Counselling for Infertility Patients

Infertility is one of the most stressful life crises that a couple can face.

Among the top issues that contribute to the stress for couples in the throes of infertility are physical tests, investigations and treatment procedures, relationship challenges, financial issues, emotional issues, decision making hormone treatments and exhaustion. They frequently evoke a range of powerful feelings including anxiety, anger, stress, grief, humiliation, denial confusion, guilt, blaming and depression. Often Self esteem suffers.

Researchers have shown that infertility and stress are related to each other and even though no hard evidence has been established as to whether stress causes infertility or infertility causes stress, it is well known that the infertility process can be overwhelming. The exhausting nature of infertility treatments and related issues can lead to battles with depression and anxiety.

This can affect the way in which one copes throughout the process. The most stressful stage in couples undergoing IVF treatment is the period when they are waiting for the outcome of the treatment. As the sense of failure intensifies, the infertile couple will become more isolated from everybody and are particularly vulnerable, the danger is that they become more isolated, losing confidence going into chronic depression with acute episodes. These are often triggered by events such as birth of someone else’s baby, the announcement of a pregnancy.

Dealing with infertility normally will put infertile couple in unstable emotions. It’s not easy to make good decision in this highly stressed state. It is difficult to continue one’s normal social life and work. The relationship between a couple often is tested to the limit. To have successful IVF procedure patients should have a stable emotion. Hence every couple who decide to receive IVF treatments should attend an implication counseling with the counselor first. In this implication counseling, the counselor will briefly explain about the IVF treatment flow and stages, the importance of stability during the process, the cost and the risk that might occur. IVF counseling is an opportunity to get information and answer any questions that patients may have.

Counseling can be very beneficial, it can take the form of individual, couples or group support. Within a counseling relationship individuals can talk about what is important to them in an effort to gain some understanding which may bring clarity and perspective to their personal circumstances,

In general, counseling helps people, through which individuals and Couples are given the opportunity to explore their thoughts, emotions, reactions and beliefs with an impartial and sympathetic professional who understands the issues involved. Good counseling helps people better, it usually brings greater clarity, a broader perspective and some peace of mind. Decisions about what choice to make become less murky and are based on realism and self-knowledge. The whole process should be strictly confidential.

Therefore, it is imperative for the patients to be mentally free of all tensions before they start an infertility treatment.
