Infertility is not easy to cope with. To make things worse, you may hear from friends or family that your anxiety is causing the infertility. But this is not true. While researchers once thought that stress caused infertility, more recent studies do not make this connection.
Understanding the typical emotions most couples experience during fertility treatment can help you prepare for the challenges ahead. It does not mean you will be immune to the rollercoaster of emotions, however knowing that you’re not ‘strange’ or ‘alone’ in what you’re feeling can make all the difference.
And we are here to help you, every step of the way.
