How IVF patients can reduce their anxiety and fears about IVF

An IVF cycle can be difficult to go through because of all the fear and anxiety which every IVF patient has.
The biggest worry is the unpredictability of the outcome - will the cycle will work or not ?
They are also burdened with many myths and misconceptions , based on secondhand information , or old wives' tales they have read about . They are worried about the risks of IVF and its complications such as the need for bedrest ; or that it's painful.
The best way to reduce this anxiety and fear is by making sure that patients spend some time in informing themselves about the medical details of the IVF process.
In a perfect world, there would be counselors who would educate patients , and doctors would spend as much time as the patient needed, to clear their doubts. However, that's not going to happen, and patients need to be proactive and figure out how to separate the truth from the myths for themselves.
The more they know, the more in control of their cycle will be.
In fact, they'll be able to look forward to what's happening , because they'll be able to anticipate and predict what the next steps are. Seeing the photos of your embryos can give you a high, if you are awaiting this major event !
This is why patients need to invest in Information Therapy, so they know what hurdles they need to overcome in their IVF cycle, to be able to get a baby. Being prepared can help them cross these with much less angst !
