Counseling psychology and emotional support
It is very common that couples with difficulty to conceive a child experience feelings of sadness, reject the company of friends or refuse to attend events where children might be involved and in general tend to live situations of anguish and difficulty in handling emotional conflicts, caused by the reproductive difficulty.
The couple’s relationship is subject to stress due to the fact that they are undergoing assisted reproduction treatment. Some couples have a history of failed attempts and manifest despair and fatigue, feel helpless, and believe that there is no solution. Similarly, the support of a professional may be necessary to develop decision-making strategies, which is one of the aspects that generates anxiety in patients once they start the diagnostic and treatment processes, since they often have to handle difficult situations such as accepting a negative diagnosis or a treatment involving donation of gametes.
Many fertility related medical societies around the world point out that the emotional state of people undergoing assisted reproduction treatments influences their results, which is why it is very important to use techniques and strategies to control the stressful impact of the treatment and carry out your treatment cycle in the best possible way and with the best possible quality of life.
