Psychological Support for Fertility Issues

Fertility Support

Life doesn’t often go as we have planned. Being diagnosed with infertility is one of the greatest challenges you or your partner will ever have to face. Talking to someone can help you learn to manage the emotions, stress, frustration and relationship issues that may arise during this difficult period. Whether you opt to undergo fertility treatment or look at alternative options such as surrogacy or adoption, it helps to seek caring, confidential and professional advice. Sometimes just getting the issues out in the open can help you see realistic solutions. Don’t suffer in silence, talk to someone today.

Infertility can affect your relationships at home, at work and with friends and family. It can have a negative impact on your self-esteem as you question why conceiving is harder for you than others or worry about what sort of future you and your partner will have without children. It may impact your social life as you shy away from seeing friends or family who have children or who may be pregnant. Understanding that these emotions and reactions are normal is one step toward accepting and treating the situation.
