For some people, having children does not always follow a straightforward, natural process.

It can be distressing to find that you or your partner have a fertility problem. Fertility issues are often unexpected.

Fertility issues are more and more common these days, with many couples finding that starting a family is not as easy as they once thought.

While there are a number of treatment options for fertility issues these days, some people find that fertility problems and infertility treatments can be upsetting and distressing. Relationships often struggle under the stress and uncertainty that fertility issues can bring,

Both infertility and its treatment can feel overwhelming

Finding our that one partner in your relationship has fertility problems can be confusing and disappointing news. Suddenly, plans for starting a family feel uncertain and challenging.

There are different kinds of fertility problems for both men and women and various treatments that may be used for these problems.

While counselling and psychotherapy are not considered as treatment options for fertility problems, therapy can be very helpful in reducing the stress and other feelings that often come with infertility. Therapy together with infertility treatment can lead to good outcomes.

Fertility problems affect both men and women

Both men and women can experience emotional or psychological distress when facing fertility problems and when considering infertility treatments. Infertility and its treatment may bring about feelings of fear and anxiety.

A sense of loss, anger, denial, shame, jealousy, fear of abandonment and feelings of being less masculine or less feminine are just some of the feelings people with fertility problems sometimes experience.

Therapy can help alleviate these feelings and challenge negative thinking associated with fertility problems.

Learn more about personal therapy

"I learned a lot about myself and about the relationships I make with other people. I was able to see where I was going wrong and I now make better personal choices. Thank you, again."

"I was able to confront many issues which I had so far chosen to ignore despite their negative effects on my personal relationships and happiness. I would have no hesitation in recommending (One Therapy) to anyone looking to improve their relationships and self-esteem."

My therapist was completely non-judgemental which allowed me to be totally honest in the sessions and say how I was feeling without reservation. I felt comfortable talking with him and it was a really valuable experience that I would thoroughly recommend.

Therapy helped me through a difficult time. I gained so much insight into myself and my life. My first experience of therapy was excellent. I am so grateful to One Therapy for this.
