Vitamin D - Can It Increase Your Chance of IVF Success!

Vitamin D - Can It Increase Your Chance of IVF Success!

Vitamin D is present in the skin and is considered to be a steroid hormone that is found in fortified foods and sun exposure. For years, it has been associated with bone health, but recent studies have revealed that it plays a major hand in mammal fertility as well. Research conducted by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism has shown that Vitamin D plays a pivotal role in IVF procedures. It not only helps to produce good quality embryos, but also increases the success rate of implantation dramatically.

Study 1: Researchers followed 154 women who were vitamin D deficient and 181 women who had sufficient levels of vitamin D in their blood. The women who had sufficient vitamin D were nearly twice as likely to conceive through their IVF cycle as their deficient counterparts. Women who had vitamin D levels of at least 20 ng/ml in their blood were considered to have sufficient levels of the hormone. Levels of 30 ng/ml are recommended for general health.

Could Vitamin D also contribute to IVF success?

While the role of vitamin D infertility is less certain, an Italian study published in 2014 found that women undergoing IVF treatment with sufficient levels of vitamin D were more likely to produce high quality embryos, and nearly twice as likely to become pregnant. Although the researchers stated further studies were needed, the results indicated that low levels of vitamin D could contribute to infertility. 

More recently, 11,500 women were evaluated in a European study examining the effect of the environment (temperature, rain and sunshine) on the outcomes of IVF treatment. The study found the birth rate improved for women exposed to more sunshine the month before the start of their IVF cycle, while the egg was maturing.

For the men, a link between vitamin D and sperm movement and function has also been identified.

What role does vitamin D play in pregnancy?

Vitamin D plays an important role in ensuring that the body has enough amount of calcium to conceive. For women who are pregnant or are breastfeeding, calcium ensures that the baby’s immune system and bones are strongly formed. Deficiency of vitamin D can lead to gestational diabetes in pregnant women.

Sources of vitamin D: Although the sun is the best source of vitamin D in an individual, it is recommended not to rely on it totally. Overexposure to sun rays can lead to skin cancer. Some food items from where the requisite amount of vitamin D can be obtained include eggs, dairy products, fatty fish etc. People who are critically deficient in vitamin D can go for vitamin D supplements.

Other lifestyle improvements for your fertility

While the importance of vitamin D in pregnancy and its link to IVF outcomes certainly gives couples something to think about, don’t overlook the well-established health and lifestyle improvements you can make to boost your natural fertility including quitting smoking, consuming alcohol in moderation, and maintaining a healthy weight. 

If you are undergoing fertility treatment, your fertility specialist will likely have already organised a vitamin D blood test. For all other women trying to conceive, consult your IVF specialist for more information.

No its not so, sometimes it may take time in conceiving after oral contraceptives. But has no concern with the growth of the baby, it may be cause less hormonal support during pregnancy. So consult gyne. Once she get pregnant and take medicine for supporting pregnancy.

Thanks for the query. Irregular periods can be due to hormonal disbalance or even stress. Before going for complete hormonal analysis you can go for a whole abdomen sonography to rule out ovarian cyst. Review with reports to start with homoeopathic treatment.

5 herbal tips for controlling abdominal pain really fast


Abdominal pain or stomach ache could occur any time due to various reasons. The point is we should remain ever ready to control abdominal pain. If we know how to control abdominal pain we could also offer this help to our colleagues as well who are in great pain as a remedial measure. In any case we would have to take the patient to the doctor if we are unable to pacify the patient. Some of the major causes of abdominal pain are kidney stones, inflammation of gallbladder, hernia, food poisoning, ulcers and gastric problems. However, there is no point to dishearten. Here a few remedies which can help you control abdominal pain, till the actual assistance arrives:
If you think that you took a heavy food before the abdominal pain has started it would be a great idea to drink plain soda water. It would provide great relief within no time.

1. Mix 1tsp of mint juice, lime juice and ginger juice. Add a pinch of black salt take this mixture with water you would get instant relief from abdominal pain.

2. Pomegranates can also help treat stomach ache. In a ball of pomegranate add some salt and black salt. Chew this seeds slowly. You would get instant relief from abdominal pain.

3. You can also try this method if you think your abdominal pain has not got relief. In a cup of water add 20 grams of aniseeds. Keep this for overnight and strain the mixture next morning. As soon as you drink it you would get instant relief.

4. After taking fenugreek seeds make a paste of it. Add this paste to a bowl of curd. By this way you would get quick relief from abdominal pain.

Since two months I'm having short periods. Before they'd last around 3 days. Now 1n half days. I'm pretty much worried. I had unprotected sex (he didn't ejaculate in me) two months back I used to take I pills but I stopped taking pills. Now I'm having short periods. Last month 11th I had bleeding lasted upto 1half day. Now 6th June lasted again a day. I don't particularly have any symptoms. But could I be pregnant?

Hi Nafisa. Its unlikely to be pregnant if you are having regular periods, nevertheless short ones. It would be a good idea to get an ultrasound done and see if there is some obvious reason for it. In most cases such as yours its usually due to hormonal imbalance. And I pill are known to severely hamper the hormonal balance and cause abnormal periods for months afterwards. So i would recommend to avoid their use as much as possible.

For the result to be positive the" T" line colour should be equal or greater than the "C" line colour. Faint line in T do not indicate a positive ovulation test. Early morning sample will not help. Take sample during the daytime.

I am 28 years old female. I am a married woman. This is our third year after marriage and we have a 7 months old daughter. We both love each other but still we are fighting for some things and are not living happy. I am a working woman so I am staying away from my husband. I live with my parents. He works in other place and so he lives alone. My mother in law stays in other place. I have been sending my salary to my mother in law soon after getting married. She takes care of everything and my husband do not involve in any financial matter. I have been asking him to start savings for our future but all went in vein. Now we have a daughter and we have to take care of her future and so I asked hm to save one salary for our baby and use other salary for household expenses. My MIL is staying in our own house and there is no need for paying rent and so the expenses would me maximum of 15000. So I asked him to use his salary for expenses and I will save my salary for baby. I will just keep 10000 for my and baby expenses. But still he is asking to send 20000 for my mother in law. I can save only 20000 for baby. I am not sure for how long will I work. So I want to save something before I quit my job. So we are getting argued every time. I don't know why he is not understanding me. If there is a real requirement I don't have any problem in sending money. And we don't have savings since our marriage though I sent my salary every month. So I am very much worried about savings. As I am staying away from my husband and working I am missing my life with him. So at least I should feel happy if there are savings for our baby. Is my thinking process is wrong?

Three years is very short time in marriage and in those 3 years also you stayed separately from husband and in that you had a pregnancy as well. Think about the lack of connectivity and bonding in relationship. Also it shows poor intimate relationships because you stay away from husband and on top of that there is confusion about financial matters which involves your mother-in-law as well. Now when there is lack of bonding in marriage, confusion bounds to happen. To begin with, first of all have an open interaction with husband without blaming each other. Then Find a common ground of quality personal relationship between both of you. If you are unable to do it own your own then you need to connect with a Marriage and Relationship expert to open your heart out and to find guidance & support. Later your husband may also be involved in interaction with expert. Please Beware and avoid involving any close relative or parents in this interaction because close relative from any-side will further complicate the matter because they may take sides. This is crisis situation because you appear frustrated. So move on quickly if you are looking for quality relationship with husband. You may contact me as well for interaction either in person or online via this website. All the best, Take care.

White discharge is not normal. This condition is called leukorrhea. Cramps in your legs at the time of menses is certainly due to leukorrhea. Start taking pushyanug chooran 1tsf twice daily. It is an ayurvedic med without any side effect. Never ever take any allopathic med for leukorrhea. For further assistance you can concern me privately.
