How to prepare the injectable medications for your treatment

If you haven’t yet started your IVF treatment yet, you may feel slightly overwhelmed at the thought of having to inject yourself everyday, so Embryolab Fertility Clinic have prepared a series of short videos to help you understand how the procedure works, with step by step instructions on how to prepare your medication and apply the injections.

(The videos are also available in Greek, Serbian and Romanian.)

Positive Psychology

Injecting yourself everyday is a big deal emotionally, so we turned to Evi Kalouta, Psychologist and Psychotherapist from Embryolab, and asked her for some guidance

“IVF treatment is for every woman an unprecedented experience, not only for her body, but also for her psychology.

“She has on one hand, anxiety about the process, and on the other her desire to reach her goal. These two emotions however, work together as two forces that give her the strength to start!

“Concerns such as “Will I be able to do the injections? / Will they affect me psychologically?” are not uncommon – on the contrary, they are part of the normal emotional process for every woman who seeks her own sense of confidence in what she is doing. Having available answers is important and makes her feel safe!

“Looking inwards she discovers the strength, the courage and the right mechanisms, she already possesses, to overcome all challenges.”

Care

Argyro Sfakianaki, Fertility Specialist Midwife and Director of Embryolab Obstetrics Department tells us:

“Over the centuries, through the increased care of obstetric science, we have learnt to listen to every woman’s needs as we walk beside her on her path towards her fertility.

“In IVF treatments, the challenge of injecting is an unprecedented experience, which we wanted to illuminate by creating these videos concerning their implementation.

“We accurately show the preparation procedure for each injectable medication. A lady following the same steps for her treatment, covers any possible questions that may arise. Each lady and each partner can watch the video as many times as needed, until they feel safe!

“Through these videos we discovered another way to be by your side in each stage of treatment!
