Do’s and Don’ts for Ensuring Successful Pregnancy Using IVF Treatment

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is an increasing popular fertility treatment performed to cure infertility issues in couples. The number of infertility cases is on the rise across the world and due to which infertile couples seek IVF treatment in order to have a baby. Infertility is when a couple cannot conceive despite the recurrent attempts of trying to get pregnant for six months to a year.

One of the leading causes behind infertility is unhealthy habits that people are accustomed to, bad lifestyle habits, high-stress levels, health problems, trying to conceive at a later age, etc. Due to these various reasons, the couples fail at conceiving and have to take the assistance of fertility treatment to accomplish their dream of enjoying parenthood. IVF is one of the most famous and extensively performed assisted reproductive techniques to help infertile couples conceive.

In an IVF treatment, fertilization occurs outside the human body or without the aid of a human body. This way it bypasses various steps involved in the natural process of attaining conception due to which the couple were not able to conceive naturally and makes pregnancy attainable. The male and female gametes that are used in the fertility treatment are analyzed carefully for finding any anomalies and removing them for an effective embryo formation and effectuating a healthy pregnancy, which helps in enhancing the chances of healthy IVF pregnancy.

For increasing your chances of achieving a healthy IVF pregnancy, there are some do’s and don’ts that the patient should adhere to in order to acquire success in the IVF treatment.

Maintain a Healthier Lifestyle

Although it is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle in your life, however, it is most advisable when a couple chooses to undergo an IVF treatment. The doctor may suggest you incorporate a nutritious diet into your schedule or abstain from certain habits that may cause trouble in the effective attainment of pregnancy. The quality of your lifestyle affects the quality of your eggs and sperms, which together form an embryo that is placed inside the woman’s womb. Therefore, it is crucial for ensuring a fertile environment inside your body for assuring better chances of success in the fertility treatment.

Adopt a nutrition-rich diet

You should begin by making alterations to your diet as what you put into your stomach on a daily basis because it creates a fertile environment inside your body, which increases the chances of success in your IVF. Opting for a nutrition-rich diet is important for your fertility and pregnancy and ingesting foods with rich in vitamins, zinc, folic acids, antioxidants, zinc, and foods with other essential nutrients help in nourishing your body in the course of your IVF treatment. It is also advisable to take supplements such as coenzyme q 10, omega 3 fish oil, prenatal vitamin, folic acid, vitamin A, C, and E, iron, etc for preparing yourself for the IVF treatment. One of the major causes of failure in IVF cycle is a vitamin D deficiency; therefore, taking vitamin D supplements is suggested in order to increase the chances of conception.

Increase your fluid consumption

The patient undergoing the IVF treatment should increase their water consumption as it helps in detoxifying your body for removing unwanted elements. It aids in dealing with the complications involved in a pregnancy and handling mood swings. Drinking a sufficient quantity of water also helps in reducing the detrimental effects of heavy medication given to the patient during the IVF treatment.

Abstain from rigorous physical activities

While it is critical to maintaining a healthy body weight for the IVF treatment, it is also important to avoid intense physical activities as it may cause potential damage to the reproductive organs of the patient. Heavy workout can also impact your chances of success in the IVF. However, you can stick to a low-intensity exercising routine that involves walks, yoga, stretching, etc.

Avoid alcohol and smoking

Consumption of alcohol, smoking, and even smoking has detrimental effects on the quality of sperms and eggs. Alcohol is pernicious to the effective development of a fetus and should be avoided if a couple wishes to have a healthy baby. Also, excessive smoking consumption negatively impacts the health of an individual and decreases fertility. Therefore, it is suggested to the patient to abstain from alcohol and smoking or any other addictions if they want to get pregnant using IVF.

Avoid stress and meditate

IVF treatment is a long and arduous treatment process and therefore it is important to maintain your emotional balance and keep your energy levels high. While it is normal to feel and doubtful regarding the results of the IVF treatment but it is not helpful in the long-term. It is crucial to stay positive and avoid participating in any type of stressful thinking if you want to experience positive results in your IVF treatment. Try meditating for de-stressing yourself if your stress levels are high.

How does age affect women fertility

How Does Age Affect Women Fertility ?

Category : blog

A woman is born with all the eggs she is going to have in her lifetime. The age of women eggs gets decrease with her increased age. This is the reason that age is an important factor which affects women fertility. According to the study, good health of the women can improve the chance of her to get pregnant and having a healthy baby, however, it does not override the effects of age on the woman’s fertility.

Earlier the women who are in their early to mid-20s have around 65 to 75% of chances of getting pregnant every month but now with the change in scenarios women are busy with their careers, prefer late marriages etc. due to which they start planning the baby in their mid-30’s where generally women fertility starts declining and the decline speeds up after the age of 35. By age 40, the chance of women to get pregnant in any monthly cycle is dipped down to around 20 to 25%.

Generally, people have a misconception that IVF treatment can overcome age-related infertility in women; however, the increased age of women also affects chances of success with IVF. It has been found that the chance of a live birth resulting from one IVF cycle for women of different ages varies from each other. At Fertility Center Nepal, we have fertility experts who make the pregnancy possible for the women above the age of 40 years in one IVF cycle and there are some women who are under the age of 35 have gone through more than 2 IVF cycles to achieve the pregnancy.

The fertility experts at Fertility Center Nepal advice the older women to use the donated eggs from young, healthy and fertile women to increase her chances of pregnancy.

How long it takes a woman to get pregnant depending on her age?

The study says that 8 out of 10 of couples where the women are under the age of 40 years will get pregnant naturally within a year of having regular unprotected sex for every 2 to 3 days.

It has been found that the couples who are having regular unprotected sex:

  • Around 7 out of 10 women at the age of 30 years will conceive a baby within one year.
  • Around 5 out of 10 women at the age of 35 years will conceive a baby within one year.
  • Around 3 out of 10 women at the age of 40 years will conceive a baby within one year.

The fertility experts at Fertility Center Nepal says that there are several other causes for fertility problems, but sometimes we are unable to find the exact cause and this is known as unexplained infertility. Unexplained infertility is rare when the woman is in her 20s but becomes the most common cause of infertility in women over 35 years of age.

At Fertility Center Nepal we have treatments like IVF (in vitro fertilization) which help the women who are facing difficulties in conceiving a baby.  It is important for you to meet your gynecologist if you haven’t conceived after a year of trying or within six months of trying to conceive if you are over 36 years.

If you are dealing with any other health concerns related to your fertility for e.g. endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid problems, etc. then you should consult your doctor at an early stage when you found the symptoms.

It is important to know for everyone that age is not the only thing that affects your fertility, other things like smoking, alcohol, use of other drugs, obesity and sexually transmitted diseases, etc. can also impact your ability to get pregnant.

If you are not ready in your mid-20’s to conceive a baby and thinking about having a baby later in your life then try not to get too stressed as it impacts the age of your fertility.

What if the male partner is older?

According to the study, men’s age also affects the ability to have a baby as it declines with age, but not as much as women’s.

It has been found that it becomes difficult to get pregnant for a woman if the age of the male partner is above 40 and female age is also over 40 years.

Other reasons why older men may have less chance of pregnancy are as follows:

  • Poor quality or low quality of sperm
  • Abnormal shape of sperm
  • The lower level of male sex hormones
  • Less interest in sex

How does the age of women affect pregnancy?

It has been found that most women over the ideal age of childbearing have healthy pregnancies and babies; however, complications in pregnancy such as miscarriage also increase with their increased age.

The rate of miscarriage occurs in women around:

  • 1 out of 10 pregnancies in women younger than the age of 30 years.
  • 2 out of 10 pregnancies in women between the age group of 35 to 39.
  • 4 out of 10 pregnancies in women older than the age of 45 years.

Women who are over the age of 40 years are at higher risk of problems in pregnancy which includes the following:

  • Diabetes and high blood pressure
  • Having twins or more create complications
  • Stillbirth
  • Cesarean section or longer labor pain
  • Baby with Down’s syndrome
  • Pre-eclampsia this is a very dangerous condition for baby and mother both.

What women do to make her healthy late pregnancy?

The following are the things that you should keep in your mind before you plan to have a baby and these are:

  • Maintain your ideal body weight and it should not be more or less than your body mass index (BMI).
  • Stop smoking
