Calm and Confident
Emotional Balance for Conception.
The medical and scientific communities around the world are establishing hypnotherapy as a proven method to increase successful IVF procedures.
Hypnosis helps the patient to lower their stress levels and improve their emotional state, this gives the patient a sense of control, which maximizes her chances of conceiving naturally and/or improve the success of embryo transfer.
Two groups of women who underwent the IVF procedure where studied to see what the effects of hypnosis were. The study showed that hypnosis nearly doubled the success rate of the women who used hypnosis before and during the procedure.
Depression Can Hurt Your Chances
Unfortunately depression is a common side effect of infertility treatment. Often by the second or third year of infertility the success rates fall significantly. Treating depression can improve your fertility.
- Women with a history of depressive symptoms reported twice the rate of subsequent infertility (Psychosomatic Medicine, 1995, vol. 57)
- Women with depression, when treated showed a 60 percent viable pregnancy rate within six months, contrasting with 24 percent when depression went untreated. (Journal of American Medical Women’s Association, 1999, vol.54)
- Women who experienced depression following the failure of their first in vitro fertilization (IVF), had much lower pregnancy rates that their non depressed counterparts during their second IVF cycle (Journal of Psychosomatic Research, 1993, vol. 37)
