We usually associate summer with rest, fun and the seaside. For couples in need of assisted reproduction, summer can acquire a new meaning, namely one of the most suitable moments for in vitro fertilization.
Numerous studies have shown that the changes that occur in a woman’s body during summer increase fertility and therefore make pregnancy (naturally or through ART) easier.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SUMMER?
Not surprisingly, some physiological processes happen slightly differently depending on the season. The length of the day and the strength of the sun’s rays in the summer help in the synthesis of vitamin D, which we need not only for bone metabolism and a strong immune system, but also is associated with higher success of in vitro procedures.
Changes in our mood during summer should not be underestimated. Usually then we feel happier and less likely to get depressed. As it is well known, not only physical health but also a proper state of mind is important when trying to conceive.
The balance between your job and frequent visits to the doctor related to in vitro fertilization can be challenging. In this context, the holiday season has a special advantage – your summer vacation could transform into the perfect time for you to start an in vitro cycle. Last but not least, the extra time spent with your partner or loved ones will bring you the support you need in this difficult period of your life.
Let’s not forget that one of the most important factors for the success of in vitro fertilization is the age of the woman — the best results are achieved in patients who are up to 35 years old. We advise you not to postpone your in vitro procedure in case it does not coincide with the summer season.
