How to fully prepare yourself for your IVF or medical fertility treatments

If you are thinking about or preparing to start IVF or any medical fertility treatment but you have no idea what is ahead. If you are unsure of the process, what is involved and what you will need to do. If you are confused about the different treatments on offer and you feel anxious, fearful and worried that your fertility treatment may not work, then this message is for you.

Here’s why.

I have a comprehensive program that is going to help you thoroughly prepare for every aspect of your fertility treatment so that you feel completely informed and in total control of what you are going through, and therefore more likely to get a successful outcome.

And you need to realise that there is a cost to not preparing for and learning everything you need to know about your fertility treatment.

If you aren’t fully informed about your fertility treatment, if you aren’t always clear about what is happening to you or why, or what all your options are, then this could ultimately impact whether your treatment is successful or not.

What most people do when they start fertility treatment is that they assume their doctor will explain everything that they need to know to them. But for a lot of people they are left even more confused because doctors don’t always have time during appointments to explain everything in detail about the fertility treatment or the different options available. Many people then turn to searching the internet or online groups for advice and information about IVF or their medical fertility treatment. But they end up getting incorrect and misleading information that isn’t from qualified medical experts.

And what happens if you just do nothing? If you just show up to your treatment and put your faith in doctors and medicine?

Well you might end up making some ill-informed decisions that could negatively impact your fertility treatment and the outcome you get.

This program will help you become informed and feel empowered and in control of your fertility treatment.

I’ve got an answer that works. Here’s the story.

When my doctor told me that he was going to refer me for IVF I realised how little I knew about medical fertility treatments. My treatment was due to start in a couple of weeks and I wanted to find out as much as I could so that I was fully informed and in the driver’s seat of my fertility treatment.

My doctor didn’t have time to go through everything with me in our brief appointments and the clinic gave me a couple of basic brochures to read, so I went online to find out more. But with all the conflicting information I ended up more confused and anxious about my treatment.

I needed a resource that was going to give me an in-depth understanding of my IVF treatment from beginning to end and that was easy to understand with no complicated medical terminology or doctor speak.

And that is how this program came about.

It has helped me and many other people, and it will help you too.

I was so unprepared. I didn’t even know what the letters, IVF stood for, let alone what was involved in medical fertility treatments. I was going to be spending so much money to have a baby this way and I wanted to make sure that I was doing everything I could to get the best outcome. This program left me feeling empowered and ready to conquer my fertility treatment as opposed to feeling in the dark, confused and unsure’.

Sara Foster

There is no way my fertility doctor would have been able to go through everything I learnt in this program to help prepare me. Not only was the program interesting, but I learnt so much about how to cope with the emotional side of fertility treatments. I loved how easy the program was to understand and how much I now know as I continue my treatments with knowledge and confidence’.

Kerry Saxton

Here’s what an understanding of IVF and medical fertility treatments did for me personally.

It helped me be very clear on exactly what was going to happen to me at each stage of my fertility treatment and why. I felt less stressed and anxious about my treatment, I felt more confident and in control and I was able to make better decisions about what I wanted or didn’t want when it came to my specific treatment and protocols.

But it’s not just me, here’s what the program has done for others.

Kate – The program helped me understand exactly what was going to happen in my treatment cycle.

Mary – I found out exactly what to do (and what not to do), to maximise the chance of a successful outcome. I was pregnant in my second round of IVF.

Olive – After doing this program I felt more fully informed about the different treatment options and was able to bring them up and discuss them with my doctor to put in place the best treatment for me.

Now it's your turn.

When you enrol in this program you’re going to:

  • Find out what IVF and medical fertility treatments are and how they can help you become pregnant.

  • Learn how to find the perfect fertility clinic for you.

  • Understand the different types of fertility treatments you might be offered.

  • Learn about the clinic, staff and the doctors and what will happen at your first appointment.

  • Know how to prepare for the start of your treatment.

  • Find out what happens during your egg collection and embryo transfer.

  • Find out how to survive the two-week wait and what you should and shouldn’t do during this time.

  • Your male partner also has access to a module that covers the male side of fertility treatments.

  • You will learn more about the pros and cons of using donor eggs and sperm.

  • You will get lots of practical advice on what you can do to influence the success of your treatment as well as cope with the emotional side of your fertility treatment.

  • Get an understanding of your options if your fertility treatment doesn’t succeed.

  • Learn what happens and next steps after you get your positive pregnancy test.

And you’re 100% safe to try this out.

That’s all I’m suggesting. Just try this program to see if it helps you. If it does, you’ll be delighted – and I think that’s exactly what’s about to happen. If for some reason you’re not delighted with how in control, empowered and informed you feel about your fertility treatment, then just let me know – and you’ll get all your money back.

It's decision time.

You have a choice to make.

Do you want you’ve doing, perhaps googling, getting advice from Facebook groups or hoping that you doctor will tell you what you need to know? You know where that will lead.

Or, are you ready to take a new action and get fully informed and in control of your fertility treatments?

Here’s what to do now.
