The second wave of the pandemic continues to witness the constant struggle for the mental well-being of people. This pandemic not only impacts physical health but has also increased social and economic hardships challenging many people’s mental wellness. Over the past year, living in a pandemic, it has become evident that the relationship between the body and mind matters for health.
This pandemic can put a lot of weight on people’s relationships. Staying connected with family and loved ones is very important, even if virtually. This support will strengthen a person’s mental wellbeing. Couples must communicate often and share their emotions as the pandemic can be very stressful. One can seek couples counseling if needed, to understand the dynamics of their relations better.
The feeling of anxiety and stress does have some long-term consequences. Doctors have long understood that infertility is a medical problem that can be triggered by stress, depression, and anxiety. When couples are trying and not getting pregnant after trying for a long time, it can be heartbreaking and frustrating. It is always recommended to get a fertility consultation before couples plan to start a family because it will help them understand where they stand and things that need to be worked on.
