The psychology of infertility

According to statistics, about 30% of all infertile couples cannot conceive a child solely for psychological reasons. Indeed, in the overwhelming majority of patients with infertility, various disorders of the psychoemotional sphere are revealed: a feeling of inferiority, loneliness, hysterical states while waiting for a new cycle, a sense of guilt. Characteristics of a woman’s character, increased anxiety, high or, conversely, low responsibility, family culture and traditions, the experience of previous generations (“family scenarios”), advice and edification of others have a negative impact on a woman.

In addition, having started the treatment process, the couple is faced with a “test of strength” in the form of successive examinations, sometimes long-term treatment, anxiety, often high material costs, prohibitions and restrictions in their sexual life, unfulfilled hopes and griefs. It is quite natural that this leads to conflict situations within the family, a difficult home situation and worries. In fact, the couple is in a permanent state of stress.

The psychologist of our clinic is engaged in the task of identifying the psychological component of the problem of infertility, which often does not directly concern the birth of children.

It should also be noted that the psychologist works both with the psychological causes of infertility and with the psychological consequences that are caused by the very fact of infertility and the circumstances accompanying the treatment.

Changing your condition for the better is the first thing to do in preparation for future parenting. After all, the success of IVF directly depends on the psychological state of the woman or the couple as a whole. The more harmonious it is, the higher the likelihood of pregnancy.

Factors of psychological infertility:

  • Stress;
  • Depression:
  • Fears;
  • Guilt;
  • Neurosis;
  • Voltage;
  • Shame.

* Statistics of the LADA clinic: the effectiveness of IVF infertility treatment with the participation of a professional psychologist increases by an average of 15%.
