I ate the core chopped up in tiny bits for my last ivf and I got a bfn.

I didn't eat it for this ivf cycle and I got my BFP.

However, I have an egg quality issue and used donor eggs this time so I am sure that played a huge factor in my outcome.

I ate the pineapple core right 2 days after transfer until 6 days after. And my acupunturist told me to have a nice big juicy steak the evening of transfer. Something about the protein.... worked for me :)

No pineapple for me - and we got twins! Granted we transferred four embryos... maybe it is for the best that I did not eat any... :)

Good luck and babydust!
