Surviving Infertility

Going through infertility may seem like a rollercoaster ride when you calculate the time, worry, cost, and strain on your relationship.  We know that sometimes trying to conceive may take a toll on your relationships.

Daily stresses including physical, financial, and emotional may be felt – you are not alone. Trying to get pregnant may be consuming at times with cycle monitoring, tracking, and possible anxiety of preparation for treatment may creep into every waking moment.  Focusing on nurturing your relationships may help.

Here are some tips to help nurture your relationships while trying to conceive?

Communicate, communicate, and communicate.

Try communicating with your partner as much as possible so the two of you are on the same page.  Each person experiences and copes with the trying to conceive (TTC) differently; not to mention that one of you is likely taking on much more of the physical burden.

The end goal is to continuously hear and understand one another by validating one’s feelings. Try to check-in regularly and be clear with one another about what you need and how you can best support each other.  What works for one person may not work for another – and that is ok.  Honesty and transparency are the best ways forward.

Building a family

When you are TTC, it is important to remember why you want to build a family together in the first place. Take the time to do the things that you like doing together.  For example, dinners out, hiking, or weekends away could help with finding some time away from your infertility issues.

Being patient for your long-awaited baby may not be easy.
