“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.
