Keeping Your Spirits Up During Fertility Treatments

Dealing with infertility can be a hard challenge for many women. Treatments are often effective but finding a solution that works can mean many months of tests and medications. For many couples trying to conceive, it's hard to stay positive. There can be days you feel discouraged, and after several appointments and methods, many people can start to lose hope.

Here are some things you can do to keep your spirits up during fertility treatment.

1. Reduce your time on social media.

Social media can seem like a good escape from your troubles, but if you follow friends and relatives, as well as get news from local sources, your feed can be full of things that trigger discouragement. You'll see more pregnancy and birth announcements from acquaintances, but you'll also get negative content from political statements and online arguments. Instead, choose to read books from the local library or call a friend to pass the time. Even if you do hear about people who are expecting a child, it won't be something you see daily when you check your phone. 

2. Rely on your doctor's advice.

This might seem like common sense, but many women struggle to actually follow the instructions of their doctor. For example, there are many apps that allow you to track or analyze your cycle. These can be helpful when you're trying to conceive without assistance, but when you're working with your doctor, you can afford to relax a bit on reading into every change you experience, especially because some medications will cause changes that may or may not have anything to do with whether or not you can expect to get pregnant. Instead, if you have concerns, talk to your doctor about them. If you're worried about what to expect, speak with your partner or with your care provider, instead of turning to application forums and internet information. You can increase your anxiety, and your treatments will consume more of your positivity this way. 

3. Make plans outside of treatment.

If you hope to go on a great vacation, plan the vacation and work your treatments around your plans. If you hope to continue with educational pursuits or employment opportunities, do so. Trying new hobbies, making new memories, and creating valuable connections with people can bring joy to you. Many women feel like they cannot do anything until the question of whether or not they will have a baby is resolved. However, continuing to live a full life can help you to embrace positive changes as they come.

Helping My Kids To Improve Their Health

I have always been one of those people who is overly concerned about parenting effectively, but a few weeks ago, I realized that my kids were really struggling with their health. They just weren't getting as much exercise as they needed, and it was really hard to watch them struggle with weight-related issues at such a young age. Fortunately, by working with our health team, we were able to create a treatment plan to improve each of our kid's lives.
