When you’re going through fertility treatment, romance can often fall by the wayside. Juggling multiple doctors’ appointments and injection schedules along with everyday life can easily get in the way of strengthening the emotional connection you have with your partner. But maintaining a strong bond with your partner is key for managing the stress of undergoing fertility treatments. So how can you and your partner inject some more romance into your relationship? Here, the fertility experts of IVF FLORIDA discuss how you can keep the romance alive during fertility treatment.

 

1.  Schedule Date Nights

Don’t let hectic schedules keep you from getting in a date night! Plan one night every week where you and your partner go out for dinner, a movie, or a concert. Planning for this time helps to make sure that you and your partner focus on your relationship at least once per week.

 

2. Try Something New

Has the romantic spark begun to fade? One of the best ways to reignite it is to try something new together. Studies have shown that couples who try new things together are more satisfied in their relationships, so finally going on that tandem skydiving session may give your relationship the romantic jolt you’re looking for.

 

3. Play Games

Having fun together is a key part of any relationship, and playing games together is a great way to tap into that. To help amp up the intimacy, try choosing a cooperative game where you and your partner work together to win. Working together to achieve a common goal can help you and your partner bond while having fun.

 

4. Take a Staycation

Sometimes you and your partner may just need to get away. But if finances are tight, a full-on vacation may not be possible. A great alternative to this is a staycation, when you and your partner can act like tourists in your own city. Stay at a local hotel, spending the day relaxing by the pool and exploring your city with your partner. The mini-getaway may be just what you need to work some more romance into your relationship.

 

5. Get Your Heart Pumping

Are you or your partner big on hiking? Maybe you’re a gym junkie or cycling enthusiast. Whatever ways you and your partner like to work up a sweat, try doing it together! Exercising together doesn’t just help you stay in shape – it also helps deepen couple’s emotional bond and improves communication skills.

 

Infertility can take a toll on the strongest of couples. To keep the romance from leaving your relationship while you undergo fertility treatment, try using one or more of these tips regularly.
