Unfortunately, the process to become parents seems to take longer than we thought: It starts with a period of insisting attempts to conceive with no positive result, and then it continues with the required tests followed by a clinical diagnosis. After accepting the infertility, the cycles of assisted reproduction treatment begin.
It is very important not to give up because the ultimate goal is very gratifying. Face the failure and keep trying are two important keys to achieve the dream of becoming parents. Change and adapt your emotions to avoid your psychological exhaustion and that of your partner.
How not to give up on the idea of becoming parents?
Here are some tips about not giving up on your dream:
- Accept the situation
Accept the emotions which may arise from the delay on achieving the pregnancy, infertility diagnosis and the emotional roller coaster. If more cycles are necessary, you will need to accept the positive emotions of achieving your desire with the negative emotions associated with not fulfilling your goal.
Don’t blame yourself and accept it. In this way, it will be easier handling the frustration and not giving up.
- Be inspired by positive messages
Run away from negative thoughts and remember that one of the main tips in fulfilling your dream is trust your strategies on how to face the treatment and keep in mind your success rates.
