If fertility or infertility is a concern for you now, the chances are that you have been trying to become pregnant for some time. Or perhaps you are concerned about your age and feel that the pressure is on to get results now i. e. conceive, enjoy healthy pregnancy and safe, gentle birth.
Effect of Fertility Challenges On Your Relationship
And when you get on that wheel of fertility (or infertility), it is easy for everything else to lose its place. Dates stand out like skyscrapers on a village skyline.
Now ovulation is opportunity that must be taken. Menstruation comes to signal that the seed you have sown did not bear fruit. There is a sense of urgency around your cycle, sex and everything in between. And often this takes its toll on your relationship. Sex can become more about optimising chances of conceiving than the pleasure of loving each other and experiencing intimacy.
Sometimes there might be more sex but far less closeness and fun. This too begins to add to the challenges in fertility, because you might begin to doubt your relationship or your love for this person.
Re-connecting with your Partner To Enhance Fertility
Take a moment and a deep breath. Allow yourself to relax. And start focusing on your relationship again. Take the time just to be with each other with no agenda regardless of the date. Remember all that you love about this person. Make a list. Feel grateful and share that with him or her.
Re-connect with your partner as the man or woman you love rather than a component necessary for having a baby. Really go into that space. And stay there. Focus on the love you feel. Recall how loved you are. Now you are pointed in the right direction. Give yourselves time now to enjoy each other and celebrate what you do have now.
From this place of love and relaxation, it is so much easier for you to experience success in fertility and pregnancy. You also have more solid foundations to move forward when baby does come.
