A fertility journey can be stressful during the best of times, but the uncertainty surrounding the impact of COVID-19 on your ability to create a family can be unbearable. While it may seem like your fertility journey is at a standstill, you can still make progress towards achieving your dreams of family – all from home. Below, the team at CRM’s fertility clinic in Orlando, Florida offer a few steps that you can take while at home to prepare you on your fertility journey while social distancing.
1. Drop Unhealthy Habits
Getting in the best overall health possible is one of the best steps you can take to increasing your chances of achieving your dreams of family. One of the best ways to improve your health? Drop unhealthy habits. Quit smoking, minimize alcohol intake, and practice which ever stress management techniques work for you while staying home so that you’re in the best position possible when you’re able to take next steps.
2. Achieve & Maintain a Healthy Weight
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can greatly improve your chances of success when trying to start a family. Now that you’re staying home, you can make strides towards achieving a healthy weight. Make nourishing meals, take up running or another home work out plan, and get yourself in fighting shape to tackle your fertility journey.
3. Speak With A Fertility Specialist – Virtually
While you may not be able to come into the office for your initial consult or follow up visit, you can still have your consult virtually. Whether you’re taking the first steps on your journey with a new patient consult, or making progress with a follow up consultation, telemedicine consults can keep you moving towards your goals. To schedule a telemedicine consult, contact us at 407-740-0909 today.
4. Review Your Finances
Figuring out how to pay for treatment can be one of the most stressful parts of your fertility journey. To help relieve some of that stress, take some time now to make sure your finances are in order so that when the time comes, you are ready to move forward with treatment. Contribute as much as you can to your savings and take some time to review your credit report. If you need financing for treatment like IVF, a better credit score can help you get a better rate.
While you may not be able to start fertility treatment right now, there is still plenty you can do in the meantime to make progress on your path to parenthood. From dropping unhealthy habits to speaking with one of our fertility specialists via telemedicine, these steps can all bring you closer to achieving your dreams of family.
