As previously mentioned, stress from infertility may not be overcome, but a professional can help you learn to manage the emotional component by offering cognitive restructuring tools, teaching relaxation techniques and providing an environment to vent negativity and receive validation. Therapy can also assist in partner communication and help increase partner understanding and compassion.
Group therapy with other individuals and/or couples may also be a helpful resource. Sharing in an environment with people who are also in a similar situation can be very nurturing. Feeling understood can be quite healing.
