No that is incorrect, the one thing that does not count is caffeinated drinks as caffeine is a diuretic meaning it prevents you from absorbing water and makes you need to pee more.

However the body does not treat water or food any differently your body will extract water from everything you eat or drink, there is even water in something you may consider dry such as a slice of bread.

You are encouraged to drink lots of water after IVF for a number of reasons including that it will help reduce the constipation associated with progesterone which by the way eating liquorice allsorts is a good tasty way to help alleviate that also as liquorice is a mild laxative. Also a lot of fluid will be used to refill the follicles that have been drained but mainly the large amount is simply to account for people who don't normally drink enough to be properly hydrated and only drink caffeinated drinks, the large amount is to counter this kind of situation. The clinics have to err on the side of caution and account for foolish people as well as the average person.

Drinking Water

:hi:

I am cuurently on day 7 of my Suprecur Buserelin injections (DR). I havent really been drinking much fluid at all but is it that important during DR or when I start stimms?

Hope you have some advice. I am rubbish at drinking as never really get thirsty so dont think to drink

Thanks

Hi hon! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but yes, it is very important. It will help prevent any headaches that you may get in the future whilst DR. When stimming and after EC it will help prevent OHSS. I was told to drink at least 2L a day. Can you carry around a small bottle and takes sips throughout the day? :xxx3:

hi hun
Yeah i just second really exactly what rachel has already said. with DRing water helps stop the headaches as they do really dehydrate you!!!! and when stimming helps reduce the risk of OHSS!! i know that one from experience

Hi hun,

I've always been really rubbish at drinking too - but it really is important as you're going through treatment. Little and often is the key, particularly towards the end of stimms when you could feel quite bloated.

Remember foods also contain fluids too so breakfast cereals with milk, lots of juicy fruits and veg will all count towards that fluid intake. Any uncaffeinated drinks will do so you don't have to sit and force plain water down yourself if it's something that will be harder for you. Fresh fruit juices, low-sugar squash, milk, hot-choc, horlicks, herbal teas etc etc are all good so try and vary them throughout the day so it doesn't feel like such a chore!

Lots of luck for your treatment hun, I hope 2010 brings your BFP :xxx3:

wow hadn't realised that i wasn't drinking enough water throughout the day... :O i've cut out caffeine in tea and coffee and just about managed to cut out all fizzy but only really managing about 2 pints of water a day... mental note taken-will have to make more of an effort. Glad to see i can put squash in the water, i think that's why i was struggling so much but hopefully apple and blackcurrant water will help me get those extra pints into me xfingers

lotsa babydust wished to everyone

The confusion may have arisen because a typical adult's energy requirements call for two to three litres of fluid – but it doesn't all have to be in the form of glasses of water. All foods and non-alcoholic drinks count toward the goal.

For example:

•broccoli is about 90 per cent water
•bread is about 35 per cent water
•meat, fish and poultry contain 50 to 60 per cent water

Hi Monkeymagic,

Each clinic is different on their guidelines but the clinic I was at said a litre of water a day and a litre of milk, the litre of water was to help with OHSS and the litre of milk, as well as to increase my liquid intake, was also to increase my protein intake as eggs are mostly proteins so they reasoned that you need lots to make gooduns, it's important to space your liquid intake out over the day don't drink it all at once. Start increasing your intake now so that you are up to the full quota of about 2 litres by the time you start stims.

Good luck for this cycle.
