Wouldn’t it be great if we could control mother nature? We would get exactly what we wanted when we wanted it! Unfortunately, some things can’t be controlled, the only thing we can control is the way we react to the situation. Experiencing an unsuccessful IVF cycle is disappointing. All the time spent preparing, the injections, the emotional stress, the cost–it is difficult, even in the best of situations. So what do you do if after all of that the IVF doesn’t work? Do you give up? Do you accept defeat? No, of course not.
The first thing to do is to grieve and deal with the disappointment. Be sad. Take the time to feel everything you’re feeling. Then let the sadness pass and get back to living your life. Open the curtains, let in the light. It’s time to reset your body and get right back to your baby dreams!
Tip Number One
Practice daily appreciate for yourself and who you are and for your fertile body. There is a reason why your IVF didn’t take. Your body is intelligent. You should not punish yourself if the cycle was unsuccessful, in fact, you should do the exact opposite. Now is the time to be gentle with yourself and really practice self-love. Take time to sleep, pamper yourself with candles and a hot bath, put on your favourite comfy clothes and do something you love. Call a friend, read a book or curl up and watch a movie with your partner. Take your mind away from what you didn’t achieve and focus on restoring your energy so you can get back at it.
Tip Number Two
Take a couple of months to get your body back on track with the right food, nutrition and supplements. Pack your diet full of nourishing foods like bone broths and herbal teas. It’s also important to get moving. Do some yoga and gentle exercise to get everything moving.
Tip Number Three
Start a detox! Clear out your body from all the hormones.
Your body has just been through a lot of stress. It’s important to take the time to refuel. Cleanse the excess hormones that may be floating around and replenish all your vitamin and mineral stores that may have been depleted.
