Let us not forget that themost important communication of all is that between the you and your spouse/partner. Infertility can impact every impact of your life. You need the love and support of others, especially your spouse/partner. Be honest and open, and do not confer blame or suffer guilt. Discussion of your concerns and fears can actually bring you closer together. Talk over every aspect of the treatment as it unfolds.


Some couplesmay choose to utilize the support and guidance of amental health professional. When choosing a counselor, it is best to find someone who has a detailed knowledge of the Infertility field. Other couples depend on the help of friends and relatives.


A few questions that youmay want to consider or ask of your healthcare provider are listed below:


• What aremy treatment alternatives?
