Hartford and New Haven Infertility Support
An infertility diagnosis--and the subsequent fertility treatments--can not only be physically trying, but emotionally as well. It's common to go through a wide variety of emotions, including sadness, fear, guilt, anger, and loneliness.
Seeing an infertility therapist can help you cope with these emotions. If feelings of sadness become overwhelming, and start to take over every aspect of your life, or if you noticed marked changes in sleeping, eating, or weight, you may benefit from seeing an infertility therapist.

Seeing an Infertility Therapist
Some infertility therapists prefer to meet with patients one-on-one, while others may like to see you together with your partner. Also, your infertility therapist may recommend group meetings, where you can meet with others in similar situations. Many therapists recommend a combination of these types of sessions.
Even if only one partner is going through the actual fertility treatments, it can be helpful for both to attend counseling, so both can talk about how it is affecting them as a couple. This provides an opportunity for both members of the couple to share their feelings, and can help them both learn ways to communicate more effectively.
