We live in a quick fix society and when we ‘want’ something we usually want it quickly.
Maybe you once thought of yourself as patient and but after several months of that stick not turning pink those tolerant feelings have disappeared and impatience has reared its head.
If you’re in good health, exercising regularly and reading every article possible and still no positive result but the reality is, pregnancy may not happen immediately but that doesn’t automatically mean you’re infertile.
Impatience can show you when:
• Nature isn’t responding to you month after month and you thought it would happen more quickly
• You are questioning if there is something wrong with you or your partner that you can’t get pregnant naturally
• Your ‘trying to get pregnant’ intimacy is not the same as ‘enjoying yourself’ intimacy, it’s procreation to a timetable
• You’ve bought every ovulation gadget, app and off the shelf product available.
• The NHS appointment hasn’t come through so you are researching IVF clinics
Impatience is normal for anyone who desires parenthood. It’s tricky when you want something so much but unfortunately fertility isn’t instant and it needs a different thought process, it needs PATIENCE.
What can we do about it?
Patience, patience. If you’re not getting pregnant right away, you’re not alone. It takes time, even for the healthiest couples. Try not to obsess, which will only make the time pass more slowly.
Focus more on things outside of conceiving, your work, your hobbies, your partner, your health. Relax when it comes to being with your partner, stress, obsession and constantly taking your temperature can take away the pleasure of being together. Do something fun and plan different activities the key is to avoid a tense do-or-die atmosphere.
There’s a balance between being patient and continuing to try forever so seek support when you feel you need it from a fertility expert who can help you along your path.
