Home IVF Buddies
Even though there are no guarantees when it comes to IVF, here are some tips to help improve the chances of your cycle:
It is imperative to start a healthy diet regime at least 3 months before your cycle. This is necessary not only to ensure your body is in good condition for the journey ahead, but also to help improve egg and sperm quality.
This helps to ensure your body is in prime condition, and also to get your BMI to an appropriate number. The endorphins you release will also help with stress management. HOWEVER, it is imperative to ensure that you don’t go too aggressive with your exercise, especially when you have started the cycle.
5. Eliminate smoking & alcohol
Yep….very important. Sex is important to help reduce stress levels, and also to keep you and your partner bonded…both of which are very important to this process.

Thanks, Nicole! that was a very explicit directive and I hope it’ll help many. 🙂 I did limit alcohol to occasions only ever since my IUI started in late 2016… didn’t help much in my case though. I remember when my first IUI failed I was so bogged down I spend the whole night crying and sipping on a bottle of scotch. Sometimes you can’t just help! I don’t think that one night could have caused me 2 years of futile TTC with a failed IVF… I just wasn’t lucky enough I guess.
