Thanks for your query. I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) You need to eat foods that are XXXXXXX in protein. For example : egg white, Chicken breast etc... The high protein foods will reduce complications associated with hyperstimulation.

2) This will not affect your embryo transfer chances. Embryos are transferred into uterus and hence ovary wont affect it. Do nt worry and stay relaxed.

3) Day 5 embryos are called blastocysts. Only if embryos are good quality , they will last till dday 5 and are better than day 3 transfer.

I hope I answered your queries.
