South Dakota Infertility Support

An infertility diagnosis can be an emotional time. You may feel isolated from your friends or family, thinking they may not understand what you are going through. Emotional rollercoasters are common, as you may switch from guilt to anger, and sadness to anxiety.

But when should you consider seeing an infertility therapist? Generally, if you experience persistent feelings of sadness, guilt or worthlessness, loss of interest in normal activities, increased mood swings, a change in appetite, weight, or sleep patterns, or a constant preoccupation with infertility, you may benefit from seeing a counselor specially trained to help with infertility.

South Dakota Infertility Support

An infertility therapist can help you manage the emotional stress that comes with an infertility diagnosis. He or she can teach you ways to manage stress, cope with grief, and communicate more effectively with your partner so your needs are vocalized.

Attending an Infertility Support Session

You may attend a variety of different kinds of sessions, including one-on-one, where you will be speaking only to the therapist, a couple’s session, when you and your partner will attend together, or even a group meeting. Sometimes your therapist may recommend you attend a combination of these session types.

Infertility therapy is not only for the person undergoing treatment. In fact, it’s important for both partners to attend, since it can provide an outlet for the other partner to share their own fears and concerns. Attending infertility counseling can also help you and your partner learn ways to communicate more effectively.
