When IVF has now become a reality
Discovering that you need to have IVF to become pregnant can be devastating news. What was supposed to be a normal and easy step in your life has come to an abrupt halt.
You may not know anything about IVF, or even know anyone who has had IVF treatment.
Suddenly you are thrust into a world of doctors, specialists, procedures and a bunch of medical terms that you don’t understand.
So where do you start?
Thankfully, there is a wealth of knowledge and support at your fingertips. No matter where you are in the world there are online forums, Facebook groups, and websites full of information and support that can help you get informed about what’s to come, and make everything a little less daunting.
The internet is also the best way to research what clinics are available to you both locally and abroad, their costs, success rates and reviews and you can see testimonials by patients or former patients. Simply searching for ‘IVF support’ in your local area can get you started and connect you to some excellent local resources and online forums.
Communicating with others about your experiences will not only help you understand your treatment, but may help you cope emotionally with the ups and downs of your IVF journey.
You may even make some wonderful friends. You don’t have to go through this alone!
