Pineapple as Aid to Implantation


Pineapple has been advocated as a simple effective aid to embryo implantation; yes pineapple! This is especially good news as it is widely available. When one considers the emotional and financial cost of fertility treatment, especially IVF, anything at all - well, almost anything that has the potential to make a treatment cycle succeed is always welcome.


Quite a number of women on fertility boards online seem to swear by it and there is certainly no harm in trying. There are indications that the bromelain in pineapple, which is a nutrient that it contains in higher concentration than pretty much every other food, is an anti-inflammatory and seems also to increase cervical mucus. The increase in cervical mucus can make the uterus more "sticky," which can lead to increased rates of implantation. The most bromelain in the pineapple is found near the core, so many acupuncturists and natural therapists recommend eating a pineapple slice core.



HOW TO USE


For IVF [in vitro fertilization] cycle: one pineapple, divided into 5 portions - consume one portion each day, over five days, beginning on the day of your embryo transfer.


IUI [intra-uterine insemination] cycle: one pineapple, divided into 5 portions - consume one portion each day, over five days, beginning on the day of your IUI.


Timed intercourse cycle: one pineapple, divided into 5 portions - consume one portion each day, over five days, beginning on the day after ovulation.

Note: Be careful not to start consuming pineapple too early in the cycle. Beginning to consume pineapple BEFORE the recommended days above can actually affect your vaginal and cervical mucus PH, making it more acidic.

    1. Hi I have a question. Are you suppose to eat the core alone with the pineapples?

  3. So do you eat 1/5 of the entire pineapple or 1/5 of the core only?

  5. It doesn't really matter how you eat it as long as you get the core. I eat a whole slice (including the core) every day for five days. The only reason I eat the meat as well is because it tastes good and it's a lot easier to choke down the core with some of the pineapple meat. I cut a slice and then cut my slices into triangles and eat it in a bowl :-)

  6. The core is delicious when prepared in a skillet just a few min each side. They say during the 2ww you should be consuming everything at room temp or warmer, keeping your uterus cozy. I never felt like waiting for the pineapple slice to get to room temp early in the morning so I just heated it up in a skillet (alone, no oil, no butter) just long enough to get it warm all the way thru, not hot. The core softens slightly and is very easy to consume along with the meat. Hope this helps.
