Kentucky Infertility Support
An infertility diagnosis can be more than a physical strain—it can also cause you emotional challenges as well.
You may find yourself going through a whole range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, fear, and worry. These are all perfectly normal feelings to have during this time. But at what point should you consider seeing an infertility therapist?
If you experience persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or worthlessness, start to lose interest in everyday activities, or notice a change in your weight, appetite, or sleep habits, you may want to consider making an appointment with an infertility therapist.

Seeing an Infertility Therapist in Kentucky
The type of therapy session you attend can depend on the style of the therapist you choose. Some prefer to meet with you one on one, while others would rather meet with you and your partner together. Some therapists may also recommend group meetings as a way for you to interact with others in a similar situation.
Even if only one person in the relationship is going through treatment, having both partners attend counseling can certainly be helpful. Not only does it teach both partners ways to communicate more effectively, but it also provides both of them with a safe place for them to share their feelings. Many times, those not undergoing treatment feel hesitant to say how much infertility is affecting them, so this allows more open communication among both partners.
Seeing an infertility therapist can help you talk through any parts of your life that are causing you stress, whether it’s your relationship, your work, or even your finances.
