The stress and excitement associated with fertility treatment abroad
An emotional battle. A combination of sweet expectation and fear, anxiety and excitement, joy and worry. It is true that IVF treatment, especially abroad, is a process that requires stability, organization and conscious determination. On the other hand, more and more couples are deciding to explore their IVF options abroad, especially in recent years.
It is worth noting that most couples have tried at least one or two IVF treatments in their countries without the expected results, before making the decision to go abroad. IVF treatment is a decision that has a relatively high cost, requires psychological and physical endurance from both. It is also certain that there will be an alternation of positive and negative emotions which can only be dealt with through goal shared identification.
Many may think that IVF treatment in a foreign country can add additional negative emotions. Nevertheless, statistics and reality itself prove that this decision is a challenge that can be crowned with absolute success. The question is whether anxiety trumps excitement and the truth is that according to the statistics, IVF abroad can be more successful for the following reasons:
Dedication and freedom
The distance from everyday life, obligations, work and friends or relatives who can negatively affect the whole process, has a positive effect. The couple can focus and concentrate on the IVF process feeling more free to live the whole experience as they wish to.
The feeling of travel
Most couples decide to treat IVF abroad as a vacation opportunity, to get closer, relax, have fun, thus reducing the stress of the process. This particular attitude works better for both of them, improves psychology and brings them together.
Some European countries have more liberal legislation than others, making IVF treatment more accessible to more couples, offering more alternatives. Greece, for example, has raised the age limit to 54, allowing also singles or divorced women to undergo IVF or egg cryopreservation.
A team work
Building a team is a priority for every clinic around the world, whose mission is to guide patients and help them understand the level of quality of services offered. Doctors and people with all the necessary specialties create a human circle that surrounds the patients with care, understanding, encouraging them to live the IFV experience and then leave the country with their dream alive.
Together we can
This is the feeling that the couple should have especially in IVF treatment abroad. The key word is “together” and the “key feelings” are empathy and trust. Patients need to feel that people they trust can listen to them, care about them and be there for them. This part activates hope and builds an emotional bond that is especially ignited by the shared purpose, the shared dream. The need for patients to seek personalized treatment and care meets the promise of clinics. This is a factor that creates excitement and anticipation.
Science and technology
Although most countries have developed the field of IVF, there are certain countries that have taken IVF treatment a step further. This is crucial for patients who have tried once or twice in their country without success. Another important factor that makes IVF abroad and especially IVF in Greece, a valuable ally and often the only way to parenthood.
Personalization is the golden rule
Treatment abroad is a challenge itself. It is therefore widely accepted that it creates a special connection between the patient and the clinic. There are not a few cases of patients who point out that they find a big difference in the treatment they have already followed in their country compared to the one they follow abroad, both in terms of care and organization, proving that personalization is the golden rule.
Although IVF treatment abroad was considered a complex process some years ago, it has nowadays become a very popular and conscious alternative for individuals or couples seeking to undertake this special procedure, while enjoying at the same time the joy of a trip. It is an emotional and financial investment that can create stress in the beginning. However, the right organization can create the ideal conditions that will lead you to your dream.
