Infertility and Depression: A Potent Mix You Can Avoid with Help
Do you feel sad when you see your friends/relatives and their children on occasions such birthdays and reunions, which is why you are avoiding attending these events? Do you feel like you are not getting support from your spouse despite your best effort to do everything that is needed in your fertility/conception or assisted reproductive technology treatments? Do you feel distressed, helpless and powerless because of your infertility issue?
Infertility and Depression
It is difficult not to feel sad when you want to bear or father a child more than anything in the world, yet it won’t happen. It can impact your relationship, sex life, sense of self-esteem, and day-to-day life. This is why it is common for people experiencing infertility to feel distressed and even anxious. If you are experiencing this, it will be good not to ignore your sadness, because it can already be depression.
Studies show that depression often accompanies infertility. When you are painstakingly taking time off just to go through various diagnostic and treatment procedures, but pregnancy isn’t happening, be conscious that depression may not be too far. If sadness lingers and it is already preventing you from pursuing a normal life, it will help to see a professional therapist.
Facing Your Infertility with Help
Depression can cause a lot of things in your life to go wrong. While infertility can be such a harsh reality to accept, things can get worse if you will let depression get the better of you. For one thing, nothing (your infertility included) can be solved when you allow yourself to be gripped by depression. On the contrary, a lot of your “saving graces” – a loving relationship with your spouse, family relationships, a good job or social standing, etc. – can be lost if you will let it rule your life.
It is not uncommon that people with infertility problems resort to alcohol, overeating or losing the appetite to eat sensibly, smoking, even drugs to escape the issue. These will not make thing things better. If there is something that can help, it is seeing a competent therapist.
Moving Forward the Best Way You Can
There are different reasons for infertility. It is important to seek medical help to understand what is causing your infertility. It is senseless to be depressed when your infertility is treatable. Yet, when it is something that can’t be treated with a medical procedure anymore, know that depression can make your life more miserable.
An independently contracted therapist with the Carolina Counseling Services in Fayetteville, NC can help you look at infertility as another fact of your life. Counseling can help you identify the source of your strong emotions – whether it is the need to satisfy a “life mission,” shame for not being like the people you know, etc. The most important thing is counseling can help you move forward in the best and the happiest way you can.
