Impact of Physician Contact on Patient Anxiety During the Waiting Period After Embryo Transfer
“Impact of Physician Contact on Patient Anxiety During the Waiting Period After Embryo Transfer”
This will be a randomized controlled trial to compare if physician contact within the period from embryo transfer to serum pregnancy test decreases anxiety levels for first-time IVF patients.
Behavioral - Physician phone call
Often, patients will not have contact with a physician during the waiting period between embryo transfer and the pregnancy test. Participants in the intervention group will receive a phone call from one physician 3 to 4 days after fresh or frozen embryo transfer to check in. The physician will introduce themselves and state they are a part of the research team.
