Starting Ivf soon

Hey! New to this app. I’ll be starting Ivf for the first time after struggling with infertility for over 6 years. Very anxious and nervous! I don’t know what to do or what not to do as there’s just too much content online. So lost …. Hopefully it goes well. If anyone has any tips , please let me know. Thanks in advance

Hi! A few pieces of advice: 1) Try not to compare your protocol/journey with anyone else’s. Everyone’s instructions are unique to their clinic and specific needs. Trust your doctor (but of course, advocate for yourself!). 2) If you can, do everything in your power to practice patience. IVF can be a very slow process. It can take weeks (even months) between steps. Don’t be hard on yourself. Keep yourself busy with healthy distractions and fulfilling hobbies. Live your life as close to normal as possible. 3) Stay healthy but give yourself grace. Eating a balanced diet, drinking lots of water, staying active, and getting your sleep all go a long way but no one thing will make or break your success so balance is key but don’t make yourself crazy over it. IVF isn’t a club people want to join but this community is full of supportive people who understand your struggles more than the people closest to you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions (even if they feel silly) and reach out! 🤍

Thank you so much Rachel!
