IVF treatment, which is a fertility treatment option that promises extremely successful results for couples who cannot have children naturally; Although it is a treatment option with a high success rate, individual success factors are also extremely important in treatment. Therefore, for a successful treatment result, you should follow your doctor's recommendations step by step from the beginning. Because an IVF treatment cycle is a process in which many factors must progress positively at the same time.

It is important to rest on the embryo transfer day!
Embryo transfer is one of the most important stages of IVF treatment. Now in this final phase of the treatment cycle, on the day of the transfer, the expectant mother should spend a few hours in the post-procedure clinic and rest after going home.

If you do not live in the same city as the treatment centre, it is recommended to wait at least 1 day before traveling. However, it is also important to avoid strenuous activities and maintain physical and mental health until the day of the pregnancy test.

Be careful with the use of drugs!
The success of an IVF cycle often depends on patients following their doctor's recommendations. For this reason, it is extremely important that you use the medications your doctor prescribes from the beginning of the treatment as desired.

Your doctor will prescribe some drugs after embryo transfer and these drugs must be used as directed. Sometimes, medication may be required after a positive pregnancy test result. Your doctor will inform you about this.

Get rid of bad habits!
From the moment you decide to have a child, it is important to live as if you were pregnant. Pay attention to your diet and general living conditions. If you smoke, quit, stay away from alcohol, and avoid excessive consumption of caffeine-containing beverages such as tea and coffee. All these habits should be abandoned before starting IVF treatment.

Pay attention to the nutrition program!
As with the above items, it is also important to pay attention to the feeding program after deciding on IVF treatment. Preferring foods that are stated to be beneficial for reproductive health may increase your chances of success in IVF treatment. From the moment you decide on treatment and until you give birth, you should follow a healthy eating program.

Keep processed foods, sugar, salt, unhealthy fats out of your life. Instead, get more into the kitchen and prepare your own meals. Choose fresh vegetables and fruits, healthy fats such as olive oil, foods containing omega-3s such as salmon, fiber and grain foods, and foods with high protein value.

A high protein nutrition program, reproductive health and IVF treatment can also increase the ability of the embryo to attach to the uterus. Therefore, from the moment you decide on IVF treatment, it is extremely important that you follow a healthy and balanced nutrition program with high protein value.

Use the supplements your doctor recommends!
Some nutrients play an important role not only to protect the health of the mother and baby during pregnancy, but also for the realization of pregnancy. One of them is folic acid, which is also known to be very important for fetal health.

If you have decided to start IVF treatment, it is recommended that you use folic acid supplements for 3 months before pregnancy. The use of folic acid supplements at the appropriate dose and at the right time should continue throughout pregnancy.

Adequate intake of folic acid is also extremely important for infant development. In addition to folic acid, your doctor will also recommend some additional vitamin and mineral supplements both during IVF treatment and during pregnancy. It is also important to use them regularly.

Remove stress from your life!
Stress is one of the factors known to negatively affect reproductive health. If you are considering starting IVF, you must find a way to reduce stress. In particular, you should remove stress-related factors from your life, as they may adversely affect the reproductive ability of the expectant mother and make embryo transfer difficult.

It may be beneficial to receive psychological support for the expectant mother to feel spiritually peaceful and comfortable. Relaxing methods such as meditating, doing yoga, reading your favorite books, watching movies can also be beneficial to reduce your stress during the treatment process.

Continue your daily routine!
In IVF treatment, the process after embryo transfer is the same as a natural pregnancy. Therefore, you should avoid feeling sick and go about your daily life. Leaving your daily routines can also make you feel more stressed and more restless. Therefore, after some rest after embryo transfer, you should continue your daily routines. Housework, brisk walks outdoors, and continuing your daily showers are all good choices.

However, it is also helpful to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities.

Not every symptom is a cause for concern!
Starting IVF does not mean you are sick. Therefore, it would be a pointless behavior to feel sick and in need of care.

After the embryo transfer takes place; Symptoms such as groin pain, breast tenderness and fullness, feeling tight, vaginal discharge may be seen and are not a cause for concern.

However; In cases such as feeling unbearable pain in the abdomen and groin area, heavy bleeding, you should definitely inform your doctor.

Drink lots of water!
Drinking water is important at every stage of your life. Water, which supports the general health of the body, is also important for reproductive health. If you have decided to start IVF treatment, you should pay attention to and even follow your daily water consumption. Experts recommend that expectant mothers drink an average of 2-2.5 liters of water per day.

Drinking enough water will support reproductive health and facilitate the embryo transfer process. Therefore, unless your doctor tells you otherwise, you should take care to drink regular and adequate amounts of water.
