  • For IVF cycle: consume equal amounts over five days, beginning on the day of your embryo transfer.

    IUI cycle: consume equal amounts over five days, beginning on the day of your IUI.

    Timed intercourse cycle: consume equal amounts 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 reccommended days above can actually affect your vaginal and cervical mucus PH, making it more acidic.

  • I dont know about conceiving, I have only ever known that it improves the taste for oral sex, it is true of any sweet fruit if you eat it in large enough amounts.

  • 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.
