Patience, persistence, and perseverance are extremely
important for IVF patients.
Part of the problem is that everyone wants instant
gratification in this day and age !
They have very unrealistic expectations of IVF success
rates, partly because of all the tall claims made in misleading ads and clinic websites,
which claim pregnancy rates of 60% and 70% ! These are a complete lie, but these
inflated false expectations, coupled with unrealistic time frames, usually
means that patients end up killing their own dreams. They go to pieces when
their first IVF cycle fails, and they forget that they need to factor in the
fact that IVF, like any other process, is something which takes time.
The truth is that it can take them up to three to four
cycles to get pregnant, and they need to accept this before they start the IVF cycle,
so they're prepared for failure , and don't go to pieces in case the first
cycle does not work !
