Some would say that you should eat it in moderation and watch for any signs of problems before your due date. If you’re at or past your due date, it might help you.
Dont take it without consulting wid a chinese doctor or ur RE. Even if u take little more than desired qty there is a chance of m/c which no body wants. It seems pineapple core is better for implantation thn the actual fruit. Also there is a different dose if u hv 3 day transfer and diff dose for a 5 day transfer. Also num of days u take in both cases is different. Dont do anything unknown acts straight from the internet.
Personally I would stay away from pineapple during pregnancy. According to my culture, women are advised not to eat pineapple during pregnancy.
I am sure many will disagree with me on this one, but I didn't even drink fruit juice with pineapple in it just to be on the safe side.
this is so interesting... I was also told to try eating pineapple during IVF to help implantation but never heard any of the bad stuff. Would like to know more about the core being better than the fruit.
