IVF is a fertility treatment that involves a method by which conception is made attainable for infertile couples. In the course of IVF treatment, the eggs and the sperms are combined together in a petri dish in a laboratory for effectuating fertilization. The fertilization results in the formation of an embryo, which remains in the laboratory for another 4-5 days so that it can develop. Once the embryo reaches the blastocyst stage, it is implanted inside into the recipient’s uterus.
It is important for the embryo to effectively attach to the lining of the uterus in order to ensure the successful embryo implantation and the positive outcomes in the IVF treatment. It is a complex treatment process including a lot of steps such as egg retrieval, semen collection, fertilization, and embryo transfer. In between the treatment, various ultrasounds and other lab tests are done to monitor the quality of development of eggs and the effective implantation of the embryo.

Here are some tips to ensure successful embryo implantation.
Get enough rest
It is advisable to take enough rest after the embryo implantation but not necessary. There is no evidence to support the fact that bed rest will definitely aid in assuring better IVF implantation but somehow it is required before you undergo a pregnancy test after two weeks. Since IVF treatment is a complex procedure, it is crucial to take care of yourself once the treatment is complete. Get enough sleep, go for a walk, and do whatever makes your soul happy. Keeping a positive outlook during this time will help in ensuring positive results to some extent.
Abstain from intense exercising
While it is good to go for a walk but do not get too excited as vigorous exercising is not at all required at this stage of your fertility treatment. This is a delicate point of the treatment and your pelvic region expands due to the embryo transfer or other reasons. So intense physical activities and workout should be avoided in order to prevent uterine contractions. Also, the doctor may suggest you abstain from intercourse as there is a possibility of transfer of infection or it may cause problems in successful embryo implantation. However, depending upon your case, the doctor may advise you to have intercourse. It is better to consult your doctor before engaging in any kind of activity.
Adopt a balanced diet
There is no specific list of foods or diet for making certain effective embryo implantation, but the diet you should take during the embryo implantation phase is the same as the one you take during the IVF treatment or pregnancy provided it is a healthy, nutritious, and balanced diet. A diet filled with proteins, fibre, folic acid, and essential vitamins for reproductive health is needed for having a healthy baby. There are also certain habits you should avoid such as smoking and drinking due to their negative effects on the fertility and reproductive system of an individual.
Avoid hot water bath
A hot water bath increases the temperature of your body, which is somehow, is not healthy for embryo implantation. Avoid sitting in a tub or swimming for a while as this may cause infections or other issues in your body. You can always take a warm water bath to soothe your body. However, it is better to take suggestions from your doctor to find out whether it is okay to undergo a hot water bath.
Try PGD testing
In case you are over 40 years of age or more at the time of embryo implantation, PGD or Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis testing is advisable before the embryo transfer as it aids in finding any chromosomal abnormalities or defects in the embryo. On the other hand, if you have used your own eggs in the IVF treatment then PGD testing helps in determining any medical issues or chromosomal issues in the embryo. At last, do what your doctor tells before going for any type of testing
