For some women out there, the journey of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) can be stressful and they may experience difficulties in managing their day-to-day life and IVF at the same time. Some women may feel emotionally and physically drained, but there are ways that you can adopt to avoid stress and other similar circumstances that can make a difference in the IVF journey and its outcome as well.
In this post, we have listed down a couple of self-care tips that you should incorporate during your IVF journey. So, without wasting any time, let us have a look at them in brief:
1 – Plan time to rest
Like we say, IVF is a journey and it includes various steps, such as stimulation of eggs, retrieval of eggs, transfer of eggs, and so on. After each step of IVF, you should give yourself some rest, at least for a few days, to recover. A few days of rest will recharge you physically and mentally for the next step of IVF.
2 – Take up yoga or meditation:
Yoga and meditation can be a great way to bust your stress. You do not have to join a professional class or something for the same. Simply, take out some time out of your schedule and practice simple yoga, meditation, and also stretch your muscle. You can consult your IVF specialist for more information.
3 – Do not compare your IVF journey with others
We have already said this in our previous blog post, and we are saying it again. You are requested not to compare your IVF journey with others. The IVF procedure can be different for different women, depending upon various factors, such as age, etc. Comparison brings nothing, but stress and lots of stress that can lead to undesired IVF outcomes.
In addition to the things said above, there are more ways you can turn to and ease your IVF journey. The professionals at Dr. Sushmita Mukherjee’s Fertility Clinic offer proper guidance and support during your IVF journey. Feel free to schedule an appointment to find out more about the IVF procedure.
