Answer: Hello dear. Yes ragi, java and millets are fine to eat in moderate quantity.
Returning to usual activities after the IUI procedure on the very same day is not a problem. You can start working, exercising or even run errands almost immediately, if you are comfortable with it.
Though there is no need for bed rest, travel restrictions or diet maintenance after IUI procedure, however, if you feel the need to rest or if you feel uncomfortable following an IUI procedure, you can take some rest for a few days.
There is no restriction in having sexual intercourse right after the IUI procedure. In fact, it will only aid in the process and its positive outcome.
However, in case there is a bleeding while conducting the process, you need to prohibit from having intercourse for about 48 hours.
Even if there is pain or cramping felt after the process, avoid taking any kind of NSAIDs or pain relieving medicine like ibuprofen. Rather, consult your fertility physician as he or she would be able to prescribe some other medicine such as acetaminophen or buscopan.
Do not panic about the pregnancy and wait for about two weeks, before taking the test. This is because the implantation of the embryo takes a few days after the ovulation has occurred. Moreover, the increase in the levels of hormones again takes a few days and only when the hormone levels have changed you will get an exact result. Doing the test early may give wrong results.
To assist in the process of implantation of the embryo, the doctor might give hormonal support. These could be prescribed as medicines to be taken orally or to be inserted through the vagina as suppositories. Whatever the procedure is, it should be followed as per the instructions of the doctor.
Though there has been no evidence of swimming interfering in the IUI process, still, it is a good idea to avoid swimming for 48 hours, after the IUI procedure.
In case you are on suppository hormonal medicines, you should ask your doctor, whether you should continue swimming or not.
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 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 this helps.
