Preparation of the Endometrium: What to prepare and nourish?

There are various factors to prepare the endometrium to be proper for embryo transfer such as physical preparation and lifestyle. Selecting vitamins for nourishment is also important.


Here is a checklist for physical preparation and nourishment:

  1. Get a lot of rest. It is best before 4-5 pm
  2. Refrain from stress
  3. Refrain from alcohol, smoke, pollution and chemicals 
  4. Work out
  5. Eat 5 food groups: fresh, cooked and clean
  6. Refrain from food that can cause diarrhea or any sickness. If your health is declining, it will affect uterine quality.

For food, we would like to recommend food that contains lactobacillus such as fermented milk and yogurt making a proper condition of pelvic for embryo implantation.

For vitamins, it is recommended taking 5mg of folic acid/day or 1 tablet/day including other vitamins such as vitamin D for 1,000 – 2,000 IU and vitamin E for 200 – 400 IU per day. This will help with better embryo implantation.

To be sure, it is recommended consulting with the doctor before taking any vitamins.
