Infertility and relationship: how to avoid bad things
Most of the couples are excited to get news about they’re expecting. But some of them could get problems with pregnancy. In this article we will review what problems the infertility diagnosis can bring into your relationship. You can find more articles about pregnancy and childbirth in our blog termpaper.help.
So, you have got the diagnosis that made you feel desperate. You and your partner were dreaming about baby, and you imagined yourself with a nice belly, and how your man will care about you during pregnancy. For many couples the news about their infertility could be a real shock. Yes, they already have spent years of trying, but they kept a hope this problem will be solved. When they have an official paper with the word “infertility”, their hope gets less. The couple becomes more stressed and the relationship could be damaged. Here are some tips on how to save your relationship from stress and be in a good connection with your partner:
- Don’t try to blame anyone. Whether you or your husband is infertile, don’t blame each other because you wouldn’t be able to change anything, but you may hurt your partner. Don’t discuss fault, but try to discuss what you two are going to do (try infertility treatments, think about adoption, etc.)
- Discuss your feelings and try to understand each other better. Tell each other about your fears and needs, be always honest and open in it. Ask your partner for support and emotional help, tell each other about your anger and frustration, together you will be able to pass through difficulties easier.
- Don’t try to bring this problem everywhere. Schedule your dates where you will discuss anything else but not the infertility issue. It’s great if you can support each other emotionally, but sometimes you need a break from your problem.
- Most of the couples who are infertile, start to associate intimacy with only reproducing. As a result, you two can’t be fully relaxed, and you focus only on the one thing — will it work out today? Try to make intimacy spontaneous, enjoy being together and refresh your relationship with something new. Make a romantic date at home or rent a room in the luxury hotel for the one night.
- Try to take a break from your thoughts how to get pregnant. Sometimes even healthy couples can have a problem with getting pregnant because they are concentrated on it too much. When they stop to think about it, they usually get a result very unexpectedly.
- Don’t be shy to ask for help. Your partner loves you, but he or she can’t read your thoughts. If you want him to calm you down, don’t hide from him in the bathroom waiting he would come to check if you are having a good cry there again.
- Respect your partner’s reaction. If your husband doesn’t talk about the infertility for hours, it doesn’t mean he is not hurting. If your wife cries in the bathroom every evening, it doesn’t mean she wants you to feel bad. Just don’t forget to talk to your partner and be supportive and understanding.
