IVF (IN VITRO FERTILIZATION) is a process of fertilization in which an egg is combined with sperm outside the body. The first successful birth of a child with the help of IVF occurred in 1978 but still, no one wants to go through it. It is a very emotional and isolating process. People going through this process must handle it positively. There are some ways to do so:-
You should always be positive about the things happening in your life. If you are thinking about adoption throughout the day it will make you feel down. Adoption is great for many families but trying your best to conceive and feeling that happiness is beyond anything else in this world.
Find good communities
It is very helpful to connect with others who are in the same boat as you. Social media is also a good source nowadays you can explore each and everything sitting at your home. You just need to find people who can understand you and have correct information about IVF.
Spending good time
Medical procedures and appointment can make you very stressed during these months. You can just have fun by going on small road trips accompanied by your soul-mate or friends. It can be a wonderful experience spending time with your loved ones.
Take one day at a time
You always need to be positive and spend each day. There is anxiety about whether it will work or not and get surrounded by a lot of questions by your own-self but the reality is that it is all out of your control. The best thing to do is focus on taking care of yourself and enjoying.
Have a realistic expectation
Maybe you become pregnant with the first cycle of IVF which would be great, but even if you don’t conceive for the first time around, it doesn’t mean there is anything “wrong”. It is still highly likely that you will become pregnant with the next IVF cycle. Some of the women can take a little longer to conceive in IVF because of many reasons.
