Has anyone else been told to drink milk by their clinic while stimming? I'm at the Royal in Glasgow and they didn't but a couple of people that see my acupuncturist have been told by their private clinics to drink milk and eat dairy protein as it's good for your eggs during this stage. Just started stimming and wondered if it was a good idea?? Can't hurt I figure?!
I drank over a pint of milk a day during both cycles an both failed but i have low AMH anyway so egg quality issues. I have just ordered some DHEA though as heard fab things about it. If your AMH is good there should be no issues for u though xxx
yes I was told to drink 3 glasses of milk a day on my first ivf. Am still doing it now as I wait for my next cycle to start round 2, as i thought it wouldnt hurt, it helps with your womb lining. Also brazil nuts. Good luck
I was told dairy is no good even if you are not lactose intolerant as it causes inflammation in the body at levels you would never be able to feel . Everyone is told something different! Also dairy gobbs up/thickens mucus. Plus the hormones in milk and cheese can effect us as well as hormones in meats and chicken. Eggs are not from a cow and if they are free of hormones that is good.
I agree with the above - was told dairy is full of hormones and is known to cause inflammation (have RA and just found out during IVF about this)...was told to not increase but told maintaining pre-cycle levels should not be a problem.
I believe it's just protein/dairy in the US that is full of hormones/antibiotics. It's my understanding that it was banned in Europe. So.. I live in Ohio, I started eating organic dairy/meat this cycle, which does not have all the additives. Don't know if that was why, but this cycle I had much bigger follicles than last time. I'm hoping it will help me get a bfp this time.
