IVF Tips for Success


Good morning ladies,

I will be starting my first ever IVF round in about a month and I am looking for everyone who has been through it to throw any advice they can my way! I already know much of the technical aspects of it and protocols and such. I am more so looking for tips you thought really helped, any old wives tales, all of that stuff. For example, did you do pineapple core? If so when, how much and did it help? Did you do a specific diet (gluten and dairy free, caffeine free, alcohol free)? I am just looking to gain as much information as I can from all you tough ladies who have been through this experience before.

Thanks so much!!! Drop any 2 cents you have here

Hi MN, do you mind I join?
I will be going for my first IVF in June or July too (after 4 unsuccessful IUIs), and it would be great to hear others experience and tips
Hope IVF is the answer for both of us!

Hahaha no problem Belle, Hopefully you don't have to make it over here to IVF land!
Yeah I just hear so many people do all of these things like pineapple core for example, but do you still do it 1-5 days post retrieval or does it make more sense to do it 1-5 days after transfer?
I just want to do anything (regardless of how ridiculous it sounds) to feel like I have any fragment of control over this process Spoken like a true Type A woman.

Would love to hear from you IVF ladies!

And welcome Hope!! So nice to have a cycle buddy

Hi girls.
I have had 2 cycles of ivf.
1st cycle was bfn with no frozen embryos.
2nd cycle bfp with 2 frozen embryos..
My daughter is now 2 and I am scheduled to start my 1st FET cycle in June.
The only thing I done for both cycles was the fresh pure pineapple juice the day of egg transfer for about 5 days.. 1 class per day.
Basically lay on the sofa for about 5 days no lifting etc just took it easy. No baths, just shower..
It is 3 years tomorrow since my last egg transfer.. dreams do come true and I wish yous all the luck in the world. Stay positive & be kind to yourself xx
Looks like I'll be starting round the same time as some of you's x

Jack thank you for sharing! I'm on my first IUI cycle and luckily the IUI will be happening on the weekend! I plan to lounge around that day and do as little as possible. I've never bought in to that pineapple thing BUT I'm going to give it a go this cycle LOL. There is lots of fresh pineapple in season this time of year anyway!

Mnelson you aren't the only Type A woman here haha.

Before retrieval I started taking royal jelly & coq10 which are both supposed to help with egg quality. (I also take omega 3, vitamin D & prenatals.) I drank pomegranate juice for my lining and switched to full-fat dairy. I gave up alcohol and coffee about a week before I started stims, and only had one cup of black tea a day.

After transfer I wore warm socks & took it really easy for the first couple of days. No lifting, pulling, etc. I drank lots of water, got enough sleep and stayed as calm as I could. I also took the whole week off of work, which was really wonderful.

Best of luck to you!!!

Hi! I'm assuming you've read about supplement cocktails and doing a low inflammation diet. I was VERY lucky and had my first IVF work with only three eggs retrieved. A few sort of "out there" things that worked for me: fertility yoga, fertility meditation (Circle and Bloom) and I always took a few deep breaths and said a prayer before administering my shots. I can give more details if this stuff is of interest to you!
