Are you thinking about starting IVF? Here are some things you may want to know.
Every year, more than 50,000 cycles of IVF are performed in the UK. IVF may not be the first choice in how to create your family, but it can help. IVF can be all consuming. The appointments, the paperwork (so many consents), the daily injections. Many patients say it’s like having a second full time job. The hormones can make you irritable and add to your stress. It’s so important to have a support system – however you may choose. There’s no right or wrong. There’s no one size fits all. Everyone needs support in a different way and sometimes you may need to try a few things to find a good fit, to figure out what works for you.
How can you prepare?
One thing that is really important before going into an IVF cycle is to arm yourself with knowledge. Learning about IVF, knowing what can happen during a cycle and understanding your chances of success can help manage expectations. Going through IVF you may discover that there’s a difficult balance of medical staff reassuring you during your treatment and also trying to make you aware of the realistic outcome. It’s why I created the IVF e-course. To help educate, inform and prepare you for IVF. There’s an entire module on what could go wrong during treatment – and I don’t think that’s something that gets talked about enough.
