completely normal for all IVF patients to be anxious because you don't know how
well the cycle is going to grow, whether you're going to grow eggs, how good
your quality of embryos is going to be, or whether you're going to get pregnant
or not. There's a lot of suspense and uncertainty, and of course this will
cause anxiety and stress, and this is fine. Every IVF patient goes through it.
After all, no one enjoys going through an IVF cycle. The good news is that the stress
will not affect your chances of getting pregnant. It will not affect growth of
follicles. It will not affect fertilization. So either way, don't feel too bad
common, for example, for patients to have difficulty sleeping during an IVF
cycle, and this is completely normal given the fact that you're going through a
treatment which has so much riding on it and you can't be sure what the outcome
is going to be. But don't make a bad situation worse. And if you do need to
take anxiety medications, that's fine. They don't have an adverse effect on
your IVF cycle either, but use standard home remedies first, like meditation.
through an IVF cycle can be packed with anxiety, but dont forget that being
infertile also causes a lot of anxiety. Ideally, IVF should relieve your
anxiety, as you now have something positive to look forward to !
