Stress is associated with adverse IVF outcomes  so making a plan to manage your stress is important for both you and pregnancy success. Ensuring you are informed before and during your fertility treatment goes a long way to reducing the stress and anxiety associated with infertility. Treatment awareness, improving lifestyle and understanding how much positive lifestyle change improves treatment outcome can improve your chance of success.
Women with unexplained infertility receiving education and improving lifestyle more than doubled the success of their assisted reproductive treatment (46% pregnancy rate) when compared to a control group who did not receive education and lifestyle change (19% pregnancy rate) .
Stay informed and adopt evidence based lifestyle changes that will improve your treatment outcome. What you eat and how much exercise you take part in are two key ingredients that can enhance your fertility. Want to know what you should be doing? Join us at The IVF Project!
