The Importance of Patient Empowerment During Fertility Treatments

The decision to start a family is one of the biggest that a person can make in their life. That decision can become even more complicated when fertility issues arise, as couples can often become discouraged at the prospect of not being able to conceive.

Luckily, recent technology has provided incredible potential for a wide variety of fertility treatments to be used in order to maximize the chances of conception. However, it is extremely important that potential fertility patients understand that they have the power and opportunity to make the choices for themselves.

If you are considering fertility treatments for any number of reasons, we have put together some information about how you can empower yourself when beginning your fertility journey.

Do Not Be Afraid of Fertility Treatment

Dr. Gad Lavy, of New England Fertility, points out the two most common fears that new fertility patients have are the fear of treatment failure and the fear of the treatment cost. While it is natural for patients to have their doubts when entering into such an unknown world for them, by trusting the experts that they work with, they can quickly get over the fear and focus their energy on making progress.

The more fear that patients have during the process, the more stress they put on themselves. By simply trusting the fertility treatments, they can make the entire experience much more relaxed and enjoyable.

Empowering Yourself to Choose the Best Fertility Path For Your Needs

Everybody is different and each couple have their own specific reasons for seeking fertility treatment. The most common reasons are:

  1. Couples that have been attempting to conceive for at least one year
  2. Couples that recognize medical risk factors that may prevent conception
  3. Proactive couples looking to get a head start on the fertility process

Regardless of which one you are, you need to understand that the decision always lies with you! The more educated you are about your options, the more comfortable you will be to make the decision that best suits your specific needs.

Work with a Fertility Professional that Views You as an Individual

The first and most important step in the fertility process is to find a clinic that treats you with the dedication that you deserve! Fertility is an extremely important step in your life, so you need to find a practitioner that listens to your individual needs and is willing to develop a treatment plan that best suits them.

By consulting with an expert that truly understands your specific circumstances, you will be able to explore all your fertility options. By having all the possibilities clearly laid out for you after an initial fertility assessment, you are able to make an educated decision as to what you feel is right for you.

Don’t Settle for Anything Less than High Quality Treatment

We are always told not to settle for a job we don’t like, not to settle for a partner we don’t love, so why should you settle for fertility treatment that you are not comfortable with?

Many new patients consult with the first clinic that they find, without exploring all the possibilities. This can lead to receiving lackluster advice or having a poor first impression of the fertility treatment industry, quickly leading them to abandon their search for top class clinics.

By doing proper online research, speaking to other patients and consulting with a variety of clinicians, you are able to get a well-rounded view of your possibilities, giving you the power to make the right decision for yourself.

Don’t Be Afraid to Try Something New

This is especially true for couples that have been trying to conceive for a year unsuccessfully, who may have already attempted some forms of fertility treatment. By stepping outside your comfort zone and working with an innovative fertility clinic, you may find a new treatment that is better suited for your situation.

As new fertility technology continues to emerge, there are doctors looking to work outside-of-the-box and offer dynamic treatments for patients that may be frustrated with previous attempts.

Again, doing research to discover clinics that may employ unconventional fertility methods offers you a new dimension in your decision-making process.
