One of the hardest parts of going through infertility is waiting. Although fertility treatments can be extremely successful, the process may take a long time. Your fertility care team will make adjustments to your care based on how your body reacts. This process, at times, can seem to take forever.
Unfortunately, it is easy to lose hope during this time. Receiving negative pregnancy test results or receiving test results that are not what you expected can be devastating. While it is normal to feel this way, don’t allow negative outcomes to deter you from your ultimate goal. In the end, what you are feeling now and all of your hard work will pay off. When that day comes, when you hold your child in your arms for the first time, it will all be worth it.
There are some things that can help you get through the waiting process:
- Talk with your doctors and fertility care team. The staff at New Hope is here to provide you with the best infertility care in NYC. This does not stop with medical treatments. Please come to us with any questions you may have about the process. Sometimes, fully understanding what you’re facing helps you cope.
- Take part in our support groups. It is extremely helpful to talk with women who are experiencing the same issues at the same time. Infertility can feel isolating, as though you’re the only one in the world who has to work this hard to have a baby. The truth is, you’re not alone.
- Find ways to relieve stress. You need to find an outlet. That can be exercise, reading, mentoring, taking weekend getaways or anything else that allows you to relax. It’s important that you still take care of yourself. Trying to conceive is hard - you deserve some down time.
