    Is bed rest necessary after IVF?

    IVF stands for “in vitro fertilisation” and is one of several methods available for people with fertility problems to help them become pregnant. 

    During IVF treatment, an egg is removed from the women’s ovaries and is then fertilised in a laboratory. After fertilisation, the egg, known as an embryo, is then returned to the woman's body to grow and develop, eventually resulting in pregnancy.

    This procedure can be done using your eggs and your partner’s sperm, or eggs and sperm from a donor. [1]

    The Monster Called PMS - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

    Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects many women. Appearing about a week before the start of menstruation, it often accompanies the start of menstruation and can have physical and psychological manifestations. Women with premenstrual syndrome complain of lower abdominal pain, cramps, headaches or poor skin condition. Other symptoms include irritability, poor concentration, stress, fatigue and general depression. Although premenstrual syndrome is not classified as a disease and is often a source of a variety of indiscriminate comments, according to studies, almost 80% of women suffer from PMS. For some of them, it is so strong that it limits them in everyday life. What are its causes, symptoms and how it can be treated?

    Freezing eggs as a chance for the future

    Thanks to cryopreservation of eggs, many couples have a chance to preserve their fertility in the future. Almost a quarter of the European population suffers from infertility, and artificial insemination is often the only way to have a child. IVF treatment is physically and mentally demanding and egg collection is a relatively demanding process. Thanks to modern medical methods at IVF clinics, however, it is possible to collect more eggs and freeze them in case the couple decides to have more offspring and fails to conceive naturally. Cryopreservation is an opportunity to postpone motherhood and at the same time preserve healthy eggs.

    In the 16th week of pregnancy, the second trimester begins to gain full momentum. While two weeks ago, when the second trimester began, the pregnancy was not very noticeable on the woman, from the sixteenth week onwards, the time to change your wardrobe is slowly beginning. The baby has grown to about twelve centimetres and weighs about eighty grams, which could be compared to an avocado, for example. By this time, the genitals can also be distinguished. If the parents want to know the sex of the baby before birth and the baby is correctly recorded in the womb, the gynaecologist can use ultrasound to determine whether it will be a baby boy or girl.

    Foods that support male fertility

    Many couples want to start their own family and parenthood, but many are failing. Infertility has become an increasing problem in Europe in recent years. Poor lifestyle, stress, lack of exercise or increasing age of expectant parents are to blame. In many couples, infertility is caused by the quality or lack of sperm in a man. If the couple does not manage to conceive after a year of unprotected sexual intercourse, the possibility of assisted reproduction is offered at one of many IVF clinics. However, fertility in both men and women can be supported in many other ways, and one of them is the adjustment of diet and lifestyle in general.

Nevertheless, it is possible to take a number of steps that will make it easier for the baby to adapt from the safety of the mother's uterus to the new environment. It is recommended to start preparations in the first and second trimesters, because in the third trimester and especially just before the birth, future mothers need to rest a lot and the fathers to be available to them.

    Immunity development of the baby during pregnancy and after birth

    The immune system is crucial for humans because it helps protect the body from any harmful effects. It develops before birth and is consolidated all throughout life. However, most important is the first nine months, when the foetus is protected in the body of its mother, and the first three years of life. At this time, the most important substances against pathogens are being formed that could be harmful to the child. The body's defenses are strengthened, autotolerance, antigens and immune surveillance are formed. During pregnancy, the foetus receives immune substances from the mother's body, and after birth responds to environmental influences. What is important for the proper development of a baby's immune system?

    How to manage high-risk pregnancies.

    Whether a woman becomes pregnant naturally or through artificial insemination at an assisted reproduction clinic, in some cases, despite all the doctors' care, pregnancies may be risky. There can be several factors that cause complications in pregnancy and endanger the foetus and mother. These are most often health problems, but stress or a bad lifestyle can also play a role. In many cases, gynaecologists will order measures only preventively, but in more serious cases, a bed regimen may be implemented at home or in hospital.

Today, ivf experts agree that if a woman does not have a high risk pregnancy or has no other problems, an adequate level of exercise is desirable. But it always depends on how physically active the woman was before pregnancy. However, for healthy women, exercise during pregnancy is beneficial both physically and mentally. Properly chosen exercise will help relieve back and hip pain, reduce the risk of varicose veins, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure and relieve stress. Last but not least, exercise for pregnant women is also the best preparation for childbirth and the subsequent demanding period with a newborn baby.

    Embryo care at the reproductive clinic

    During a single cycle of in vitro fertilisation, a number of eggs are collected and subsequently fertilised with sperm. If fertilisation is successful, doctors have at their disposal several usable embryos that can be used for transfer. Currently, only one embryo is normally used in order to avoid multiple pregnancies. So what happens to the other embryos and how are they looked after?

    Cancer. A diagnosis that no-one wants to hear in their life. Unfortunately, carcinogens are very common and affect a large section of the population.

    The three most common menstrual disorders

    A regular menstrual cycle is a reflection of every woman’s health. The idea that menstruation is something that a woman should be ashamed of, or worse, hate, should no longer apply. Yes, menstruation and certain parts of the cycle may not always be pleasant, but if a woman understands why she feels the way does at a certain phase of the cycle, she can get the most out of each phase. Unfortunately, as a result of today's hectic times and stress, it is much more common for a woman's body to be so exhausted that it interferes with the cycle itself. Here are the three most common disorders that women and girls may encounter.

    Sperm Donors are not Dads - Advice on How to Select Sperm for IVF

    When you first think about using donated sperm to conceive a child, you might think of it as picking out a father. While sifting through candidates, thinking of the donor as strictly a donor from the get-go will help you make a clearer choice and prevent future misunderstandings. Also ask yourself some guiding questions and set parameters to help narrow down your options because cryobanks keep thousands of anonymous and non-anonymous donors at hand, and having thousands of options can overwhelm even those most determined.

    The Embryo Transfer Process from Start to Finish

    Due to the need to produce multiple oocytes at once and synchronize the natural cycles of donor and recipient, fertility treatment may commence with up to a month-long round of contraception, customarily in the form of oral birth control pills (BCP). This is an important resting period for the ovaries prior to initiating daily injections of fertility drugs, such as Lupron, Nafarelin, Buserelin or Synarel.[1]

    Facts About Fertility that May Surprise You

    Although there is still no absolute guarantee of pregnancy through IVF, the chance of success through this fertility treatment is rising as more is known about fertility and the process. In the earlier days of IVF, only 12% of patients were able to get pregnant. Now, almost 60% of patients under 35 succeed in getting pregnant when they undergo IVF correctly. IVF also used to result in a worrying number of multiple births, i.e. twins and triplets. This raises the chance of pregnancy complications and problems during birth. That number has now shot down from 30% of cases to 5%.

    What is the Egg Donation Process?

    Egg donation is a process whereby a fertile woman donates an egg, or oocyte, to another woman to allow her to conceive. The egg or eggs are removed from the donor, fertilised with donated sperm in a laboratory and the resultant embryo implanted in the female recipient’s uterus using a procedure such as IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation). Egg donation is often sought by women who want to get pregnant but whose own eggs are unusable for various reasons.

    If you’re trying to conceive, it’s good to be proactive in your efforts to conceive. Sometimes the artificial insemination process has to be supported with all possible means. One of these is acupuncture, which strengthens the immunity, improves blood flow, regulates the hormones, and reduces stress, which can have a highly negative impact on women when they are preparing for artificial insemination.

    IVF is an immense challenge. Or is it?

    At first glance, IVF, or in vitro fertilisation, doesn’t seem a complicated process; eggs are removed from the body (or from the donor), fertilised in the laboratory, then returned to the uterus, which in the majority of cases completes the process. So what’s so demanding about that? The number of horror stories on online forums has terrified many people and discouraged them from seeking treatment, describing the process as very exhausting, particularly for women. Even though it is true that IVF is, in a sense, an immense challenge, one has to look at it from several points of view and find out what can be expected from this much-discussed method.
