I have been TTC for over 5 years but have never tried pineapple core before. We are waiting to start IVF medication, as I have blocked tubes. My tubes are not completely blocked, so there is a very small chance of conception. This is bit of a last hurrah before IVF begins 🙂
Here are the facts:
Pineapple core helps with Implantation of the embryo.Pineapple core has what is called bromelain that will help with implantation.
Using Pineapple to Assist Implantation: Pineapple contains bromelain. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that breaks up proteins that inhibit embryo implantation. Consuming a whole pineapple (focusing on the core as it has the highest concentration of Bromelain) during a fertility cycle can be beneficial.
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.
Step by step starting on 1dpo today.
Cut the top and bottom from the pineapple, and put into compost.
Remove the outer skin of the pineapple
Remove the flesh and save for something else yummy!
Chop the core into 5 portions as equally as possible
Eat the first portion and place the remainder in the fridge in a sealed container.
Eat one piece per day over the next 4 days!
