23 Aug How to establish a good bond with your gynecologist and with the clinic’s medical team?
1. Be open and transparent about your situation and about how you feel.
2. Ask all the questions you might have (remember, there are no dumb questions!)
3. Communicate your needs so that the medical professional can choose the right approach for your specific case.
Assisted reproduction treatments involve many doubts, uncertainties, emotions, and, on top of that, they can take up a lot of your time. This is why it is very important to establish a good bond both with your gynecologist, and with the clinic’s medical team, from the very beginning, as those will be the people who will accompany you during the process. Feeling safe, confident, and comfortable with the team assigned, will most definitely have a positive impact on your emotional well-being.
You should be transparent about your situation, and about how you feel, so as to feel fully understood.
Feel free to ask anything that you would like to know, keeping in mind that there are no dumb questions. By doing so, you will surely clarify all the doubts you might have, and you will be able to make better decisions.
It is also useful to express your needs without hesitation, so that the medical professional can choose the right approach for your specific case. One example would be to ask them to explain to you what they’re doing during an examination, so that you don’t feel so anxious. Or you could ask them to explain everything in detail, so that you feel more prepared when making decisions.
