Most of us are used to planning our lives. From college, career, marriage and family, we have it all planned out. But many times, our plans may not come to fruition exactly the way planned.
About one out of seven couples may experience fertility issues. Couples struggling to conceive often experience stress and disappointment. Infertility testing and treatment can cause emotional, physical and financial stress. Adding to that, is the month of February and the additional emphasis on Valentine’s Day.
The history for Valentine’s Day commemorates one or all of the Saint Valentines, who each remained dedicated to their purpose despite the obstacles they faced. In addition to commemorating Saint Valentine, Valentine’s Day also falls during the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. Lupercalia was celebrated February 13 – 15 and was a fertility festival dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture.
So, this month, embrace Valentine’s Day and take a moment to relax.
And remember, while infertility treatments can become stressful for couples, 80 percent of couples who work with a fertility specialist will achieve a pregnancy. Contact Dr. Douglas and IVF Plano to schedule a consultation at www.ivfplano.com.
