Scheduled IVF treatment. Are vaccinations safe?

Hi - I m currently going through IVF treatment (expecting egg collection next week - all being well) however I also have some trips with work planned (month of May) for both India and China. I m wondering if it s okay to get some vaccinations now for those countries - or if better to wait until after IVF treatment? But then also to know whether any of the vaccines would be a risk to get if newly pregnant?

thank you for your query.
While undergoing IVF and early conception, most vaccinations are contraindicated.
It will be better to opine if you let me know specifically what vaccinations you plan to take.
I think it is a much better idea not to have any shots until you are done with your IVF and you know whether you are pregnant or not.
Also , in case you do conceive through IVF, travelling in the first trimester so far off also is not advisable.
I advise you to reconsider and discuss the issue at length with your IVF practitioner with the proper details.
take care
and Best of luck
