One of the methods available to help people with fertility issues conceive a baby is in vitro fertilization (IVF). The process involves taking an egg out of the woman's ovaries and fertilizing it with sperm in a lab.

A woman's womb is the place where the fertilized egg, also known as an embryo, is placed to continue growing and developing. It can be done with your own eggs and sperm, sperm from a donor, or eggs and sperm from your spouse.

IVF involves Six main stages:

•  Suppressing your natural cycle – your menstrual cycle is firstly suppressed with medicine.

•  Utilizing medication to stimulate the production of more than one egg at a time from your ovaries

•  Keeping track of the development and maturing of your eggs - an ultrasound scan is performed to monitor the development of the eggs, and medication is utilized to hasten their maturation.

•  Collecting the eggs - your ovaries are punctured with a needle via your vagina in order to extract the eggs.

•   Fertilizing the eggs: To enable fertilization, the eggs are combined with the sperm for a few days.

•   Transplanting the embryo(s): One or two fertilized eggs are transferred into your womb as embryos.

•    You must wait two weeks after the embryo(s) have been placed in your womb before attempting to conceive to determine whether the procedure was successful.

The Do’s

Put your health first for at least three months. Pregnancy in good health begins well before conception. Spermatogenesis, or the process of producing mature, functioning sperm, takes place over the course of around three months. In other words, it will take 3–4 months for any lifestyle modifications or weight loss goals you've discussed with your partner to fully improve the quality of your sperm. Beginning early, maintain it throughout the IVF cycle.

Significantly while sperm health is important, women's pregnancy health is even more crucial. Prenatal vitamins should be started at least three months before trying to conceive, according to conventional guidelines. Consider this: not only will the development of your baby's key organs begin with you, but also every system and nourishment will come from you. When you give birth, you will be creating a creature that is made entirely of you, including your reserves of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. It truly takes a lot out of you to carry a baby. In other words, prenatal vitamins are crucial for your own health as well as the health of the fetus.

Maintain stress control. More than just a feeling of stress. Actually, it is a physiological reaction. Your health is affected, and the longer you are under stress, the more severe the effect. You'll need a strong toolkit of stress management methods to draw from as you won't be able to de-stress with alcoholsmokingokes. Here are some suggestions- like- Drawing/painting/coloring; DIY projects, Meditation/breathwork, Woodworking, Sports, Hiking, Swimming, Boxing, Cleaning, Fostering kittens/puppies, Cooking, Writing, and Photography.

Because they take your attention off your tension and get your brain working in new ways, creative hobbies are among the quickest and easiest ways to relax. While you enjoy yourself, your brain is working in the background to process and come up with answers. When it's over, you'll feel better and have made some progress!

Eat sensibly. Engage in light exercise. Put off your marathon training till after the birth. For the time being, aim for a few hours of light to moderate aerobic exercise per week. Although it can be challenging to define what constitutes healthy eating, the following guidelines are excellent starting points. Consume foods that are high in nutrients, such as plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, seafood, eggs, avocados, and other foods that are rich in healthy fats and necessary nutrients. Avoid sugar and foods that cause inflammation.

Soak up those vitamins. Diet before conception is essential for a healthy, successful pregnancy. Prenatal vitamins for women spring to mind first when we think of prenatal vitamins for pregnancy. However, vitamin supplements should be used by both men and women to maximize their intake of micronutrients. Fathers' health is routinely disregarded, but sperm make up 50% of a child's genetic makeup. Supplementing vitamins for women is especially important since, in addition to the nutrients needed for conception, growth, and delivery of a healthy baby, the mom also needs enough nutrients for her own well-being. Start taking the recommended supplements a few months before to starting IVF after consulting with your doctor about which ones are ideal.

Every night, you should at least seven hours of sleep. You've improved your nutrition, increased your activity, and reduced your stress. A restful night's sleep can just occur naturally. We define "good" as lasting at least seven hours. Americans frequently lack sleep and survive primarily on coffee and adrenaline. Even after years of convincing yourself that you don't require sleep, you do. more so right now. The emotional toll of IVF puts a toll on marriage in addition to the physical requirements for participation. You'll require some sleep. After IVF is successful, you'll both be busy expanding your families and growing your life. You'll be exhausted after this!

A few tips:

• Create a brief nighttime routine to make going to sleep quick, uncomplicated, and joyful.

•  Invest in a white noise machine to aid in sleep (and stay asleep).

•  Install blackout drapes, and start donning a comfortable sleep mask.

Assemble relatives and friends. IVF can be a tough, adventurous, exciting, and unpredictable emotional journey. Even though physical health is crucial, it is not everything, especially in difficult times. Following the other advice in this article is vital, but so is having someone you can lean on for consolation and support.

The Don’ts

Avoid consuming alcohol. Alcohol has been shown to significantly affect pregnancy, according to research. One study found that the odds of infertility are about 50% higher for both men and women who consume more than four beers each week. Men who regularly consume beer and women who regularly consume white wine both have reduced rates of successful implantation (by 22%). In addition to having significantly fewer eggs, women who drink have decreased estrogen levels.

Don't rely solely on coffee. There is evidence to support the claim that caffeine increases the risk of IVF failure. We recommend stress reduction and getting more sleep over consuming more caffeine because exhaustion and stress often result in higher caffeine intake. Yes, giving up your daily cup of coffee is difficult. One small cup every now and then is acceptable, but changing your sleep patterns, nutrition, and exercise routines may help you feel more energized and happier naturally without running the danger of becoming pregnant or experiencing the afternoon slump.

Don't work out to lose weight. The only recommendation that is explicitly directed at women is this. Your doctor may have advised you to lose weight or you may be motivated by better health. In either case, we advise you to trim down before beginning IVF. An endurance test, pregnancy is the ultramarathon of ultramarathons. In reality, as was already indicated, you'll need as much additional energy and nutrition as you can acquire. Avoid doing it if you are in a calorie deficit. The body is also stressed during exercise. Exercise that is modest to moderate can help reduce stress. But according to research, beginning a new fitness routine, particularly an intense one can prevent conception.

Get ready for IVF right away. Start putting this advice into practice in your life right away if you haven't already started your rounds. These suggestions will help you stay healthy, increase your chances of getting pregnant, and have a healthy child from preconception through pregnancy.
