- Fit the IVF schedule with your professional commitments.
IVF requires a lot of tests, appointments and report analysis. Naturally, you will have to take out time for it. It is preferable that your doctor works within your natural ovulation cycle, using a low dose of fertility drugs or none of them. You can further schedule your appointments according to your work hours during the weekdays or keep it for weekends. Fewer fertility drugs will mean fewer side effects and fewer mental and physical upheavals, which may be good for your emotional health.
