Your New Year’s Fertility Resolutions

Your New Year’s Fertility Resolutions

As we near the new year, it feels like we are closing one chapter and starting a new one. We want this new year to bring a renewed sense of hope and determination to everyone going through fertility treatment and working towards their goal of becoming parents. 

Here at OC Fertility, we are committed to achieving the highest success rates while providing a tailored, trauma-informed patient experience. We look forward to serving our current and new patients in the new year. 

Below are a few New Year’s fertility resolutions to help ring in the new year and bring you closer to success on your journey in 2023. 

 

Be Proactive About Your Health

Keeping your physical and mental health front of mind in the new year is a great way to start fresh. Eating a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly to maintain your overall health (including fertility) and help lower your BMI. In addition to incorporating good eating and activity habits into your life, now is also a great time to quit smoking, reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake, and take your daily vitamins. 

Take Time Away From Social Media

Your mental health is important, and social media posts about baby announcements, gender reveals, and childhood milestones can be triggering while you are undergoing fertility treatment. Consider unplugging and taking some time to focus on yourself and your fertility journey. 

Lean On Your Support Network

You are not alone on this journey, so don’t feel you can’t share your journey with others. Leaning on your partner, family, and friends is a great way to feel more bonded with your support network and supported during the rougher days. Reaching out to a therapist or other mental health professional is another option for support help. Some therapists have direct experience with infertility and know what you are working through. In addition, online support networks and groups, such as Uniquely Knitted, are here to support you. 

Don’t Blame Yourself or Your Partner

Dealing with fertility issues can leave some patients feeling guilty and at fault for their present situation, but it’s important to remember that infertility is not your fault or your partner’s fault. Infertility affects nearly one in eight individuals and couples, and it’s often out of our control, so it’s best to remain hopeful and not let these feelings of guilt or shame take over. 

Next Steps in the New Year

At OC Fertility, we are here to support you on your journey, and we want the new year to bring you that renewed sense of hope and energy to move forward with your treatment plan. 

We look forward to taking that next step with you on your journey to parenthood and are happy to work with you to ensure you have the best experience at our clinic. If you are ready to move forward and haven’t called, we encourage you to set up your initial consultation to learn more about our state-of-the-art facility and the leading medical care our team provides.
