I know that this is going to probably be the most viewed video because that is what all women want to know. What can I do to improve my outcome once the embryos have been transferred when I’ve had that wonderful embryo transfer inside my wonderfully prepared endometrium? I’m afraid that I need to say that there’s very little that you can do.  What happens after the embryo is transferred depends a lot on the dialogue between the embryo and the endometrium.  This is something that cannot be modified, changed, influence by any external things.

From a psychological perspective, we don’t want the patient to think that if the outcome is negative and despite us insisting that they can do very little to change the outcome, we don’t want them to think they could have done something better. Therefore, we recommend patients consider themselves pregnant once the embryo is transferred and do the same things that a pregnant woman should do. Avoid toxics, strong physical effort, and risky situations, but as I’ve said, that is something that should help them cope with a potential negative, not something that is going to increase the implantation rate.

As I always say, when a couple gets pregnant naturally, they are actually leading a normal life, they go to the gym, have a glass of wine, they do whatever they want to do. If the embryos want to implant, they will implant, regardless of what the patient does.

Try to lead a normal life, try to be occupied with the things that you usually do and only try to avoid all the things that make you feel guilty if the outcome is negative, but that’s it. Unfortunately, not that much to do.
