Coping with Infertility


email this

Coping with infertility and infertility treatments can be stressful. While undergoing treatment, we recognize that you may experience a variety of emotions and challenges, including sadness, anxiety, anger, confusion, self-doubt, guilt, indecision, social isolation, marital problems, and sexual difficulties. Duke Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers psychological support through the Duke Fertility Center for women and couples coping with infertility. Our specialist offers a variety of services, including fertility counseling; individual, couples, and group psychotherapy; grief and loss counseling; treatment decision-making consultation; crisis intervention; and third-party reproduction assessment (for couples needing donor egg, donor sperm, or a gestational carrier).
