What can’t I do while going through IVF?

IVF is a big deal, but there are some things you can’t do while you’re undergoing IVF treatment. What are they?

It’s highly recommended that when going through IVF, you refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol. Smoking and alcohol intake have been shown to negatively affect the quality of a woman’s eggs.

It’s also recommended that you check with your fertility specialist if you’re on any medication or taking any herbal or Chinese medicine as there is a risk the medication or supplements can interfere with the fertility drugs and jeopardise your IVF cycle.

As always, you’ll want to talk to your fertility expert to find out if anything you’re taking will be affected by your IVF plan.
