5 Ways to Keep the Romance Alive During Fertility Treatment

August 27, 2019

For many couples, deciding to start a family is a happy time full of love and planning for the future. But for couples with infertility, the joy and fun associated with starting a family can quickly turn into the stress and anxiety associated with fertility treatment. When this happens, it can be difficult to keep the spark alive with your significant other. Between juggling multiple doctors’ appointments and injection schedules, making time for one another can fall by the wayside.

But maintaining your connection with your partner while you struggle with infertility is incredibly important for the health of your relationship. To help you make sure you’re keeping the romance going strong in your relationship, the fertility experts of IVF FLORIDA are here to provide you with some tips that can help you reignite that spark.


  1. Set Up a Weekly Date-Night

You’ve been scheduling multiple doctor’s appointments, but now it’s time to schedule a romantic appointment with your partner! Pick a day of the week when you and your partner can carve out some time to go out on the town and spend some quality time together over a meal. You’ll be surprised at what a weekly date night can do for the romance in your relationship!

  1. Be Helpful

Is there something your partner has been meaning to get done but hasn’t found the time to do it? Help them out! Tiny acts of service like hanging a picture, doing the dishes, or taking the car for an oil change are small ways to show your partner you love them – sometimes the smallest gestures pay the greatest dividends.

  1. Go on a Spontaneous Getaway

Sometimes all you need to reignite that spark is a change of scenery! Whether it’s a day trip to the nearest beach or a weekend away at a resort, a spontaneous getaway can help nudge you and your partner out of a rut and into a fun and flirtatious mood that can do wonders!

  1. Pick Up a Hobby as a Couple

Trying something new together is a great way to get the romance going! Find something you’d both be interested in – like joining a kickball league or taking cooking classes – and start doing it together regularly. It will give you time to bond as couple and a bit of novelty could be just what you need.

  1. Schedule a Couples Massage

Infertility can be incredibly stressful, so taking time out to unwind and treat yourself is very important. A great way to do that with your spouse is by scheduling a couple’s massage. The two of you can get in some much needed relaxation and spend a couple of hours just decompressing together.


It can be difficult to find the time and energy to be a little romantic with your partner when you’re struggling with infertility. But as hard as it can be, it’s important to find pockets of time where the two of you can reconnect and focus on your relationship.
