Psychological causes – can the mind say "no"?

As helpful as fertility treatment is today, it is still a time-consuming process and requires a great deal of patience and perseverance. Above all, the “emotional rollercoaster” between fear and hope can be very stressful.

When there is no physical explanation for childlessness, an emotional stress reaction is often seen as the background. Although there is no scientific proof of this, the mental and emotional stress experienced in very extreme situations can be so great that the body "refuses" to become pregnant.

In men the unfulfilled desire for a child and the futile waiting can also leave their mark. The pressure of being unable to father a child can also lead to self-doubt.

Discussing the emotional aspects of the situation is therefore a normal part of the medical consultation. We happily offer in-house counseling by a psychologist to help you successfully work through these issues.
