The diagnosis of infertility can invoke many uncomfortable feelings of anxiety, sadness, inadequacy, frustration, stress and more. These feelings can affect both men and women and can get in the way of the excitement and anticipation of starting a family.
All of these feelings are natural, but some patients may need additional support to overcome them when undergoing infertility treatments to achieve pregnancy. If you feel you would benefit from psychological support to make your dream of a family a reality, please contact us. We provide support on site at our office in San Francisco or we can provide a referral to a therapist specializing in the challenges encountered with fertility treatment.
