So there is a new study out:

High levels of psychologic distress in infertile couples

I mean, did they really need to waste money on this study?

(to read the synopsis, you can use my un/pw: lisachu, fertility)

DH & I tried to go to counseling after our 3rd m/c I think. But, the guy was a little fruity, and we only went once. (He actually said to me, "Take a deep breath... picture the air going through your Fallopian tubes to your uterus...") DH & I could not stop laughing after we left. Plus, he kept comparing my pain to the pain his wife went through when she found out she had cancer. He said his wife handled HER pain so well, and was so cheerful and gracious up until the end. The implication as I took it, that I had no right to be depressed & should be handling this better, since there are much worse things in life. I felt about an inch high. I couldn't even be depressed right! Let alone start a family. Oh boy.

Lisa- I had to giggle at your byline of "duh" for this article, you are so right! As a therapist I feel the need to apologize for a person in my field saying what he said to you. It is actually NOT good practice for a therapist to use their life experiences and compare them to their pateint's so the fact that he even brought up his wife's pain was questionable...then to go on about HER handeling it well...well he's an idiot. If he had to say anything at all or was trying to convey empathy maybe just talking about loss or grief over health could have been a better way to put it. Whatever the case, it's no wonder you didn't return. There are a lot of QUIRKY people in the field of psychotherapy, it can be hard to find a good one. I try and tell people it may take seeing a few bad eggs before coming out with a good one. Thanks for sharing and including this article!

I don't have time to take a look right now - but I will later. I agree with Norina - what a dink! If you needed someone to tell you to cheer & quit whining you could have asked the countless other people in your life that weren't supporting you through your struggle & gotten just as good of advice. Why was he asking you to envision air going through???? I would have giggled too - all it makes me imagine (I think I have a dirty mind) is when air gets in there (when you are having sex) and makes some uncomfortable noises & that is not a desirable thing to envision for me....

LOL at Beckie's queef comment.

but that's a sort of waste of money study. it's a given, if you're trying for something and it's not happening it's logical you're going to stress.

That's like saying "stress levels high among the unemployed"
