Coping with the Emotional Impact of Infertility

 If you and your partner have been trying to have a baby with no success, it can be very frustrating and disappointing. Suspecting that you might be infertile can be an emotionally trying time for new couples and parents who are trying to have additional children.

How can you stay positive during this experience? How can you prevent strain on your relationship? Infertility issues can result in frustration, anxiety, and grief. Some couples may have a hard time admitting a problem exists, or don’t want to seek out medical help.

At Midwest Fertility and Gender Selection Center, we believe that infertility is important to address through both medical and emotional support. By communicating throughout the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment phases, many couples find that their relationship grows stronger.

One of the key factors in diagnosing infertility is to seek medical advice as soon as you suspect there could be an issue. It doesn’t help anything by waiting. Sometimes a simple conversation with your attending physician or OB/GYN, can help point you in the right direction. If you have not conceived within one year of unprotected intercourse, it may be time for professional discussion.

Couples experiencing infertility should remember that great strides have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of this situation. In fact, many treated couples have succeeded in having a baby.
Sometimes, it’s not IF you’ll ever conceive, but rather, HOW.
