Welcome to TAHE FERTILIDAD’s psychological support unit. We are responsible for guiding you though the entire process of any treatment from the first step. We will help you overcome any doubts, fears and worries, to ensure that your time with us is as easy as possible. Our objective is to enable you to be in the best emotional condition during your treatment, so that you are never tempted to abandon treatment due to emotional discomfort. We strive to cover not only your physical needs but also your emotional ones.
Psychology and Sterility
Sterility affects 2 in every 10 couples of reproductive age. Studies carried out on people undergoing assisted reproduction treatment show that the problems related to infertility and the treatment itself can cause a high level of stress and anxiety. It is vital to know where you can go for emotional support during your treatment.
When a couple decides to try for a child and after some time is unsuccessful, they can begin to ask questions. Something that seems to be taken for granted and as an easy step can become something of an enigma. This makes the whole issue much bigger, as a couple and as two individuals, and causes many emotions, including pain, sadness, denial, doubt, loneliness, to name a few, and can raise questions such as why is this happening, or why is this affecting me? This can be the beginning of a journey through obstacles that result in many emotional and personal questions.
Women who decide to have a baby without a partner and same-sex couples also have to traverse many emotional and personal obstacles.
We take care of you
- when you are wondering if something is wrong in your relationship because you can’t get pregnant.
- when you first arrive at the centre, full of doubts and questions.
- when you have already attempted several treatments and you come looking for another team of professionals.
- when you are worried about being a single parent and you have to face your fears.
- when you are a homosexual couple who have decided to have a baby.
- when you have to resort to gamete donation (for men as well as women).
- when there is an inherited illness that might be passed on.
- when you think you might not be able to cope and you don’t know what to do.
Any of these situations, experienced by individuals and couples, can raise feelings that are difficult to cope with. At the psychological support unit we are here to help you deal with these emotions, that can surface at any stage of your treatment. Everybody has their own way of dealing with their situation, and we will accompany you and provide personalised help. You can rely on a range of resources from the first stages of your treatment, and we can anticipate your needs so you don’t have to wait until you can’t take any more before you look for support.
