Depression– follower of infertility

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

According to the above mentionedresearch and clinical studies, no less than 55% of the entire number of patients who take active part in therapies, both mind and body innature, get pregnant in no more than six months, unlike the 20% of thosepatients belonging to a control group. And it has to be admitted that these arenot insignificant numbers at all. What is also encouraging is the fact that thesetherapies have a twofold effect. Namely, those women who suffer from depressiondue to inability to conceive experience lowered success when it comes to thetreatment of infertility. And by treating and attempting to cure depression, thechances for a woman to get pregnant can increase significantly.

Leavesadness behind

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

One otheraspect of infertility is that it brings to the test relationships, since thetreatment therapies have the potential to exude effect on more levels, thusinfluencing a lot more aspects of the relationship between the two people.


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