When To Seek Counseling
Often people lean on their closest friends and family during difficult moments of their lives, but sometimes that is just not enough. Needing additional support while struggling with infertility, perinatal mood disorders or reproductive issues is completely normal. Research shows that women experiencing emotional pain stemming from infertility is similar to those dealing with cancer, HIV, and chronic pain. Some indicators of needing additional support include: overwhelming and persistent thoughts regarding the issue, anxieties, social isolation, conflict within relationships as well as thoughts of suicide or death.
