We usually tell our patients that, unfortunately, there is very little they can do to change the treatment outcome. The most common recommendation is avoiding physical efforts, risky situations. In IVF cases in which the ovaries have been stimulated, avoid sexual intercourse because that may cause bleeding inside the belly. In terms of diet, avoid toxins and things like that.

Other than that, we recommend leading a normal life. The outcome is not going to depend on what you’re going to do. It is going to depend on what the embryo does and the dialogue between the embryo and the endometrium.

Unless you need to lift heavy things at work, and you are exposed to toxic substances and things like that, so the environment that we do not recommend if you are waiting for your pregnancy test, you still can go to work or gym. You may need to change the intensity of your exercise, talk to your trainer about the positions that you can do, for example, in yoga and which ones you need to avoid, and that’s it. If it works, it is going to work anyway.
