Diet and Lifestyle Changes to Boost IVF Success

Diet and lifestyle changes can make all the difference in boosting the outcomes of the IVF procedure. Each small step matters when it comes to SCI IVF Hospital because we know that everything counts if it improves the chances for success. So, here are some nutritional tips and advice from our experts on what you should be eating and doing differently during your journey toward becoming a parents.

Nutritional Advice for IVF

  • Eat a Balanced Diet: You need to eat a variety of foods from different groups, such as fruits, vegetables, proteins (lean meats), and carbohydrates (whole grains), and fats (healthy oils). Such foods provide necessary antioxidants that support good reproductive health.
  • Include Folate or Folic Acid-Rich Foods: These are important nutrients required for DNA synthesis as well as cell division. Therefore, they help in enhancing egg quality besides embryo development.
  • Take Omega-Three Fatty Acids: These types of fats assist in balancing hormones, thus reducing inflammation, which may hinder conception ability.
  • Protein Intake: Ensure that there is enough supply of proteins necessary for the body during this time of the IVF treatment cycle.
  • Cut Down Alcohol Consumption & Caffeine Intake: Alcohol interferes with the ovulation process while caffeine affects hormone levels. Hence, these two should be avoided or reduced greatly throughout the entire period one is undergoing an IVF program – also quit smoking altogether.
  • Drink Lots Of Water: Keeping your body well-hydrated is essential for overall health including reproduction therefore take at least eight glasses of clean drinking water daily.

Lifestyle Adjustments to Enhance IVF Results

  • Keep a Healthy Weight: Being underweight or overweight can cause fertility problems. Boost your IVF success rate by getting to a healthy weight.
  • Exercise Regularly: Moderate physical activities such as walking, swimming, and yoga can reduce stress, enhance blood circulation, and balance hormones.
  • Stress Management: Prolonged anxiety affects fertility negatively. Mindfulness meditation, deep breathing exercises, and acupuncture are some of the ways through which one can regulate their stress levels.
  • Stop Smoking: Smoking affects both egg and sperm quality. Therefore quitting smoking will increase the chances for successful IVF treatment.
  • Good Sleep: Hormonal balance and overall health require enough sleep (7-8 hours per night). Create a regular sleep routine for restorative restfulness.
  • Avoid Environmental Poisons: Plastics, pesticides, and household cleaners contain harmful chemicals that should be avoided at all costs or minimized greatly if possible by going natural/organic.
