After a woman decides upon in vitro fertilization or IVF, she may feel relieved that something is in the offing or she may fear the physical implications cum interventions.

How to cope up with the ‘two-week wait’?
- It is better to avoid pregnancy tests as the chances of a positive result before a late period is rather very slim. Often, even the medications tend to provide false-positive results.
- It is better not to get obsessed with the pregnancy symptoms, thus feeling that pregnant does not necessarily indicate that the woman is pregnant. It is alright to stay hopeful but avoid being obsessed with the idea of a positive outcome.
- It is a good idea to spend 15 to 30 minutes thinking about the pregnancy. Writing down one’s feelings about it, carrying out pregnancy research, or even discussing the issue with one’s partner, friends, and family. The pregnancy thoughts should not overwhelm a woman.
- It is better to stay busy. This would mean working slightly more, going out more, planning meaningful distractions.
- Try some relaxing techniques, such as relaxing exercises, meditation et cetera.
