If your IVF cycle has been canceled due to COVID-19, you are not alone

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has affected millions of lives all over the world. You can barely come across a region that is not in the clutches of this deadly virus. People engaged in public services like nurses and doctors are putting their lives on the line to render sustainability in medical services. Worse, services industries are retrenching employees as economies are collapsing down. Parents are compelled to work remotely from home and home school their children at the same time.

However, there have been some significant developments as the internet is being flooded with contents that provide tricks and tips of living in home quarantine with kids. Besides, there are plenty of free online childbirth courses to help out an expecting mother. There is a fuss that the COVID-19 outbreak will soon bring about a baby boom all over the world. However, the dark side of this pandemic is not merely restricted to global casualties and economic recession. The pandemic has hit hard couples who have a strong desire to start a family through assisted reproductive technology or IVF treatment.

Trouble in getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy

 The report of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine is alarming. It states that 1 in 8 couples face difficulty in conceiving successfully. Couples who fail to conceive naturally opt for fertility treatments as a last resort for starting or growing family. Amidst the pandemic fertility clinics are orienting their treatment protocols and patient management. To brief it out, things are not looking very impressive for those who wish to become pregnant soon.

Fertility clinics all over the world have suspended all new treatment cycles that include intrauterine insemination, In Vitro Fertilization, and ovulation induction. They are also enforcing an indefinite postponement over procedures like egg freezing and embryo transplantation. The emphasis is given on suspending non-urgent diagnostic procedures and elective surgeries. An exemption is given to patients who are currently in-cycle and have an urgent requirement of crypto preservation and stimulation.

The effects of new guidelines

 Although the new guidelines are being issued to serve the best interest of health workers, nurses, and doctors, there is another repercussive side that has compelled couples to abandon their family planning goals indefinitely. Couples who have been braving infertility issues for several years may feel hopeless as their journey to conceiving successfully has been one long waiting game. So far, you have taken hormone injections and scheduled several appointments with doctors, and blood draws. If all of these end in a negative pregnancy test results, your hope just crashes into the ground. If you have to repeat the whole process once again, it leaves you emotionally and physically exhausted.

Treatment of infertility can be a time-consuming affair. To quote the words of fertility experts, “Just relax, and it will happen.” However, this piece of advice may not be so rewarding for a couple who have waited for ages. A few months more can seem to be a lifetime. If you are among those who were about to start an IVF treatment and was compelled to postpone or if you are among those who were about to undergo surgery for fertility may feel frustrated. Well, you have every right to feel so.

However, there are positives of this predicament at personal levels. You have a chance to take a break from the physical and mental stresses that are engrained in infertility treatments. Just think about it. A break from injections doctor’s appointment and acupressure sessions can be invaluable. You can use this time to groom yourself and leave aside the shadows in your life. It can be a great time to live up your passions and rediscover yourself.

There are lots of options to spend time in a healthy way, which includes workout regimens, meditate, or read books. You must believe that you can conceive successfully and carry your pregnancy successfully to the delivery of a healthy baby. You must affirm it and get the though in your nerves that the difficulty you are going through is temporary, and you can come out of it stronger and powerful.

Putting yourself in the best possible frame of mind with a never say die spirit will pave the way for a desirable outcome. You will surely have your chance. You can do all that is in your hand and bless yourself for positive results. It is easier said than done, but this is the way to go about it. Talk to your physician, go for a counseling session, chat with friends, and surround yourself with positive vibes; you can live up and experience motherhood, which is the supreme goal of all infertility treatments.

We wish you all the best in your impending motherhood and keep moving forward with new enthusiasm.
