Preparing for an IVF treatment
Waiting to begin your first round of IVF can be daunting. You may feel anxious and apprehensive about what’s to come. There is no better time than before you begin your IVF cycle to introduce positive changes to your lifestyle.
This will ensure your body is at the best place it can be before you begin treatment. Even small changes can potentially increase your chance of success.
Not only will these changes make you feel healthier, they may also increase the chance of a pregnancy. Good Luck!
Now is the time to improve your eating habits.
Adding more fruit and vegetables, reducing the amount of sugar and carbohydrates you eat, and drinking more water are great steps to improve your health before treatment.
Regular exercise, especially combined with an improvement in diet, can be extremely beneficial to your chances of success.
If you are overweight, even a small amount of weight loss can improve how your body responds to treatment.
It is important for your mental and overall wellbeing if you can find something that will help you relax, both before and during your treatment. Many women find that things such as meditation and acupuncture are beneficial.
Others like to read a book or go for a walk. Have a plan to set aside time to do something that works for you during your treatment.
