Are there any restrictions on physical or personal activities during an IVF cycle?

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a process by which sperm outside the body fertilizes the egg. The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an egg or eggs from the woman’s ovaries and then letting sperm fertilize them in a liquid in a laboratory.

Are there any restrictions on physical or personal activities during an IVF cycle?

Typically, doctors advise the following
  • Perform all those activities that will alleviate your stress levels and avoid those that will increase stress.
  • Try to avoid TV programs that can cause unnecessary stress - crime serials, police story types, mother-in-law and daughter-in-law serials etc.
  • The practice of pranayama and meditation helps a lot.
  • Physical activities which are overtly exerting like running long distances, strenuous work-outs etc. to be avoided.
  • Avoid unhygienic food. This is because if you catch any infections (food poisoning, fever, cold etc.), then treating that may impact the IVF related treatment plans.
  • At home and at work, try not to take up responsibilities that may increase the workload and stress.
  • Keep yourself well hydrated.
  • Try to be happy, watch movies and read books that make you happy. Do the thing that will put a smile on your face.
  • If there are any other medicines that you are taking or planning to take, please inform your fertility doctor before taking them. It can be as simple as a tablet for a headache or body pain. If you are on medication for asthma, hypertension, thyroid, diabetes etc., keep the fertility doctor informed and take that medication as per your fertility doctor's advise.
  • Keeping yourself physically active is important. There is no need for bed rest.
  • Continue with your daily schedule keeping the above points in mind. Remember, if you are idle, then the mind gets an opportunity to over-analyze everything and create unnecessary stress.

There is a slight risk of birth defects or low IQ in babies with IVF but % is very low 47 in 100,000 compared to 40 in 100,000 babies concieved naturally.
