Infertility Psychological Effects

Infertility may have profound psychological effects. Partners may become more anxious to conceive, ironically increasing sexual dysfunction.

Marital discord often develops in infertile couples, especially when they are under pressure to make medical decisions.

Women trying to conceive often have clinical depression rates similar to women who have heart disease or cancer. Even couples undertaking IVF face considerable stress.

Emotional stress and marital difficulties are greater in couples where the infertility lies with the man.
