5 Factors which are Important for Success of IVF Treatment

5 Factors which are Important for Success of IVF Treatment

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a medical procedure that side-steps the sexual act of conceiving and helps infertile couples, conceive a biological child. It involves the manual process of fertilization by combining an egg and sperm in the laboratory and then implanting the embryo into the female to impregnate her.

A number of factors play an important role in the success of the procedure and some of them are:

  1. Lifestyle habits: Certain lifestyle factors can significantly affect your prospects of getting pregnant through this route. Smoking can reduce your prospect of success using this procedure by about 50%. It can cause you to have lesser number of eggs retrieved during the procedure while increasing instances of miscarriages. Likewise, obesity, alcohol use, consumption of excessive caffeine and drugs can adversely affect your chances of getting pregnant using IVF.
  2. Embryo status: Embryos that are better developed with good grade stand a higher chance of experiencing success than less developed embryos. More importantly, not every embryo is able to survive the development process.
  3. The age at which you get pregnant: A factor that plays a role in influencing your chances of experiencing success in your IVF procedure is the age at which you opt for this procedure. The lower your age, the chances that you may get pregnant and deliver a healthy child using your own eggs witness an increase. On the other hand, if you're aged 41 and above, or your egg reserve is very low donor eggs are the most preferred option as they help to increase your prospects of meeting a success.
  4. Cause of Infertility: If your supply of eggs is normal, success rate using IVF is high. Women who suffer from the problem of endometriosis experience lesser chances of getting pregnant than women who have unexplained fertility. 
  5. Reproductive history: IVF success rate chances are higher if you've delivered a baby previously using IVF.

Hi, You are suffering from irregular menstrual syndrome.Try to normalize before you conceive.Infertility is defined as a couple's inability to become pregnant within one year of unprotected intercourse. Generally, the highest chance of pregnancy is when sex happens 1-2 days before ovulation. If you have a regular 28-day cycle, count back 14 days from when you expect your next period to start. Plan on having sex every other day around that time -- say, days 12 and 14. Try to regular it and take chance as per advice.

What should be the diet of one and a half month pregnant woman to get healthy and fair baby?

What should be the diet of one and a half month pregnant woman to get healthy and fair baby?
Hello. If you don’t have any medical condition and if your diet is poor to begin with, it is even more important to make sure you have a healthy diet now. You need more vitamins and minerals, especially folic acid and iron. You need a few more calories during your pregnancy as well. Getting your diet right for pregnancy is more about what you eat than about how much. Limit junk food, as it has lots of calories with few or no nutrients. Eat a variety of foods from these different food groups each day: Milk and dairy products: skimmed milk, yogurt/curd, buttermilk (chhaach), cottage cheese (paneer). They contain calcium. Cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses and nuts: these are good sources of protein if you do not eat meat. Vegetarians need about 45 grams of nuts and 2/3 of a cup of legumes for protein each day. Vegetables and fruits: these provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. Avoid Papaya. Meat, fish and poultry: these provide concentrated proteins. Fluids: Drink lots of fluids, especially water and fresh fruit juices. Make sure you drink clean boiled or filtered water. Carry your own water when out of the house, or buy bottled water from a reputed brand. Avoid packaged juices as they have a very high sugar content. Fats and oils: Ghee, butter, coconut milk and oil are high in saturated fats, which are not very healthy. Hydrogenated vanaspati oil and ghee is high in trans fats, which are as bad for you as saturated fats. A better source of fat is vegetable oils because these contain more unsaturated fat. Foods to be avoided in normal pregnancy: Raw or partly cooked eggs, Raw or undercooked meat, Caffeine, Liver, Cold cured meats, Vitamin/fish oil supplements, papaya

Hello Lybrate users cause of infertility in female infertility include problems with ovulation, damage to fallopian tubes or uterus, or problems with the cervix.

Cause of infertility in male like, difficulty with ejaculation or small volumes of fluid ejaculated, reduced sexual desire or difficulty maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction, pain, swelling or a lump in the testicle area, r recurrent respiratory infections, Abnormal breast growth (gynecomastia) Decreased facial or body hair or other signs of a chromosomal or hormonal abnormality Having a lower than normal sperm count (fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen or a total sperm count of less than 39 million per ejaculate. So,you should get all test done and advice them to visit to doctor personally and consult about issue.

Yoga During Pregnancy

Ayurveda, Delhi
Yoga During Pregnancy

How to start:

If you have been practising yoga already, you can continue during your pregnancy. However, if you are planning to start yoga as a form of exercise during pregnancy, it is ideal to do so in the second trimester. Yoga can be performed once a week or every day. The duration can range from 5 to 60 minutes per session. Follow these guidelines while practising yoga:

✓ Listen to your body carefully. If you feel any discomfort, stop. You will probably need to modify each pose as your body changes.

✓ Avoid lying on your back after the first trimester; it can reduce blood circulation to the uterus.

✓ Avoid poses that stretch the muscles too much. You are more at risk for strains, pulls and other injuries right now because of the pregnancy hormone relaxin, which softens and relaxes joints and connective tissue.

✓ From the second trimester – when your centre of gravity starts to shift – do all standing poses with your heel against the wall or use a chair for support, to avoid losing your balance and risking injury to yourself or your baby. Here is the most comprehensive second trimester dos and don’ts for you to follow.

✓ While twisting, move from the shoulders and back, rather than the waist, to avoid putting pressure on your abdomen. Twist only as far as it feels comfortable – deep twists are not advisable in pregnancy. Here are three simple exercises that can boost blood circulation during pregnancy.

1. Palm tree

Imagine you are a palm tree swaying in the wind.

Benefit: This pose stretches and strengthens the torso

Stand upright, raise your arms overhead and interlock your fingers.

Now stretch slowly and gently to the right and then the left, imitating the swaying movement of a palm tree.

2. Modified triangle pose

Can you position your body in such a way that it forms three triangles?

Benefit: This pose regulates the digestive system and massages internal organs like the liver.

Stand with your feet wide apart and arms extended at shoulder level parallel to the floor.

Stretch your left hand overhead and bend down to the right side and touch your knee. Look up at your left hand.

Return to starting position and switch sides.

3. Modified forward bend

Reach forward with your hands, with a chair for support.

Benefit: This pose stretches the back and legs.

Stand tall in front of a chair.

Lift your arms and reach towards the chair; press your palms on the chair. Keep your back straight and bend from your hips. Hold.

Return to standing position.

4. Seated twist

Twist to the right and then to the left, to improve the mobility of the spine.

Benefit: This pose stretches the spine, improves digestion and relieves constipation.

Sit with your legs stretched out in front of you. Bend your right knee and take the right foot over the left knee.

Bring the left arm and elbow over the right knee. Keep your right hand behind you on the fl oor for support. Now twist your torso to the right and turn your head back.

Return to starting position and switch sides.

5. Cat-camel pose

 Imitate a cat and then a camel. Arch your spine like a cat and then lift it up like the hump of a camel.

Benefit: releases spinal stress

Get down on all fours on your mat. Place your hands directly below your shoulders. Now lift your tailbone up towards the ceiling so that your lower back is concave. As you do this your head will lift up naturally towards the ceiling.

Now round your back like the hump of a camel and roll your head towards your chest. Make the movements as fluid as possible.

6. Butterfly pose

Imitate a butterfly.

Benefit: Increases mobility of the hip joints and stretches the inner thigh.

Sit with your legs outstretched on the mat. Bend your knees and bring your feet in as close as possible, towards you. Bring the soles of your feet together.

Keep your spine straight and gently move your legs down and up, resembling the movement of a butterfly as it flaps its wings.

7. The modified corpse

You need to relax in order to feel rejuvenated.

Lie on your left side; place a pillow between your legs and below your head for support.

Close your eyes and relax your mind.

To make the poses more comfortable, use blankets, pillows, cushions and chairs for support if you need them. For instance, you can perform seated positions on a folded blanket. If maintaining an erect spine is difficult, lean against a wall for support. Also, breathing the correct way during pregnancy is vital, here are a few breathing exercises you can practise for better oxygen intake.

Follow these tips while performing the yoga asanas:

•             Yoga can be practised anywhere – indoors or outdoors. Just make sure it is a calm and quiet environment with adequate ventilation.

•             Yoga gear should be comfortable, convenient and simple. All you need is loose, comfortable clothing and a yoga mat, rug, blanket or carpet.

•             Hold each yoga pose for 10 to 60 seconds.

•             Set aside a fixed time for yoga.

•             If you have never tried yoga before, first learn the different poses under supervision. Start slowly and relax for 2 to 3 minutes after every asana if required.

•             Yoga can be performed once a week or every day. The duration can range from 5 minutes to 60 minutes per session.

•             Never force your body into a stretch or pose. Regular practice will make seemingly impossible poses more accessible.

•             If you feel any pain or nausea, stop and contact your doctor immediately.
