Coping With Infertility

Coping-With-InfertilityInfertility, as defined by a couple who is unable to become pregnant after one year of unprotected sex, affects 10-15% of couples in the United States.  This may be due to a problem in one or both partners.  The emotional and physical stress of a couple experiencing infertility can lead to anxiety, depression, and significant marital problems.
One of the reasons infertility is so difficult to cope with is the fact that no one knows how long it will last or what the eventual outcome will be.  It’s important to help manage the emotional stress by talking with others.  Instead of repressing feelings of anger, guilt, or fear, try reaching out to those around you.  The support of partners, family, and friends can be very beneficial during what can be a grueling process.  Support groups and professional counseling are also available.  In fact, according to Mayoclinic.com “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which uses methods that include relaxation training and stress management, has been associated with higher pregnancy rates” during treatment.  Because no one can guarantee what the outcome will be it’s important to discuss all options with your partner.  Consider what alternative methods you’re comfortable with and at what point you’ll begin exploring them.  Treatment can be emotionally and financially challenging and many feel that setting limits beforehand is helpful.
