IVF is a physically and mentally stressful time. Here are few tips on how to combat this time and utilise it for the best self care and results in IVF.

Supplements to take during IVF

There are a few natural supplements you can take to support IVF pregnancy.

Vitamin D

Amount of sleep during IVF

Sleep and fertility are closely connected. Getting the right amount of sleep can help support your IVF cycle by improving melatonin production and also reducing stress levels.

A 2013 study found that the success rate for those who sleep seven to eight hours each day was significantly higher than those who slept for shorter or longer durations.

Can you drink alcohol during IVF?

It’s possible to drink alcohol in moderation. But beware that excess quantity can harm the possible pregnancy and also can interfere with fertility drugs. Definitely, once you’ve completed the embryo transfer, you should abstain from drinking any alcohol at all.

Exhaustion, fatigue and exercise

Get seven to eight hours of sleep each night.

Try to take 30- to 45-minute nap during the day.

Practice yoga for healthy body and mind.

Deep breathing exercises or pranayama.

Continue your light exercise regimen.

Stay hydrated.

Avoid smoking, spicy foods, and caffeine.


Role of male partner

Husband might not directly bear the brunt of IVF success or failure but he may play a very important role.

Take care of your health as the quality of sperms depends on your lifestyle and habits.

Be supportive. The most important thing your partner can do is be there for you at every step.

Be sympathetic. Understand that your wife is going through a lot of stress and pain.

Be proactive about medications and appointments.

Our fertility experts and counsellors always educate their patients about this very important part of ‘Self care during IVF’ as to get the best IVF results in Jaipur.
