Unfortunately, bad things sometimes happen to good people. Very often infertile couples have the question: why us, why is everything so unfair?
Everyone has their own understanding of the ideal life, but basically the rules are still the same: we all want to get an education, build a successful career and, of course, create a full family with a child. This picture of the future seems so natural that when serious problems with conceiving a child arise, it is hard to believe it at first. Because of this, problems with overcoming such a problem as infertility arise. First of all, treating infertility requires a huge amount of time and effort, which can sometimes be difficult to find.
Infertility can be difficult to cope with because women, instead of simply treating it as a medical problem, consider it primarily a serious personal problem and rarely tell their friends or even family about it. As a result, the woman is left without the moral support that is so necessary during fertility treatment. Unfortunately, the difficulty is that infertility requires a woman to undergo many tests, to take hormones, all of which ultimately deprive the woman of control over her own body. This is the main psychological problem with infertility.
Prolonged infertility treatment also takes a serious financial toll; many women are forced to quit their jobs because they fear that it is the work-related stress that prevents them from conceiving. Unfortunately, the opposite often happens as a result: the woman focuses too much on her problem, from which she could have been distracted by work. Numerous forums where women suffering from infertility communicate give some valuable advice on how to cope with this problem.
REMEMBER THAT THINGS CAN BE WORSE
Just look at people who are much less fortunate than you are and you can, if not accept infertility, at least be happy with what you already have. We are all used to striving for the best, success, wealth and so on. But sometimes it’s worth looking around and seeing people who don’t have what you have. It’s not that you have no right to grieve just because there is someone unhappier than you. The point is that when you empathise with someone else’s problem, your own problem starts to seem a lot easier to you. Perhaps if you reach out to someone who needs it more than you do, your life will become a lot easier. In this way, you will find the strength for a new round of infertility struggles.
