I would say that not that many things. I would say that if you have some common sense, you are going to avoid strong physical efforts,  risky situations, or those that may lead you to have a big impact like climbing or things like that. Other than that, you can lead a pretty normal life, of course, we recommend avoiding toxins like drinking alcohol and things like that. Though, the potential effect on the embryo is not really that much. In the end, I would probably say that you should avoid anything that may make you feel guilty if the outcome is negative.

In most of the cases of the negative, that’s something that’s going to be due to the embryo, the endometrium, the dialogue between them and there’s nothing we can do to solve that. It’s also important to cope with that situation, and usually, it’s easier if the patient feels that she or they have done their best and in this sense, if you think that you’re going to have this negative feeling if you go to the gym, don’t go to the gym, or try to walk, try to accommodate to what you feel,  it’s going to be okay for you.

Sticking to the scientific evidence, there is nothing really that you should avoid other than these situations that I’ve mentioned at the beginning like toxics and strong physical efforts and things like that.

I would recommend you avoid toxins like alcohol, smoking, and other drugs. Especially because it is important for the pregnancy, not because it has been demonstrated clearly that it can have an impact on the implantation rates but what we try to recommend for patients is to have a healthy lifestyle, as healthy as possible, and that is avoiding drugs, avoiding smoking, and avoiding an excessive intake of alcohol.
