Support to Infertility Treatments

Oficina de Psicologia intervenes in infertility problems inserted in multidisciplinary teams

Infertility is defined as the inability to naturally conceive, carry, or give birth to a healthy child. The World Health Organization defines infertility as the failure to achieve clinical pregnancy after attempting for 24 months. This is the recommended definition, thus being the most used by clinical practice and by research in multiple areas.

All over the world, it is estimated that infertility affects 10 to 15% of couples in childbearing age. Over the last years, the number of couples seeking fertility treatments increased significantly. Stress from the desire to have a child acts like a generator of emotional reactions, such as anger, depression, anxiety, marital problems and feelings of inefficacy. In general, among infertile couples, women show higher levels of stress in relation to their partners. Several studies support the theory that stress is associated to minor pregnancy rates among women undergoing a fertility treatment. 

Considering that psychological factors have an important role in infertility pathogenesis, psychotherapeutic intervention is crucial to manage a problem with such harmful effects, not only at a physical and psychological level but that can also cause a profound social and cultural impact.
