Central awareness

Reproducción Asistida y Fertilidad Funcional

Central awareness in assisted reproduction treatments

We all know cases of couples that have not been able to make their dream come true of being pregnant until they have not given up. Yes, until they have not given up after years of assisted reproduction treatments, fertility treatments, inseminations, In Vitro Fecundations… And it was the, perhaps when they were filling the adoption papers, when the great surprise of pregnancy happened.

In those cases, we usually say that this pregnancy has been possible because they relaxed themselves after they’ve left the assisted reproduction treatment, because the stress of this was not there anymore. And this is reason enough: That is exactly what has happened. Because one of the main reasons that causes infertility that we see is the central awareness, a chronic stress state where you are in a permanent state of alert.

I can't get pregnant

Every routine, from working out to feeding, from sleep hours to making love, are filled both with hope and fear.

This alarm situation is shown in the way of obsesion: this limitation, that conditions every aspect of our lives, is thought of all day, why can’t I get pregnant, why can’t we have a child. Every routine, from working out to feeding, from sleep hours to making love, are filled both with hope and fear. Our day to day is on hold until the pregnancy happens. And that constant tension reduces fully our fertility.

In order for you to understand, think that the nervous system is subdivided in two functions:

  • Survival of the individual
  • Survival of the specie

Whenever our brain senses that permanent alarm state, it reads that your survival is in danger and it stops the reproductive instinct; It prioritize the survival of the specie its more relevant to protect yourself. That is why, when you finally decide to give up, when your guard is low, is far more simpler that a pregnancy happens.
