Seeing an Infertility Therapist
Many times, seeing an infertility therapist should be a priority for both partners in a relationship, even if only one person is actually undergoing the fertility treatments. This allows both partners the opportunity to share their feelings—something that may otherwise be difficult for the partner who is not receiving treatment. Seeing an infertility therapist can help partners learn ways to improve their communication. This can give each a better knowledge of what their partner is going through.
Your infertility therapist may encourage you to attend some sessions together, or may prefer to see you separately. He or she may also recommend you attend group sessions so you can interact with others who are going through similar situations.
Whatever session type your infertility therapist prefers, seeing a specialist can help you sort out your feelings and teach you ways to deal with the stress that comes with an infertility diagnosis, whether it stems from relationship issues, work problems, or financial concerns.
