Coping with infertility
Discovering that you have difficulty conceiving can impact on all aspects of life.
Feelings of frustration, confusion, sadness, hopelessness and even anger may surface, whilst others may have the feelings of guilt and shame. These are all understandable and normal reactions to a situation where a patient feels out of control, with their autonomy threatened.
Learning more about your condition and the treatments available will help towards a better understanding and enable informed choices. Our fertility teams are here to help and advise, either during a formal consultation or simply a chat over the phone. Do not be afraid to ask questions, however trivial they may seem. Written information will be supplied to back up treatment options and discussions.
Counselling provides emotional support at times of particular stress, and an opportunity to discuss any concerns about your treatment with an impartial person. It is available as part of your initial decision making and at any stage of your treatment.
Apart from the counselling available through our units, you may also find it helpful to contact one of the national support groups who may put you in touch with others who have had similar treatment. Each fertility centre will be able to provide you with details of local and national support groups.
