10 Tips To

Cope with Infertility

  1. Be realistic… What can I do to help my body fall pregnant is more helpful than thinking positively or negatively.

  2. Aim for balance… Divide time to work, relationships, hobbies, family and other healthy choices.

  3. Maintain inner health… Choose healthy food, healthy weight range, balance alcohol and external chemicals, so mind is clear, body is healthy to deal with any situation.

  4. Minimize external toxins… Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, or food that may contain bacteria are contributing factors to unhealthy pregnancies.

  5. Make sex more than reproduction… Include in your relationship intimacy and love making to ensure relationships receive attention as well as procreation.

  6. Talk to someone… Sharing your thoughts and feelings feel less isolating and include empathy.

  7. Don't compare… Every person's body and situation is different, what works for some may not apply to your body's needs.

  8. Self care… Massage, manicures, exercise & time –out are examples of self care which is important in looking after yourself.

  9. Consider Acupuncture… Acupuncture is one alternative health that research supports having a positive influence on infertility.

  10. Consider Counselling… Talk to a professional with understanding, respect and no judgements.
