How Couples Can Cope with the Stress of Trying to Conceive

After a vasectomy reversal, the process of trying to conceive can be stressful for couples. Supporting each other through this emotional time will bring you closer together and help you avoid the kind of stress that can itself interfere with your efforts to conceive. Keep this advice in mind as you try to start your new family.

Admit That You’re Stressed

When you’re feeling worries about conceiving, your first instinct may be to try to push the feeling away. In reality, although you may succeed in temporarily burying it, stress will come back with a vengeance if you don’t face it head-on. Admitting to yourself and to each other that you have anxiety about the success of your vasectomy reversal and conceiving will let you deal with the way you’re feeling. Resist the urge to pretend you’re not stressed so that you can avoid a big blowup later.

Limit Your Online Time

Make a pact that you won’t spend your time surfing the internet for information about female and male infertility, pregnancy symptoms, or techniques for boosting your chances of conceiving. Although having some information is helpful, the internet is a minefield of misinformation that could contribute to your stress. Obsessively scouring the net can also increase your anxiety and make you hyper-aware of your efforts to conceive. Commit to each other that you will seek advice from a medical professional if you have a question.

Do Something Else

Don’t make your entire life about starting a family. Stick to your normal activities, and make plenty of time for recreation. If you undergo fertility treatments, such as IVF, and are waiting to find out if it was successful, consider taking a trip or doing something else to take your mind off the process.
