Infertility is more than a physical issue. Many people who have difficulty when trying to conceive have emotional issues as well. Not being able to have children on your own can be depressing and stressful. These issues can be compounded when there is family pressure or a sense of guilt. Often, the emotional struggle of infertility is just as big of an issue as the physical component. Thankfully, you don’t have to take this journey alone. Selecting a NYC therapist that deals with infertility can make the treatment process easier to handle. However, knowing which therapist is ideal for your specific needs can be difficult. The information below can help make your selection process easier.
Many medical insurance policies provide coverage for mental health treatment, including therapy. This may be true even if you do not have health care coverage for your infertility treatment. Be sure to select a therapist who is in network for your insurer in order to maximize your benefits.
One of the best ways to find a health care provider, including therapists, is to ask for recommendations from your friends and family members. These individuals will be able to provide a level of insight about the therapist’s practices and philosophies.
Your Fertility Center
Many fertility centers are able to provide a level of support for the emotional side of fertility treatment. This can include support groups, therapy sessions, yoga, and acupuncture. Additionally, your fertility center may have a therapist on staff who is uniquely qualified to deal with the specialized focus of infertility. Even if your fertility center does not have a therapist onsite, they may have partnerships with therapists that they’ve had success with in the past. It is important to be upfront with your fertility care team as they have a wealth of resources available for their patients.
