Managing Menstrual Disorders for Successful IVF

If you have been diagnosed with a menstrual disorder, it’s important to work with a fertility specialist who can help you manage the condition and optimize your chances of a successful IVF outcome. Depending on your specific disorder, management may include:

  • Hormonal therapy: This may involve taking medications to regulate your menstrual cycle, induce ovulation, or reduce heavy bleeding.
  • Lifestyle changes: Making changes to your diet and exercise routine can help manage certain menstrual disorders, such as PCOS.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove fibroids or correct other structural issues that are affecting fertility.
  • Embryo transfer timing: In some cases, your fertility specialist may recommend timing your IVF cycle to coincide with your natural menstrual cycle, when your hormonal levels are optimal for conception.
