The Multifaceted Aspects of Infertility

Tracy K. Syiem, K. Jayashankar Reddy

Infertility even though a medical condition, is considered as a biopsychosocial crisis and been prevalent for many decades. The World Health Organization estimated that about 10-25 % of couples have infertility problems. The multifaceted dimensions of infertility have been seen to engulf an individuals life completely right from emotional, physical, social and financial domains. The diagnosis can often take the couple by surprise which disrupts their future plans and goals leading to increased stress with themselves and their partner. A couples start to the infertility journey starts from the time they try to conceive, however, it is to be noted that a successful conception may not happen in the first treatment cycle itself. This then leads to a loop of yet another journey of tremendous emotional rollercoaster for the couple. The journey of infertility treatment can bring about ample amount of distress within the individual, the partner and the society at large. The vicious cycle of hope and despair whilst taking the treatment can bring about elevated levels of stress and anxiety in the patient. An Infertility Counsellor can be a very cathartic experience for the patient undergoing infertility treatment and a more holistic approach to patient care is achieved.
