infertility therapy at Silver Lake Psychology
Contrary to what most people think, Infertility goes beyond the medical condition and the inability to conceive a child. Infertility is, in fact, an emotional struggle that deals with the pain and suffering of losing or not being able to conceive a child. The pressures of the society as well as the burden of knowing you won’t be able to bear a child is a complicated grief process because it is almost the same as losing a child. When the emotional pain becomes unbearable, the condition may affect your behavior, your relationships with your family and friends, your outlook in life, and your overall perspective about yourself. It is great to have a strong support system involving your family, friends, and medical health professionals. But sometimes, these are not enough. Support from psychologists and counselors may be needed to help you manage the emotional stress associated with infertility or the treatment process itself.
