Hi everyone! I am new to this forum stuff but I just started IVF for the first time and am very nervous. I am 29 and my husband is 33. He has cystic fibrosis which is why we have to do IVF. I started my first stimulation shot last night. I am taking Gonal-F and Lupron. I am feeling alot of anxiety and don't know if its from the hormones or just my own nervousness. Any advice? I'd really appreciate it

Hi there! We're not scheduled for IVF until April so I can't exactly say I know the feeling, but I can certainly imagine! I'm nervous already and I haven't even started anything yet!

I've heard people say that acupuncture can be helpful in relaxation. I'm planning on working on meditation as being my go-to relaxer. I wonder if massage might be helpful too?

I'm also sure that just talking about it can help ease the nerves, so hope others can offer more "tried and true" advice!

Good luck!
Ingrid

Hi and Welcome. Join us in the IVF forum up above. There is a bunch of us getting ready or already started. See you there.

I think being nervous is normal... I am too.
