How To Boost Your Chances of Pregnancy While Doing an IUI

If you are looking for ways to help improve your chances of success while undergoing western fertility treatments you're not alone. Most studies focus on how to improve IVF (in vitro fertilization) cycles but little is mentioned on how to improve IUI cycles. Although there may be a lack of available information there are things which you can do to help boost your chances of a healthy pregnancy during an IUI cycle.  

Tips for a Smooth Embryo Transfer Day

For anyone undergoing IVF, embryo transfer day can be an anxious one - especially if you have never done it before and don’t quite know what to expect.

Here are a few of my favorite ways you can do both at the same time with only 1 change.  

Can stress impact your menstrual cycle?

Understandably, stress may have been a little high over the last few weeks. If you’ve noticed a change to your menstrual cycle - longer cycle, more PMS, acne, etc., this is not too surprising because stress can have a direct impact on your reproductive hormones.

Stress & Your Cycle
