Ordinarily, most patients experience immense emotional difficulty around the uncertainty and delays involved in their fertility treatment. The majority of patients we see express how deeply troubling they find the lack of certainty – not knowing when or if their treatment is ever going to give them the pregnancy they have been longing and trying for. Every month that passes really counts, and each delay or wait seems interminable and frustrating. The sense of life being on hold, or feeling ‘in limbo’ and unable to plan anything, is a recurring theme in the conversations we have with fertility patients.
Now, add COVID -19 into this mix – and the resulting hold on fertility treatments – and the increased anxiety and uncertainty will surely be intensifying these already disturbing and frustrating emotions.
