Coping with Infertility as a Couple

Infertility can be extremely hard on a couple's relationship.


Struggles can bring us closer or push us apart. It helps me to remember that my husband and I are in this together...after all, it takes "two to tango" Through infertility, sometimes the dance gets complicated and you end up stepping on each others feet...

Something that has really helped my husband and I is just taking time out for ourselves. We love doing things that will take our minds off of the stress and just "life" in general. Sometimes I think I get focused on the things that I don't have and forget all the things that I have that make life better. It's good for us to keep the romance alive. Especially when the "romance" can get killed by timing, pills, injections, tests, emotions, and so on.

There is a blog that has so many great date activities for couples. The blog is called
KEEPING ROMANCE ALIVE.
It offers date ideas and small daily challenges to help you keep romance in your life. As I ran across it today, a good friend of mine was featured and she has given some helpful information on the topic of dealing with infertility as a couple.

We have done a few of them and it has helped me remember that through the difficult times, I still have my husband--- one of my biggest sources of strength and support.

(I also ran across THIS today on the Resolve website.)

Ok, I just found your blog by accident. THANK HEAVENS!!! How reassuring someone else with the same religious beliefs is going through a similar situation although different. My husband and I just had our 2nd anniversary of 'trying' with no success. I have been in denial about myself and body. I read one of your posts from months ago and finally feel like I have the strength to make a doctor's appointment. Thank you.
