IVF During COVID-19
The unexpected COVID-19 crisis has emerged as a huge challenge for couples seeking In Vitro Fertilizations (IVF) treatment. COVID-19 vaccine may be one of the better things to come out of 2021. But if you’re on a fertility journey, you’ve probably still got a lot of questions about what the corona virus means for your pregnancy. COVID-19 crisis and lockdown suddenly changed our life. Patients start the cancellation of IVF cycle or treatment due to the threat of the COVID virus.
Why IVF cancelled?
We all know that the IVF cycle is a planned preparation and takes several months. Eventually, as the lockdown was announced, there were travel restrictions, absence of public transport and extended lockdown. It was resulting in the cancellation of treatment or discontinuation of treatment.
What does the expert say?
Our expert Dr . Bhavana Mittal from IVF Clinic in Delhi says, there needs to be awareness among the patients regarding the IVF treatment ever since the outbreak of COVID-19. This time can be stressful for women who are trying to become pregnant or thinking about beginning fertility treatments. There is no real data to know how it will affect pregnant women and their babies. But yes, it’s a risk if the women have diabetes or hypertension, it will affect them more. So we can suggest them to wait for a few more months.
