IVF and Treatment Top Tips  

The following are top tips while you are going through IVF with the aid of Logan Maya Abdominal Massage

  1. If you like porridge 'Oatbran' is th best choice. This helps with digestion and bowel problems and eases constipation associated with crinone gel and cyclogest. 
  2. Eat 1 portion of Pineapple per day. This contains bromalian which makes the uterus sticky.  Why not try a pineapple suki tea.
  3. Eat 5 brazil nuts a day. These contain seleniuim which is good for egg reserve.
  4. Eat 5 walnuts a day. These contain progesterone.
  5. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day.
  6. Limit caffeine intake to 200 miligram a day (any higher than this has shown a link to miscarraige).
  7. The 80/20 rule... be good 80% of the time and less good the other 20% everyone needs a release and a break!!
  8. During the down regulation I encourage rest, early nights and walking.  During stims, no exercise & no lifting as there is a danger of rupture of the ovary or hyperstimulation.
