Being on the same page

One of the tricky things about dealing with the emotional side of infertility is that each partner may be in a different phase of working out what to do. For example, your partner may be keen to start treatment, whereas you still feel angry and haven't yet reached a more constructive phase. Your different personalities can also make you handle the difficulties in different ways. One of you may want to forget all about the problem and hope that it goes away, while the other faces up to the problem and starts to look for ways to solve it.

If you and your partner aren't 'on the same page', try to find a way to move forward that works for you both. To do this you need to understand each other's position and find some middle ground. Be open with each other, be honest about your feelings and be willing to listen to your partner's point of view.
