Fertility treatment has a huge impact on lives and relationships. Even though something like this begins with a shared, deep desire to have a baby, you both experience such treatment differently. Just because of the physical strain on women. Revi from waitingweeks.com: “You have to do it.”

The value of peer contact

With ivf, as a couple, you need an endless amount of time. Because of waiting, not knowing and having to wait endlessly after reassignment. The website wachtweken.nl, still in test phase, responds to this and aims to connect fellow sufferers, women but also men. Initiator Revi noticed from her own experience the strong need to be able to chat directly with other women during these waiting weeks. To have contact with someone who is going through the same thing at that time. True, there are numerous forums, Facebook groups, but direct contact you often don’t have there: waiting again.

Therefore: being able to share, if you need it during those waiting weeks after already having overcome so many steps. About physical changes, difficult emotions and to seek support from each other, for example when one of the partners does not have room for it at the time. Revi: “Everyone you talk to there is in the same boat. You can reach each other instantly, on your mobile, tablet, in the middle of the night. Right away. Or if you have half an hour to spare, to ask each other: hey, how are you today? Online, the same people are always there for you.”

Waiting, together with your partner

That waiting feels helpless, waiting for a positive story, for your body. How can you stay involved together? Maybe it starts with the small gestures. Like staying awake together for the required pricks in the evening or an embrace while taking a prick. Having your partner by your side in the tough moments. We’ll tell you more about its value in the next article.
