Father’s Day and infertility can be painful for many hopeful fathers
The Fertility Center of Las Vegas team knows that Father’s Day can be a difficult day for men who long for fatherhood. Our Las Vegas fertility center provides an Oasis of Hope for men and women who are facing infertility. Part of providing this oasis means offering tips to help you cope with Father’s Day and infertility.
Tips for coping with infertility on Father’s Day
If Father’s Day and infertility have got you feeling down, the team at our Las Vegas fertility center has some tips to help you cope.
- Make time for loved ones. Experiencing infertility on Father’s Day can make you think about what you don’t have. To combat this, you should think about all the wonderful people in your life on this day. Take time to celebrate with your own father or grandfather to take the focus off children. Or spend time with your partner to strengthen your bond. After all, infertility isn’t easy.
- Avoid places where children and families are spending the holiday. It’s common for families with children to go to restaurants on Father’s Day. If the pain of infertility is still too intense or too fresh, you may want to avoid these places on this day and enjoy an activity that isn’t tailored to families with children.
- Reach out for support. Many men are reluctant to talk about their feelings because they want to be the strong one. However, you deserve support too. Take time to talk about your feelings. Not only can it help you deal with negative emotions, it can also bring you closer to the person you’re sharing with.
Knowledge is power when it comes to Father’s Day and infertility
It’s important to know that you aren’t alone when you’re facing male infertility. 1 in 7 couples will face infertility, and male infertility plays a role in half of these cases. Not only is male infertility common, it is also treatable.
Our Las Vegas fertility center offers infertility treatments that range from intrauterine insemination (IUI) to in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Diagnostic testing can help your doctor create an individualized treatment plan that can help you bring home a baby.
