Myth 1:

Infection or vaccines affect fertility "This is the biggest myth floating around. The answer is no proof to show that the infection or vaccine impacts fertility. Of course, would-be moms getting IVF treatment need to be tested before e treatment process. Treatment process for those tested positive gets cancelled.

Myth 2:

Covid vaccines aren't safe during IVF treatment This is another myth keeping women away from vaccines while undergoing IVF treatment. Medical organisations have confirmed the approved vaccines’ safety for those taking the treatment. "Choosing to delay the treatment should not be an option. Since there are already complications leading for women to take this treatment, delay will further put them in critical position. It may be sensible to separate the date of vaccination by a few days from treatment procedure like egg collection so that any symptoms such as fever may be correctly attributed to the vaccine and not the treatment procedure .

Myth 3:

There can be a delay in the IVF treatment due to the ongoing pandemic Due to myriad reasons, women have difficulty in conceiving. That is why IVF treatment has found such popularity. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, many assume it is better to delay the treatment in the current scenario. This is fortunately a myth. Most reproductive age patients are not high risk and thus should not avoid delay. Most reputed IVF centres follow rigorous safety measures to ensure successful treatment. The medical fraternity involved are keen to make sure that a woman’s motherhood dreams can be fulfilled via IVF. This is particularly true for women with advanced ag and couples trying for many years unsuccessfully.

Myth 4:

Coronavirus affects pregnancy This myth has hit most women who have successfully got pregnant via IVF treatment. But the studies show otherwise. "The infection risk is same for every woman, pregnant or not. It has also been seen scientifically that the infection does not pass to the children via the mother. Those choosing to be parents in the COVID-19 scenario can now relax and go ahead with their plans with regards IVF treatment. There is a higher risk of preterm delivery. The new virulent strain seems to affect the respiratory system harder in some pregnant women. Like others strict precautions, vaccination and timely medical care must be taken.
