13 Jul Recommendations for when you’re starting an assisted reproduction treatment
1. Accept the emotions that may arise, and try to manage them, but if at any point you need help, do not be afraid to ask for it.
2. Listen and attend to your needs.
3. Reduce stress factors and improve your self-care.
4. Use your close circle of loved ones as a support system.
Assisted reproduction treatments are generally considered to be a vital stress factor because of all that they entail. First and foremost, it’s important to allow yourself to experience and release the emotions that you are feeling.
Secondly, it’s very important to reflect on and attend to your needs, that is, to listen closely to your body so as to know what your needs are at any given moment.
It is also necessary, at this point, to reduce any excess stress factors and to improve your self-care, with the aim of being able to prioritize your well-being.
Finally, relying on your support system of family and/or friends will allow you to feel more accompanied, heard, and less alone.
