Fertility treatment is super relaxing! It is quite difficult to think anyone would have said this thing. Well, there are different reasons stress can come across while undergoing the IVF. The number of tests and procedures can make you feel frustrated. Do not worry as our IVF doctor has shared some informative tips to relax yourself during In-Vitro-fertilization.
Does stress affect conception chances?
The coping behavior you adopt the following stress can lead to negative effects. It means, if you smoke, eat in excess, or indulge in an unhealthy lifestyle then fertility issues can rise and conception chances will decline. This is the reason, when the patient visits our fertility doctor at the IVF centre we give them proper advice and support throughout the treatment to make this journey easy and smooth. Let’s explore the tip to relax during the treatment:
- Set the time to worry
No doubt, it is stressful as you have faced problems in the past and now the treatment. In that case, it is best to designate a time frame to worry instead of getting stressed all day long. Worry for 10 or 30 minutes in a day but once the time is done do not think anything negative.
- Get into the exercise regime
Relax by doing mild to moderate exercise. This is the best approach to take away all the anxiety and nervousness. But, make sure you exercise in your comfort zone.
- Progressive relaxation technique
This is the best practice that you can do anywhere as it helps you store muscular tension. You should start with one of the body parts like toes. Slowly tighten up each area, relax, and let the tension go away. Make sure to take deep breaths along with it. Hold muscular tension for 5 seconds and relax for 20 seconds.
- Do 10 slow breaths
Do large and belly-filling breaths to calm yourself. Studies have shown that it helps in stabilizing the blood pressure and slows down the heartbeat. So, take 10 deep and slow breaths in the afternoon and evening. It is best to do it every day for 10 to 20 minutes.
- Choose a self-care activity
Along with the above-mentioned tips, you should include self-care activity to make you feel happy and delighted. Some of the options are yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, adult coloring, reading, listening to music, prayer, cooking, painting, or playing games.
If at any point you have doubts in your mind then talk to the fertility doctor right away.
