How To Help IVF Work Better

If you are planning IVF, you will naturally want to do everything possible to improve the chances of a successful outcome. If you would like to know how to help IVF work better, there are a number of positive steps you can take. IVF requires a huge investment both in financial and emotional terms and you should do everything possible to help the process.

Dietary Changes

One of the simplest steps you can both take is to improve your diet. For conception to occur, it is important that sperm is healthy and that the woman’s body is fit for implantation. Eating a poor diet can have a negative effect on the reproductive health of both parties. You should aim to eat organic foods wherever possible and try to stay away from sugar, refined carbohydrates and trans-fats. You should include small quantities of lean meats or other low fat proteins. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouting beans and wholegrains. To help IVF work better, your doctor might also recommend a pre-natal supplement for both you and your partner. Keeping hydrated is also very important for both healthy sperm and the development of healthy eggs so drinking 2 liters of filtered water each day is also recommended.

Stress Management

If you are wanting to know how to help IVF work better, one of the “invisible” detractors from implantation success is stress. It is well-known that high stress levels can affect hormonal balance and interfere with egg production. If you lead a busy life, managing stress can be difficult. However, it is vital that you take this seriously and pinpoint the areas of your life which are stressful and try to take positive steps to alleviate this by thinking about what helps you relax, be it reading, having a massage or simply going out with your partner. Not only can relaxation help you become more fertile, but you will feel better about yourself at what is a difficult time.


Think “gentle” rather than “strenuous”. Exercising to excess can have a detrimental effect on fertility in general. Suitable forms are walking, tai-chi or yoga. The right kind of exercise can improve blood flow to the reproductive organs which can improve fertility.

Alternative Therapies

Some alternative therapies can help IVF work better. For example, acupuncture can help to improve the supply of blood to the uterus, which, in turn, improves the quality of the lining. It can also increase the quantity of eggs. Acupuncture is believed to counteract the side effects of Lupron.

If you would like further comprehensive information on how to help IVF work better, you might like to consider taking a look at the program, The Full Embrace.

Specifically designed to teach you exactly what to do before in vitro fertilization, this program will help dramatically improve your chances of becoming pregnant with just one cycle, using techniques which are scientifically proven to work.

Actual iD Joins ADP Marketplace to Offer Cloud-based Time & Attendance to Help Companies Simplify Time Tracking and Improve Payroll Processes

TORONTO, ON (PRWEB) June 18, 2015

Actual iD today announced the availability of its cloud-based time and attendance application on ADP® Marketplace to help companies simplify time tracking, absence management and improve the efficiency of payroll processes.

Cloud-based time and attendance from Actual iD joins an ever-growing lineup of critical HCM and business applications that enable employers to optimize decision-making by seamlessly integrating workforce data across their company through secure ADP application programming interfaces (APIs).

“One in six businesses uses ADP for payroll service. We are fortunate to be able to partner with an organization of this stature. Together ADP and Actual iD are providing a simpler, more comprehensive HCM solution offered to a broad spectrum of ADP customers,” said David Sanderson, Actual iD Executive Vice-President. “Our cloud-based time and attendance application is truly a complimentary technology to ADP’s payroll solutions. With Actual iD, ADP customers will be able to more efficiently and accurately track employee work time, absences and easily transfer this data to payroll, eliminating any errors common with manual data entry or manual transfers from one system to the other.”

Actual iD’s cloud-based application for time and attendance includes fingerscan time clocks which eliminates the potential for time theft or buddy punching – resulting in immediate payroll cost reductions over and above efficiency gains in the payroll process. Actual iD works with a business’ unique requirements for scheduling, managing overtime, dealing with exceptions and providing alerts through real-time visibility of staff. Use it to track busy service departments, manufacturing floors, reception, administration, sales, and manage employees in a single building or across multiple locations in a business. The application goes beyond time and attendance management to include HR functionality to effectively manage vacations and sick time as well as compliance with state or provincial labor laws for issues like mandatory breaks and overtime that vary regionally.

ADP Marketplace is a new cloud-based app store designed to help employers dynamically manage an ecosystem of enterprise applications from ADP and world-class partners. This enables companies of all sizes to extend the value of their workforce solutions seamlessly across their entire organizations via a secure, single-sign-on process.

According to the ADP Research Institute®, the typical large company operates more than 31 separate HR applications and 33 payroll systems*. Many HR systems currently lack the ability to share workforce data with each other – and other core business systems. Today’s constantly evolving business environment requires a digital enterprise application shopping experience and seamless data integration capabilities across solutions to drive meaningful business productivity.

“Many companies struggle to integrate core HCM and business applications. ADP Marketplace empowers employers to overcome that challenge so they can focus on boosting their business agility and their employees’ success,” said Don Weinstein, Senior Vice President, Product Management, ADP. “Actual iD’s clients can access pre-integrated workforce data in real-time through one intuitive platform while tapping into a growing ecosystem of trusted HCM apps to meet their evolving business needs.”

ADP Marketplace continues to add new HCM applications to meet the business community’s current and future needs. To learn more about ADP Marketplace, visit marketplace.adp.com. To access Actual iD on the ADP Marketplace, visit https://marketplace.adp.com/apps/27885#!overview.
