Why 90 Days Matters to Prep for IVF Success: A Deep Dive Guide

Embarking on the journey of in vitro fertilization (IVF) can be both exciting and daunting.

With so many factors influencing the success of IVF, proper preparation is crucial. This comprehensive guide explores the importance of taking 90 days to prepare for IVF, backed by scientific evidence and expert recommendations.

We will also introduce how Conceivable's innovative Kirsten AI can support you through this critical period, ensuring you are in the best possible shape for a successful IVF cycle.

Why 90 Days? The 90-day preparation period is not arbitrary. It aligns with the natural cycle of egg and sperm development.

Both eggs and sperm take approximately three months to mature, meaning the lifestyle choices you make today will impact the quality of the eggs and sperm released three months from now.

This period allows for significant improvements in overall health, hormone balance, and reproductive function. The Science Behind the 90-Day Preparation Egg and Sperm Development Eggs and sperm are influenced by various factors, including diet, exercise, sleep, and stress levels.

During the 90-day preparation period, these factors can be optimized to enhance the quality of both eggs and sperm. For example, studies have shown that a diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals can improve egg quality and sperm motility[1][3].

Hormonal Balance Hormonal balance is crucial for successful conception. The 90-day period allows time to address any hormonal imbalances through diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes. For instance, taking CoQ10 supplements has been shown to improve egg health and fertilization rates[1].

Steps to Prepare for IVF

1. Nutrition A balanced, nutrient-rich diet is the foundation of fertility health. Here are some dietary recommendations: - Antioxidants: Foods rich in antioxidants, such as berries, nuts, and leafy greens, help protect eggs and sperm from oxidative stress. - Vitamins and Minerals: Ensure adequate intake of vitamins C, D, and E, as well as folic acid and zinc, which are essential for reproductive health. - Healthy Fats: Incorporate healthy fats from sources like avocados, nuts, and olive oil to support hormone production. Plant-Based Proteins: To reduce the risk of ovulatory infertility, replace some animal proteins with plant-based options like beans, lentils, and tofu [1].

2. Exercise Regular, moderate exercise can improve fertility by managing weight, reducing stress, and enhancing insulin sensitivity. Activities like walking, yoga, and swimming are excellent choices. However, avoid intense overexercising, which can have the opposite effect[3].

3. Sleep Quality sleep is vital for hormonal balance and overall health. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night and establish a relaxing bedtime routine. Poor sleep quality has been linked to lower levels of fertility hormones and higher levels of stress hormones[3].

4. Stress Management Chronic stress can negatively impact fertility. Incorporate stress-reducing activities into your daily routine, such as meditation, journaling, or spending time in nature. Regular acupuncture sessions can also help moderate stress hormones and improve reproductive health[6].

5. Avoid Harmful Substances - Smoking: Smoking can significantly reduce fertility rates and affect egg and sperm quality. Quitting smoking is one of the most important steps you can take[3]. - Alcohol: Limit alcohol consumption, as it can disrupt reproductive health and lower the chances of a successful IVF cycle[3]. - Caffeine: Reduce caffeine intake to no more than 200mg per day, as high caffeine consumption has been linked to reduced fertility and increased miscarriage risk[3].

6. Recommended Supplements for IVF Preparation: Backed by Clinical Data

Preparing for IVF involves optimizing your body’s health to improve the chances of a successful pregnancy.

Conceivable offers a range of supplements that are scientifically backed to support fertility and overall reproductive health.

Here’s a detailed look at some of these supplements and the clinical data supporting their use:

Clinical Data: - Folate: Studies have shown that bioactive folate (L-5MTHF) is more effective than synthetic folic acid in reducing the risk of neural tube defects and supporting overall fetal development[6]. - Iodine: Essential for thyroid function, which is crucial for fetal brain development. Adequate iodine intake has been linked to improved cognitive outcomes in children[6].

Another study found that myo-inositol supplementation reduced the required dose of gonadotropins in IVF cycles, improving ovarian response and fertilization rates[12].

3. BioAvail Vitamin E Key Benefits:

- Antioxidant Properties: Protects cells from oxidative stress, which can damage eggs and sperm.

Another study showed that CoQ10 improved mitochondrial function in oocytes, enhancing their quality and developmental potential[18].

5. Premium Omega w/ DHA Key Benefits:

- Brain and Eye Development: Supports fetal brain and eye development.

- Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Reduces inflammation, which can improve overall reproductive health.
