What is Infertility?

According to current research, approximately 12% of women in the United States have difficulty conceiving or sustaining a pregnancy to term and up to 6% of married women have infertility issues. 

Sometimes, it is not very clear cut why infertility persists and in such cases, perhaps more than otherwise, there is an even greater need for support and counseling.

What is Infertility Counseling?

Infertility is more than a medical diagnosis. It affects almost every aspect of your life and you may find your relationships and work suffering as you struggle to deal with the worry, anxiety, and even depression especially when you have had infertility treatments that weren’t successful.

It is extremely helpful to have the support of friends and family as well as your medical team but even these may not prevent you from occasionally feeling overwhelmed with the numerous tests, examinations, treatments, and appointments you have to keep and you may struggle to find a balance. 

You may find it difficult to confide in someone with whom you can share your feelings without feelings of guilt or fear of judgment. 

Infertility counseling can provide the much-needed support for you in this challenging time by providing a safe space for you to navigate the physical, emotional, and relational challenges of your fertility journey in a wholesome, healthy, and productive way.

You may require the services of an infertility therapist for many reasons. It may be needed before receiving fertility treatment such as egg, sperm, or embryo donation. 

The IVF process can be quite draining mentally and physically and many endocrinologists usually recommend seeing a mental health professional for counseling. The donors themselves and gestational carriers (surrogates) are also required to receive mental health counseling.

An infertility counselor has special training in working with infertility challenges even amongst LGBTQ couples and can be of immense help in sorting through your alternatives. At HWP,  you can schedule a session with any of our infertility therapists as an individual or a couple to help you explore the many ways you can cope with infertility.
