The answer is basically rather than what do you have to avoid is what you have to do. What you have to do is just use common sense. You are going to be in stimulation, and the way your body is going to respond to that stimulation can be different even amongst different cycles. Not just from patient to patient, but also the same patient may have different cycles despite having one month after the other.

The thing is that basically, you must listen to your body and try to avoid those things that your body does not let you do.  These are usually things like doing exercise, strong physical effort or deal with risky situations, or for example, having sex after an egg collection.

Other than that, well patients tend to lead a pretty normal life, and you can do even exercise, but with a lower intensity, of course, we recommend avoiding toxins like alcohol and smoking because this may have an impact not directly on the quality of the eggs but probably on the implantation. That’s something that should be avoided, and that’s it. Try to lead a life as healthy as possible.
