Technology changes quickly, so it is helpful to be on top of all the newest treatment types. Do some research yourself, or ask your fertility specialist to answer any questions you may have.
Support yourself and your partner as this can be a most stressful time. Exercise, eat healthily, find time to relax and decompress—maybe a massage or some other indulgent treatment—meditate or utilize whatever types of activities that bring you comfort and ease stress.
It can be easy to play the blame game, so be mindful of any negative thought processes about your partner and communicate with one another in a non-critical manner. Typically, when you don't express your feelings, they tend to come out in another way.
Arguments, snapping at one another, isolating or avoiding may occur due to lack of healthy expression of feelings.
Being aware of this and taking extra time to give love and support to one another is crucial.
