Diagnosed with pityriasis, throat infection, due to start pre IVF injections. Guidance?

Hi, I'm due to start injections pre IVF and have just been diagnosed with pityriasis rosea.
I'm 41 yrs old and was successful first time with IVF 2 years ago. I feel quite run down at the moment following a throat infection. Should we postpone IVF for a month until the condition has cleared up? Is it likely to effect the possible success of IVF if I started meds now?

Thank you for your query.

Usually no medication is necessary for pityriasis rosea. You have not mentioned the medicines that you are having for throat infection. It is recommended to avoid medicines in the first trimester of pregnancy and hence, if you can avoid the medicines then proceed with IVF otherwise you can postpone it. Medicines will not have any effect on the success or failure of IVF.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you all the best.
