How Do I Respond To An Infertility Test Report?



Have you tried over and again to have a baby but you couldn't?


We truly sympathise with you. We understand the emotional toll that can take on you as a couple.


Today's conversation series addresses a difficult but crucial conversation to have with yourself and as a couple.


If after meeting doctors and conducting tests, you receive a report of infertility, it is vital to be conscious of how you respond as an individual and to decide as a couple, the next steps to take.


These questions we put together will help you be conscious of how you are responding to the situation.


As a husband, if your wife received the infertility report, these are some questions you need to ask yourself:

  1. How do I protect her from accusing fingers of family members or friends?

  2. What can I do to help her know & understand that I do not blame her?

  3. How do I show her that I love and cherish her regardless of the doctor's report?


As a wife, if your husband received the infertility report, these are some questions you need to ask yourself:

  1. How do I protect and preserve his ego and pride as a man?

  2. What can I do to help him know & understand that I do not blame him?

  3. How do I show him that I respect him and honor him as the head of the home regardless of the doctor's report?


As a couple, here are some questions you should discuss:

  1. Do we put our faith to work and reject this report, trusting for a miracle?

  2. Are we open to options such as IVF, etc?

  3. Should we consider adoption?


You can learn more about infertility, its symptoms, options to consider, as well as hosptials to visit in this article by My Health Africa blog.


Finally, please remember that this is not the end. Don't allow an infertility test report to define you as a person or to define your relationship.


We are the ones who decide how we feel, how we look at things, how we react.
