Artificial insefining (IVF) is a assisted reproduction technique for couples. One of the most important stages and affecting the success or failure of IVF is the stage after the transfer of the embryo. There are many factors that influence this stage and one of them is the rest and nutrition of the maternity after embryo transfer.

1. Nutrition after embryo transfer

After transferringthe embryo , the maternity focuses on a balanced, healthy diet and does not make any major changes in the diet during this time. Ende historians recommend post-embryonic maternity transfer to use a Mediterranean-style diet. This is a plant-based diet that provides the positive nutrients that the body needs.

Research shows that the Mediterranean diet improves IVF success rates in non-obese women under the age of 35. While studying otherwise, eating a healthy diet in the first weeks after embryo transfer certainly does not affect the ability of the fetus to conceive and development.

Besides, this diet also improves the quality of health of sperm, so women should also encourage their spouses to follow the Mediterranean diet together.

The Mediterranean diet is as follows:

  • Eat mainly plants such as fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Choose lean proteins, such as fish and poultry.
  • Eat whole grains, like quinoa, farro seeds and cereal pasta.

Whole grains

The best nutrition after transferring embryos are whole grains
  • Add additional legumes, including chickpeas, chickpeas and lentils.
  • Switch to low-fat dairy products.
  • Eat healthy fats, such as butter, olive oil, nuts and seeds.
  • Limit foods such as red meat, sugar, refined cereals and other processed foods.
  • Reduce salt consumption by using herbal ingredients and alternative spices.

2. Rest after embryo transfer

Many women avoid or stop exercising after transferring embryos because they are afraid to affect their ability to conceive. Recent research suggests that it is not advisable to rest completely in bed.

However, maternity should not do anything such as hard work or excessive physical exercise, it is important to keep the blood circulation in the body going well to nourish the fetus so the maternity should not lie or sit a lot. Maintaining normal living habits is also important to keep the psychology of the maternity stable after the transfer of lungs.


Women should also not over-exercise after transferring the embryo

For women with a normal body mass index (BMI), who have previously exercised and have a thick lining of the uterus, it is advisable to continue exercising. However, women should reduce their activity by no more than 15 miles per week.

During IVF, it requires a lot of effort to affect both physical and mental health, so women need to take time to rest, recover and listen to the needs of the body. If you are tired, stop and sit back and rest. Leave cho work to others, take a gentle walk in the fresh air, eat scientifically.
