Trying to get pregnant

Most likely, you were not prepared for the level of distress which builds while trying to get pregnant. The more time that goes by, the harder it is to maintain emotional balance. The goal of becoming a parent begins to take over your life.

It is completely normal to feel anger, frustration or helplessness. Even so, it makes for miserable day-to-day living. As all semblance of “normal life” slips away, your feelings may intensify. Anxiety and depression may interfere with daily functioning. Undergoing fertility treatment can be a long and unpredictable journey. You deserve both clear information AND strong support.
