Wyoming Infertility Support
Being diagnosed with infertility—and going through the resulting fertility treatments—can be a stressful time. You may feel a wide variety of emotions, often changing from day to day or even from hour to hour. This is perfectly normal to experience during your family-building process, but when should you make an appointment with an infertility therapist?
If you have any of the following signs, you may benefit from meeting with a therapist who is specially trained to deal with infertility: persistent feelings of isolation, guilt, or depression, anxiety or agitation, or marital problems. If you’ve been experiencing problems with sleep or a change in weight or appetite, you may also want to consider making an appointment.
Infertility Therapists in Wyoming
Infertility therapists can help you manage the roller coaster of emotions that often follows an infertility diagnosis. For instance, you may find yourself withdrawing from your friends or family, or even from your significant other. You may struggle with communication, thinking that others may not be able to understand what you’re going through. Financial concerns may begin to arise as you begin to add up the cost of potential fertility treatments.
There are currently no infertility therapists in Wyoming who are members of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. For more information on other infertility therapists in your area, please contact your fertility clinic for recommendations.
Attending an Infertility Therapy Session
Infertility therapy sessions can take many forms. Some therapists prefer one-on-one sessions, while others may like to meet with both you and your partner together. Therapists may even utilize a combination of these types of sessions, and may even recommend you attend group sessions so you can meet others in your same situation.
Even if only one partner is undergoing the actual fertility treatments, it’s helpful for both of them to attend counseling sessions. This not only presents a more unified front, but can also help both people learn how to communicate more effectively.
Your infertility therapist will encourage you to share any feelings, worries, or concerns you may have related to your treatment. He or she will help you manage your stress, cope with grief, and work towards positive changes in your life.
