What is happening to my mind?

Involuntary childlessness/Infertility - a special psychological situation

The diagnosis of a fertility disorder first of all relates to physical factors. However, a couple who want a child and can't get pregnant naturally, are suddenly placed in a special psychological situation: A natural, existential desire is no longer feasible without medical help.

Coping with powerlessness, uncertainty and insecurity
This results in very different tasks for the mind. It must cope with feelings of helplessness, uncertainty and insecurity. But it must also look for solutions and possibly modify them over and over again. Each person manages this to a different degree. Many of those affected can see involuntary childlessness as a challenge and undergo the treatment with a positive mindset.

Mastering inner tension and restlessness, anxiety and depression levels
Other patients, however, experience infertility as a type of threat which can lead to symptoms such as inner tension and restlessness, anxiety and depression levels during the reproductive medical treatment. These symptoms can occur regardless of the success of the medical treatment. Both patients who can be helped to conceive a child, as well as patients whose infertility is unfortunately not treatable, can develop such symptoms.
