Emotional health and fertility go hand-in-hand, so stay mindful of your mental health during your fertility journey

While your fertility journey can be exciting, it can also be unpredictable for you and those close to you.

As many as 60% of people say their fertility diagnosis and treatment challenged their mental health.

You also may be struggling, and that is common—you are not alone. It may be helpful to have an ally by your side. Research suggests that participating in support groups or behavioral therapy can ease stress.

If you are struggling with your mental health, you should always seek professional help.

Here are 2 tips to help maintain mindfulness on your fertility journey

  • Practice open communication. Provide your fertility care team with insight into your values, your goals, and your existing support network.
  • Surround yourself with a supportive community. It is important to have a source of kindness and support on this journey.
