It Is Just The Hormones Speaking

Far to many relate the feelings that a person going through fertility is having to the hormones.  “It is just the hormones speaking”.   Hormones likely cause mood swings, but mood and feelings are completely different animals.  It is important to be an active listener and really hear what the person undergoing fertility treatment is saying. Be patient, it may take the person a while to find the words to articulate what is going on in their mind.  Perhaps the hormones escalate feelings, but the feelings are still there regardless of how many Lupron, Ganirelix, HcG, or progesterone shots a person maybe getting.  Don’t dismiss what they are saying.  It is not just the hormones speaking.
