How to prepare for IVF treatment during COVID-19

I know that this is a frustrating time for our patients who have been waiting to start treatment, but we are here to support you as much as possible during this time. Here are a few suggestions that you can do during lockdown so that you are as prepared as possible for when you begin your treatment.

How to prepare for IVF treatment during COVID-19


1. Use this time to make sure your body is ready for treatment and pregnancy

Make sure you're maintaining a healthy weight, getting regular exercise and following a balanced diet. While it may be difficult during this time, trying to stay relaxed and giving up vices such as smoking will all help to optimise your fertility status. You should also be taking folic acid with vitamin D. For more information of lifestyle changes you can make to optimise your fertility click here.


2. Do your research

We have lots of information on our website as well as useful blogs, and stories from previous patients. I also host weekly webinars and Q&A sessions where you can find out more about our services, as well as ask me any of your IVF questions. Register for my next webinar here.


3. Begin your journey now with our Virtual Initial Consultation

We are conducting virtual consultations where you can discuss your fertility with a highly experienced fertility nurse who will put together your tailored treatment plan for you. Find out more about our virtual consultations here.

The situation we are currently in is a cause of concern for everyone, but particularly those who have had to have their fertility treatments put on hold. If you are in this situation and found that to access the things that would normally help you cope is restricted, practicing positive thinking and mindfulness could help with managing any concerns or stress you are currently dealing with.
