  • If you feel continually emotionally distressed (sad, fearful, angry, difficulty sleeping, etc.) for a week or more.
  • If you have a history of mood disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.), with or without taking psychotropic drugs.
  • If you are finding it hard to accept the surgery and/or treatments you have been indicated.
  • If you suffer from other stress factors (young children, dependents for whom you are responsible, money concerns, etc.).
  • If you lack support from family or friends.
  • If symptoms appear that cannot be attributed to your condition.
  • If you are having difficulty getting back into the routine of daily life (work, social and family).

Testimony

Sofía, aged 43, Barcelona

"We had been trying for a baby for 6 years. When we began our IVF treatment with donated eggs, the psychologist helped us to process all the information in order to accept the proposed treatment and focus exclusively on our goal of becoming parents. The anxiety we felt after several failed treatments and the fact that we did not know whether this new treatment would be a success meant that we couldn't handle or cope with our emotions to move forward on the difficult road to becoming parents. On our first attempt and thanks to the emotional support we had, we are now living this stage of our pregnancy to the full".
