Fertility treatments can be
very stressful both physically and emotionally.
All Fertility treatment
requires a great deal of commitment from a couple; some couples find it
difficult to carry on working during a treatment cycle when they may be
expected to attend clinics at unsociable hours (there are only specific
times in their cycle that drug treatment can start or eggs can be
collected). Many women also find the collection of eggs uncomfortable.
Above all fertility treatment is stressful and anxiety provoking both
physically and mentally, couples have so much time, emotion and often
money invested that stress levels can become extremely high, not to
mention the affect upon relationships, the feelings of guilt and blame and
the process of making babies becoming very clinical.
All these negative emotions
can have a detrimental impact on the odds of conception by:
● Suppressing luteinizing hormone
● Increasing serum cortisol levels
● Inhibiting hypothalamic Gnrh function
● Preventing implantation of a fertilized egg
● Reducing egg quality
● Delaying release of eggs
● Elevating prolactin levels
by triggering the fight, flight, freeze response where blood is literally
redirected towards the bodies organs needed for survival,
meaning the blood
is directed away from the uterus, hindering the procedure
rather than helping
When pregnancy occurs
without medical intervention, implantation occurs when women are going
about the normal daily activities; they may be shopping, sleeping, working
etc. When women have had medical fertility treatments such as IVF, they
are acutely aware of what may be happening. With so much hope and emotion
invested, it is not surprising that couples become very focused on the
process taking place, and high levels of stress and anxiety can be the
result - Unfortunately this is the exact opposite of what would happen
Hypnosis for Fertility can
help reduce these levels of stress and anxiety,
By removing emotional
blocks, addressing feelings of guilt and blame and by teaching individuals
how to keep stress and anxiety to an absolute minimum before, during and
after medical treatment.
for Fertility treatment
programmes are tailored to each individual. When you think about it, it is
really common sense that if you can feel calm, be comfortable and work
with your partner to enhance the process you will provide a more
favourable environment for conception and feel more involved in the
process as a couple.
