Depression – follower of infertility

Whenthinking about it a bit more and deeper, the fact that such a condition as infertility is most often accompanied by depression comes as no surprise. However, there has been more effort invested in discovering and dealing with those aspects of infertility that are physical in nature, whereas to those more psychological ones that a blind eye has been turned to. As the numerous researches done in the past couple of years have indicated, the importance of the emotional condition of a person in question is much more significant, and even vital in the successful treatment of infertility.

According to the above mentioned research and clinical studies, no less than 55% of the entire number of patients who take active part in therapies, both mind and body in nature, get pregnant in no more than six months, unlike the 20% of those patients belonging to a control group. And it has to be admitted that these are not insignificant numbers at all. What is also encouraging is the fact that these therapies have a twofold effect. Namely, those women who suffer from depression due to inability to conceive experience lowered success when it comes to the treatment of infertility. And by treating and attempting to cure depression, the chances for a woman to get pregnant can increase significantly.

Leavesadness behind

Asyou may have already noticed, depression caused by the inability to conceive is quite dissimilar from the common depression. This particular type of depression is a mixture of more than one emotion and thus more intense, namely present are not only sadness, but, also anger, grief and jealousy. Another burden for women who have the misfortune of not being able to conceive is that, even in those most supportive of marriages, quite often a husband is not really capable of comprehending and grasping the state a woman is in and the kind of state she is going through.

One other aspect of infertility is that it brings to the test relationships, since the treatment therapies have the potential to exude effect on more levels, thus influencing a lot more aspects of the relationship between the two people.


Giventhe gravity of the entire condition, as well as the possible consequences it may have on both spouses, it is often fairly difficult to determine just one specific approach and expect it to be effective. This is the main reason why therapists and experts opt for some sort of an eclectic approach, with the emphasis on incorporation of emotional support that plays a vital role in the entire matter.
