    Default Physical work during IVF

    Hi All...brand new to the forum and first time posting. My husband and I have our first IVF appt on Monday. I currently work for myself as a domestic cleaner. I'm just wondering if anyone has any insight on how I'll go with a physical job during IVF? TIA

    Hi, and welcome!

    I did 4 rounds of IVF whilst working on a dairy farm with my husband. I took a day off for each EPU and transfer but otherwise kept working. I just made sure I took regular drink breaks and ate regularly, and went to bed early so as to get enough sleep. My cycles all fell flat on their faces but that was due to my crappy 42 year old eggs, not due to the workload!

    Our final cycle was with an egg donor. I had moved off the farm by then and was working from home doing bookkeeping. I did not change my day to day life at all, doing the vaccuuming, mopping, laundry etc every day. The only thing I avoided was heavy lifting - just in case.

    I personally would be more concerned about the chemicals you are using than the physical aspect.
