Those couples who do not respond to traditional fertility treatments find themselves confronted with decisions concerning In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). IVF treatments are highly technological and may cause additional stress for couples who have already endured multiple disappointments. IVF can be difficult, both physically and emotionally.

There are several strategies that can assist couples when starting IVF:

  • Become informed about IVF treatments and what is right for you and your partner.
  • Understand the process of IVF and knowing what to expect will lessen your anxiety about the IVF procedure.
  • Be realistic about your expectations during IVF treatments and be aware that each IVF cycle contributes valuable information which can be of assistance in subsequent cycles.
  • Set limitations.
  • Make decisions ahead of time. Discuss with your spouse your feelings about cryopreservation, donor semen, the number of IVF cycles you will attempt, and who will be included in your confidence.
  • Dealing with infertility emotionally. At The Center counseling may be of assistance to some couples to help them cope with difficult emotions and stress.
