It is possible that you will feel as though you need to put your entire life on hold while undergoing fertility treatments because of the numerous medical appointments, the time-sensitive medicine, and the unpredictable changes to the protocol during the cycle. It could be simpler for you to just call off your trip, skip your friend’s wedding that’s being held somewhere else, or try to unload those concert tickets you bought a year ago. It may feel as though you have no choice but to choose between your goals and getting reproductive therapy. But what if you were able to engage in both activities simultaneously?
Please reconsider your decision to cancel your plans and give it one last go to see if you can make it happen since you have earned it! The most important thing is to make a detailed strategy and discuss it with your physician before putting it into action. It may be as easy as taking your shots at a different time of the day compared to the cycles you have completed in the past, depending on what you have planned. Nevertheless, it may be as challenging as scheduling an appointment in a city near your final destination while simultaneously making travel arrangements to go there by aircraft. Did you know that many fertility clinics would take a new patient for outside monitoring sessions and will work with your home clinic to provide the data to your doctor? If you didn’t, you should know that. If the timing of your trip coincides with a routine monitoring visit, your primary care physician may give you permission to have your condition checked at a different clinic. It may be up to you to locate a clinic that is willing to accept patients who require outside monitoring; therefore, you should be prepared to do some research, fill out some paperwork, and pay a small fee; however, if this means that you will be able to go on your planned trip, it is well worth the effort.
In the event that your prescription has to be chilled, you should make sure that you have a strategy and the necessary resources to keep the medication at a cold temperature both while you are in transportation and once you get to your destination. You are allowed to bring your prescription on board an aircraft; however, various airlines have varying packing rules. Therefore it is important that you familiarise yourself with their processes and regulations before boarding an airplane. You are required to let the security personnel aware that you are carrying fertility drugs with you. Be cautious about checking with your medical professional before going through the x-ray machine on whether or not your medicine is safe to do so. In such a case, you have the option of requesting that an employee do a manual search of your bag rather than having it go through the x-ray machine. Additionally, you should never place your medicine in a checked suitcase when traveling. You want to avoid putting yourself in a position where there is a possibility that the airline will misplace your luggage. If you are going to be staying at a hotel, you should make a reservation in advance to ensure that your room will have a refrigerator. In the event that refrigerators are not already included, they are obligated to provide you with one so that you can store your prescription at a cool temperature.
If you want to make progress with the cycle, you need to be adaptable and ready for your physician to advise you that the vacation either needs to be shortened or canceled entirely. It is not because your physician does not want you to go and enjoy yourself that you are being prevented from doing so. They are solely concerned with doing what is necessary to ensure the continued success of the cycle, but the timing is only sometimes on their side.
Try to keep in mind what you consider to be of the utmost importance, even if all of this is a lot of work, and even though being flexible might be challenging in situations when other people are involved. If you can pull it off, go ahead and make the trip. Get out there and have some good old-fashioned fun to keep your mind off the fact that you can’t seem to conceive a child!
