In this procedure, a qualified fertility practitioner combines a sperm and an egg manually in a lab, and then he transfer the embryo to the mother's uterus. It sounds complicated but it is common in contemporary society so you should not feel shy about it at all. Unfortunately, the success rate for IVF is not 100% that means it may fail for a number of reasons including lifestyle factors, maternal age, and reproductive history among others. Here are 5 essential tips to follow after In Vitro Fertility (IVF) Treatment.

1. You should eat well in addition to maintaining a healthy weight level.

Your body starts preparing itself for two people once the embryo is in the uterus. However, if there is an insufficient level of nutrition then the chances of a successful IVF diminish rapidly. You ought to eat foods such as whole grains, vegetables, lean meat, nuts, fruits and avocado. They will provide you with fiber content that is necessary to keep your body strong as it starts to undergo serious changes. Your weight level is also an indication of how healthy you are so be sure to make some serious changes if it goes below your recommended Body Mass Index.

2. You should avoid alcohol, caffeine, and smoking.

In normal pregnancies, alcohol can cause preterm birth, stillbirth, birth defects and miscarriages. Studies show that women who smoke take longer to conceive than non-smoking women. Caffeine also has devastating effects on the reproductive process in men and women especially when it comes to the embryo. Therefore, it is best to avoid such items because they might interfere negatively with the embryo as they do in other stages of the reproductive process.

3. You should eat organic foods as much as possible.

Inorganic foods contain a significant amount of metals and chemicals from the pesticides, fertilizers, and preservatives used in their production. These metals, though in small amounts, might interfere negatively with the body's physiological processes especially when mother is at such a sensitive stage of IVF and same goes for any chemicals in such foods. Therefore, the safest option is to opt for organic foods that contain little or no artificial substances.

4. You should sleep well.

In Vitro Fertility places a bit of stress on the mother's body. She is likely to feel tired or nauseated during this time as her body tries to adapt to the embryo in her uterus. She needs as much rest as she can get and sleeping well might do the trick. A minimum of eight hours of comfortable sleep each night is ideal.

5. You should maintain a positive mind-set.

Human health also depends on the psychological health of a person as much as it does on their physical state. Success rates for IVF diminish considerably if you feel agitated, depressed or stressed at all times. Your body and minds needs to be calm as much as possible for as long as it is possible. Positivity generally leads to great results so do not keep worrying about the success of the IVF process. Instead, focus on the future and hope for the best knowing that you are doing all you can to make it successful.
