Can having an anxiety attack during the two-week wait affect implantation?

By Olivia De Prado Trigo B.Sc., M.Sc. (psychologist).

No. According to a study carried out in Holland, anxiety levels prior to and during fertility treatment are not predictors of successful fertilization.

Therefore, suffering a panic attack during the twoo-week wait (understanding panic attack as the most intense manifestation of anxiety), does not interfere with embryo implantation. Anxiety in itself alters the emotional state of people, but it does not prevent an optimal result of the medical treatment.

It is of vital importance to attend to the psychological symptomatology that women have throughout the assisted reproduction treatments, since an emotional imbalance causes intense discomfort, even though it does not alter or modify the result of the same.
