Question: what precautions after ivf

Answer: Furthermore, staying in regular touch with the doctor keeps the would-be mother aware of the minutest symptoms and helps early detection of factors that may pose a threat to pregnancy. Tips for prospective mothers: 1) If you experience any unfavorable symptoms, inform your doctor immediately. Apart from medical care, personal care should also be taken care of. Having a nutritious diet full of vitamins, minerals, calcium, and iron will do good to you and your baby. Refraining from unhealthy habits like smoking, alcohol or caffeinated products is advised. 2) In addition, pay special attention to your body. If you feel weak, tired or lethargic, take a nap as and when required to refresh yourself during the exhausting weeks of pregnancy. 3) Any small episodes of bleeding along with spotting, cramps or lower abdomen pain should be noted and reported to your obstetrician immediately. However, if mild spotting (implantation bleeding) is observed in the first few weeks of pregnancy, it should be watched carefully and if it’s repeated, then follow up with your doctor. 4) Avoid having intercourse throughout IVF pregnancy, especially in early pregnancy weeks. 5) If you are very cautious about your pregnancy, wait until your first antenatal scan is done. An antenatal scan helps in examining your baby’s heartbeat rate, detection of chromosomal abnormalities (Down syndrome), development of the baby, images of the gestational sac, ovaries, and possibility of miscarriage. 6) In the first trimester, eat small frequent meals instead of 3 large ones to avoid morning sickness. Drink plenty of fruit juices and coconut water for proper hydration. 7) You can do yoga, meditation or breathing exercises to keep you active throughout the day. Most importantly, I would advise all expecting mothers to stay positive and enjoy the journey of becoming a mother because you have worked hard to get here!

Answer: Hello dear. If you are going for the IUI or IVF process, there are quite some dietary and lifestyle changes that you need to follow. Have a look at them. Eat as many fruits, nuts and leafy vegetables as possible Eat fresh and home cooked food Do not eat processed food Do not eat fishes which contain mercury too much Eat 6 small meals every day Include quinoa, brown rice and other complex carbohydrates in diet Avoid eating hot and spicy foods, foods that are causing more indigestion. Do not add hing or asafoetida to food. Fruits to avoid include grapes, papaya and pineapple as these have a capacity of breaking down the endometrium layer and make you bleed. This can lead to miscarriage. Although, there are contradictory views about it, it is best to check with your doctor. Avoid smoking and Avoid alcohol consumption. Reduce tea, coffee or other caffeine consumptions to about 2-3 cups a day or even less Stay away from any kind of radiation and heat. Avoid sitting on the floor, sudden bending forward or backward, or doing anything that puts pressure on your lower abdomen particularly after IVF. In case you need to bend for picking up something from the ground, it is best to bend your knees, go down and get it rather than bending from the waist. Avoid carrying anything above 5kgs of weight. Make sure to hold the object near to your body for ensuring that you have a good balance and minimize the risks of fall. Avoid climbing stairs to much and in hurry.Avoid travelling for more than 2-3 hours at a stretch. Get enough sleep – at least 8 hours of sleep is a must. The period after embryo transfer is very important. Always take enough bed rest. Pre-natal care is very important at this stage. Avoiding travelling is a great way to reduce chances of failing the IUI and IVF procedures. At this stage, it must be mentioned that if IUI or IVF, there is nothing that you could have done to make it successful. No specific diet, alternative therapy or technique or practice could have assured it. Hence, you should not blame yourself. However, following these tips will certainly help you in bettering your chances. Hope it helps.
