Considering how stressful and urgent work could turn out to be on certain days, individuals strive hard to strike a balance between their work life and personal life. It becomes even more challenging to find the right balance when you have decided to opt for an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. Managing your schedule when you have a full-time job while undergoing an IVF treatment could be a challenge. In addition, it is essential to understand that once you have opted for an IVF treatment, you may be required to visit your fertility clinic in the middle of your working day. Hence, it is important to plan your schedule accordingly especially when you have a full-time job and undergoing IVF treatment.

We have listed down a few important tips that may help our patients manage their job and the IVF treatment at the same time.
When you opt for an IVF treatment, your IVF expert will share the approximate timeline of your treatment before it begins. The process involves several stages including, ovarian stimulation, ultrasound to check your progress, blood tests, egg collection, and lastly embryo transfer if the previous steps are successful. However, it is not easy to exactly predict how many days ovarian stimulation will require, the number of times you may need to visit the clinic for blood tests, number of ultrasounds, and the process of egg collection.
It is essential to inform your colleagues or work friends about the treatment to make the process of balancing your work and IVF easier. In addition, if you are on good terms with your manager, boss, or your supervisor, it is an added bonus as it will be easier to go on with the treatment. In addition, if you manage to communicate with your boss openly, it is likely he/she will offer their support. Hence, informing your close colleagues about your IVF treatment will significantly help your manage the IVF treatment in a better manner.
In most cases, fertility clinics try their best to schedule your treatment on days that do not affect your work schedule. However, at times, there is a high possibility you may need to visit your fertility clinic on a working day. Hence, it is essential to plan and manage your schedule in advance to ensure no important work or meeting is pending.
After going through the rough timeline of your treatment, you may have a fair idea about when you are likely to miss work. Hence, it is essential to either delegate your work for the day to someone or put in the extra hours to complete it before your treatment. Moreover, there are a few procedures such as egg retrieval after which you may not be able to work effectively as it requires sedation. Hence, delegating your work for the day to someone is highly recommended.
Often, we tend to put our career and work requirements before us. However, during an IVF treatment, it is essential to put yourself first to ensure that the whole process is effective and stress-free. It is important to remember that you need to be fit and sound to achieve success and do your best at work. Hence, take proper rest, ensure you are taking your medication on time, and use this opportunity to spend time with family and friends.
Striking a balance between work and IVF is not at all impossible. However, it is essential to plan your schedule accordingly to ensure you can manage work and IVF at the same time.
