It is a known fact that nicotine can reduce the fertility of the eggs and age them, resulting in an unsuccessful IVF cycle. The fetus may get damaged even if the IVF cycle goes successful. The same goes for alcohol; the consumption reduces the chances of a successful IVF to 50%. Doctors also suggest limiting caffeine to maximum 2 cups of coffee per day.
All in all, IVF is one of the crucial decisions of anyones’ life. It requires time, effort, willpower, money, and a lot of research. Hence, preparing yourself for an IVF cycle is you preparing to welcome your baby. To know more or to clear out any doubts, book a counseling session with us today!
