Fertility problems represent a "vital crisis" for the individuals or couples who suffer from it. We speak of "vital crisis" when in the life of the person there is an alteration of the emotional balance due to the inability to achieve his or her vital scheme, that is to say, what is internalized as normal or possible. This initial shock generates disorganization, hopelessness, sadness, anxiety and confusion. These couples are faced with a problem for which they are not previously prepared and therefore do not know the necessary tools or resources to accept and face the situation.
This situation produces changes in the person in the face of such an emotionally charged process. Changes are produced in the ingrained beliefs, in the attitudes towards the subject, and change in the expectations. All this is externalized through negative behaviors or feelings.
