Coping with Your Feelings

You may feel guilty, sad, or angry because you are having trouble conceiving a child. You may begin to feel envious of other couples who are pregnant or have children. You may be tired of having sex on a scheduled basis. These feelings are completely normal but you should try to not let them take over your life. Keep things in perspective and ask for support.

Dealing with Social Situations

People may unintentionally ask you when you will expand your family. Although you interpret this as hurtful, remember they have no idea what you are going through. If you don’t want to talk about it you don’t have to, but it may be helpful to explain your situation.

Nurturing Your Relationship

Fertility problems can strain even the most grounded relationships. Supporting each other is very important. It is important not to blame each other but rather listen and share your feelings with each other.


Muskego infertility treatments and support You may have been doing infertility treatments for quite some time. It may be worthwhile to consider taking a break to relieve some of the pressure you are feeling. This can give you a fresh outlook on other alternatives you may consider. Medical science does not have the really deep answers. We are ever grateful for the surprises of life. Consider the patient who gives up short of her goal only to find herself pregnant in a "rebound cycle" soon after ovulation drugs are withdrawn. Ponder the patient who finally starts the adoption process and then finds herself pregnant! These are a few of the majestic moments we physicians and our patients are delighted to encounter in our mutual journey in reproductive medicine!


What the Future Holds

There is no one right path for fertility problems. The more you know, the easier the road can be so learn your options, share your thoughts and be honest with yourself and your partner. Allow a buoyant sense of humor to carry you over this turbulent sea as you sail toward your goal. Infertility is just one more scene in this human comedy called "life." The encounter becomes one more destination in the journey of your resilient soul.
