In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment can be both emotionally and physically demanding. There are a few steps you can take to increase your chances of a successful pregnancy, which will involve many phases that usually have an impact on different levels of the patient’s life. Feelings like uncertainty, hope, anxiety, and optimism may mix in the journey, along with body changes, so it’s important to be aware and p/repared for this assisted reproductive technique.

Also, they can redirect you to an emotional support expert if you need it.
