Dealing with Infertility

Many emotions arise during fertility treatment that can cause stress not just to you, but also to your spouse. Making sure that you take care of yourself as well as your marriage is important and can make your overall journey much easier when coping with infertility and pregnancy outcomes as a couple. We have provided some tips on how to communicate with your partner through the struggles of dealing with infertility.

True Quality Time

Be sure to take the time to really connect with one another. Hint: sitting on the couch together watching TV doesn’t count as connecting. Make a date to grab lunch, take a walk on the beach or go for a long peaceful drive together – any activity that gives you the space to share, laugh and reconnect.

Understanding Your Partner

This is likely a stressful time for you. It’s important to remember that your partner is going through a tough time too. At least once a day, put your full focus on their emotions: ask them how they are feeling and what you can do to help them through this.

Fertility Support

When emotions run high when dealing with infertility, it can help to have a neutral and knowledgeable person help you to navigate through this period. That’s why we encourage all of our fertility patients to take advantage of the three complimentary counseling sessions we offer for full fertility support. Our fertility counselors have tremendous experience in helping couples cope with infertility through fertility resources, tools, and more to couples going through treatment to ease lines of communication.
