This is the perfect time to work on being your best self in your relationship.

Are you and your partner experiencing fertility issues? You’re not alone. Nearly one in six U.S. couples has trouble conceiving. As a marriage counselor, I often work with people struggling with fertility and, unfortunately, what I often see is that by the time the couple is done conceiving, they’re also done with each other.

This doesn’t have to be the case. By recognizing the immense stress fertility struggles place on a relationship and working to manage it, couples can come through the process not just intact, but stronger than ever.
