I ate pineapple for my IVF cycle and got a BFP. I never ate the core though. I have since read pineapple could only scientifically help with pregnancy if you ate about 10 whole pineapples, and concentrated juice does nothing b/c the good enzymes are stripped in juice. I also read not to eat pineapple after your 2nd trimester b/c it could induce labor, but honestly I craved pineapple my whole pregnancy and my son was not early he was born at 39 wks 6 days!

I did not eat it either time. Made me nervous to eat it because I read it can cause uterine contractions if you eat too much of it.

I didn't get a solid BFP on IVF so I didn't answer the poll, but I do want to make a note that the reason why pineapple is being recommended in the first place is because of the bromelain which is found mostly in the core.

If you want to get the benefits of pineapple without risking eating too much, eating the right parts, etc. look into the supplement called Wobenzym. It contains bromelain and helps mute any inflammation responses that may occur with implantation.

Best wishes to you all!
