Knock, knock! Who’s there? Fruit. Fruit who? Fruit you need to know about to support your IVF journey!
Embarking on the journey of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a rollercoaster ride, filled with highs, lows, hope, and trepidation. From the buzzing streets of Delhi to the tech hubs of Gurgaon and the bustling city life of Noida, the story is the same for every IVF warrior. With each step meticulously planned, and every bit of advice earnestly taken, what you eat during this journey plays a pivotal role.
We’ve all heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but when it comes to IVF, not all fruits are your friends, especially after an embryo transfer. So, let’s peel back the layers of this juicy topic and reveal the 10 fruits you must avoid after an embryo transfer in IVF.
Fruits to Avoid: A Countdown
Why Avoid These Fruits After Embryo Transfer?
There’s no need to go bananas! These fruits, while usually beneficial, may pose some risks during the sensitive period post-embryo transfer.
Considered a symbol of welcome, pineapples could be a tad too ‘welcoming’ for embryos. Their high bromelain content might thin the blood, potentially causing unwanted effects in early pregnancy.
Unripe papaya can be a sticky wicket! It contains papain, a possible abortifacient, and hence, is best avoided.
Grapes, especially the black variety, contain resveratrol, which could potentially interfere with the implantation process.
High in sugar, bananas can lead to an unwanted spike in blood sugar, creating an unfavorable environment for implantation.
This thirst quencher can cause bloating and gas, leading to discomfort after an embryo transfer.
Dates, the sweet delicacies of the desert, might increase body heat, which isn’t ideal after an embryo transfer.
Mango, the king of fruits, can also heat up your body, potentially affecting the implantation process.
Kiwi is high in Vitamin C, which can act as a natural diuretic, leading to dehydration if not balanced with adequate water intake.
Peaches are known for their laxative properties, which might lead to discomfort post-embryo transfer.
Lemons have a high citrus content which may cause stomach acidity, leading to discomfort.
