Although the most effective method for the achievement of pregnancy, in vitro fertilization is not omnipotent and is not a "magic wand" in struggle with infertility.
Psychological stress can negatively affect the entire course of treatment, not so much in terms of reduced chances of success, as much in terms of degradation of the quality of life of women, men and the couple in general, and this is a very important factor.
The aim of each treatment is not only expressed through success rate of pregnancy (although there are studies that suggest that this segment could be jeopardized by psychological stress), but maintaining the mental well-being throughout the process.
One of the most significant factors that lead to the final failure is giving up treatment after one or more unsuccessful attempts, and this withdrawal is largely a consequence of the inability of the couple to cope with the burden of treatment.
Therefore, the entire system of infertility treatment today is designed to provide the maximum support for couple and to minimize the disruption of everyday life.

Taking all this into consideration, and in addition to the overall approach of support for a couple, in FERONA we have organized both individual and group treatments with psychologist - therapist specially trained to work with a patient with this problem.
