  1. Psychological aspects of in vitro fertilization : a review.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper reviews psychological research within the context of in vitro fertilization (IVF).

    The focus will be on psychological reactions before entering an IVF-procedure, during an IVF-treatment, and after both unsuccessful and successful IVF.

    The effects of psychosocial factors on the treatment outcome after IVF and interventions on conception rates will also be discussed.

    Undergoing an IVF-treatment is an emotional and physical burden, for both the woman and her partner.

    Research results suggest that couples entering an IVF-treatment program are, in general, psychologically well adjusted.

    Concerning reactions during the treatment, both women and men experience waiting for the outcome of the IVF-treatment and an unsuccessful IVF, as most stressful.

    Common reactions during IVF are anxiety and depression, while after an unsuccessful IVF, feelings of sadness, depression and anger prevail After a successful IVF-treatment, IVF-parents experience more stress during pregnancy than'normal fertile'parents.

    Mothers with children conceived by IVF express a higher quality of parent-child relationship than mothers with a naturally conceived child.

    Research further suggests that psychosocial factors, like ineffective coping strategies, anxiety and or depression are associated with a lower pregnancy rate following IVF-procedures.

    In addition, support has been found suggesting that stress reduction through relaxation training or behavioral treatment improves conception rates.
