Infertility can have a profound impact on an individual’s mental health and well being.
Anyone who has struggled to start a family knows all too well the stress involved in trying to conceive. Couples and families who experience infertility often feel as though they are on an emotional roller coaster, navigating countless doctor’s appointments, fertility treatments, and medical procedures. Infertility can create feelings of hopelessness and depression, leading individuals and their partners to feel disconnected socially. Our clinicians can help individuals explore their feelings of sadness, guilt, or anger, while also focusing on positive self-care techniques and coping skills. Additionally, infertility can have an impact on relationships. A psychologist can help couples better communicate their needs, often making decision-making a smoother process.
