Does infertility cause divorce?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/30/2017

There is no direct relationship between infertility and divorce or relationship problems. When a couple realizes one of them is infertile, or even both, it is not uncommon to overreact. It is a normal reaction that normally disappears over time. Many women struggling with fertility issues become obsessed with getting pregnant, and start exhibiting symptoms of depression and anxiety as a consequence.

Men, when their partner or wife reacts like this, might worry that the woman they married will never reappear. Seeking expert counsel is strongly advised to cope with these feelings. Having empathy for each other is a key step toward facing this situation positively. Couples should start by accepting how their partner is feeling, and try to be there for him/her.
