Frozen embryo transfer plays a large role during in vitro fertilization - IVF - treatment. One of the most common questions fertility centers receive is of how women can best prepare to join those that have frozen embryo transfer success stories.
Five key things women can do to prepare for their frozen embryo transfer:
It’s common for women to have anxiety or stress in the days leading up to their frozen embryo transfer. However, stress has a real effect on fertility, so it is best to try and manage your stress as well as you can. Read a book, watch a movie, and spend time with your partner to avoid undue stress
Get Some Rest
Many people undervalue the importance of sleep. However, adequate sleep is needed in order for your body to work optimally. Aim to get eight hours of sleep per night. Turning off electronic devices and avoiding television in the hour leading to bedtime can help you get the rest you need.
Yoga has two distinct effects on fertility. First, yoga serves as a great stress reliever. The fluid movements and focus on breathing allow women to safely eliminate stress to prepare for their embryo transfer. Additionally, yoga has been shown to have a positive effect on pregnancy rates when done as a part of fertility treatment.
The food you eat has a tremendous impact on your overall health and fertility. It is important to not try and diet around the time of your embryo transfer. Eating nutrient rich foods and getting enough calories is important to support your body and to support a pregnancy.
