Fertility challenges can come as a surprise to many couples and may result in a significant amount of stress, anxiety, and confusion. Fortunately, advanced treatment options have enabled more couples struggling with fertility to successfully conceive than ever before. There are, however, issues that can arise during the diagnostic and treatment processes that can put additional stress on an individual and on a couple. Special fertility psychologists can help couples to better cope with these issues and confront their condition with improved confidence and positivity. Could you benefit from seeing a fertility counselor? Read on to learn some reasons to consider speaking with a specialty psychologist today.
- To cope with the stresses of infertility:
Failed in vitro fertilization cycles, pregnancy loss, and other fertility struggles can all lead to stress and frustration. With the help of a fertility counselor, you can evaluate and assess your emotional health throughout the treatment process and use this information to improve your psychological and emotional state.
- To strengthen your relationships:
It is completely natural for your partner, loved ones, and friends to have very different reactions to your infertility diagnosis. This variability can lead to communicational difficulties and strains in your relationships. A fertility counselor can help you to keep your lines of communication open and your relationships strong.
- To promote healthy decision-making:
There are certain times during fertility treatment that you reach a “crossroads” and feel as if you have an overwhelming amount of options available to you. When this happens, consider seeking the advice of a counselor.
