The impact of psychological factors on in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes: a comprehensive review
This comprehensive review explores the significant impact of psychological factors on the outcomes of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatments. Despite the advancements in medical technology enhancing the physical success rates of IVF procedures, the psychological well-being of individuals undergoing these treatments plays a crucial role in their overall effectiveness. This paper delves into the various psychological stressors faced by couples, including anxiety, depression, and stress, and their direct correlation with IVF treatment outcomes. By examining a wide range of studies, this review highlights the importance of psychological interventions and support systems in improving the success rates of IVF treatments. Furthermore, it discusses the current gaps in the literature and suggests directions for future research. The findings of this review underscore the necessity of integrating psychological care into fertility treatments to address the mental health needs of individuals undergoing IVF, thereby enhancing their quality of life and increasing the likelihood of successful outcomes. Through a detailed analysis of existing research and methodologies, this paper aims to contribute to the understanding of the psychosocial aspects of IVF and encourage the development of more holistic treatment approaches.
