Why IVF failure can be so devastating

The fact that the cycle may fail is the major fear every IVF patient has to confront. An IVF failure can be a major personal devastation for many patients. This is because many infertile couples will treat the failure as a personal failure - when their IVF cycle fails , they blame themselves for the failure .

Many infertile have self-esteem issues , and think of themselves as being flawed, because their bodies don't work properly, which is why they have not been able to get pregnant in their own bedroom.

  2. I agree that we do carry a big emotional baggage, but do you think is it even possible to go through this process unattached and emotion free?

  3. I agree it's not easy - but, yes, it is possible ! As the Gita preaches - focus on your actions, and don't worry about the fruits. It's not easy to be emotionally detached when your heart hurts, but it's a goal worth striving for. These skills will help in coping with the other ups and downs life will try to trip you up with !
