Sleep Well and Increase IVF Success

a blog by Marta Montenegro, MS, CSCS, SFN, NSCA-CPT, December 1, 2014

The couple that decides upon in vitro fertilization (IVF) to make their dreams of a family come true have so much to think about. But something important you may have overlooked throughout the process are your sleep patterns. You may already be among the statistics from the National Sleep Foundation in which 30% to 40% of adults report occasional insomnia or, even worse, be among the 10% to 15% of Americans that report having trouble sleeping all the time. Perhaps the “counting sheep” strategy to fall sleep has become a regular pattern due to stresses of fertility treatments. Whatever the reason you are tossing and turning, a recent study shows that you need to do something now to achieve at least seven hours of sleep a night if you want to increase the chances of a successful IVF outcome.
