Keeping the Romance Alive: Ideas for Couples #TTC

For couples struggling with infertility, it can be difficult to keep the romance alive. All of the stress, frustrations, and disappointments these couples face on their path to parenthood can take a toll on any relationship. But taking a break from focusing on your fertility issues to reconnect with your partner can help strengthen your relationship and reduce infertility-induced stress.

So how can couples keep the romance alive? The team at the Center for Reproductive Medicine in Orlando, Florida is here with some tips on ways to spend some quality time with the one you love on any day of the year.

Press pause on fertility talk

When you’re struggling with infertility, it can start to feel like it’s taken over your whole life. For couples dealing with all of the testing, monitoring, and lifestyle changes associated with fertility treatment, it starts to seem as if it is all that you and your partner talk about. Try taking a break from the fertility talk and instead take the time to talk about anything but your fertility struggle.

Spice things up

If you’re looking to inject some romance back into your relationship, interrupting your routine can be just what the doctor ordered. Spice things up by trying something new together. Whether it’s a new activity you’ve been wanting to try or a place you’ve been dying to go, experiencing something new with your partner can help deepen your connection and reinvigorate your bond.

Get away for a while

Whether it’s a day trip nearby or a full-fledged vacation, getting away for a while can help you and your partner broaden your horizons, discover new places, and give you something new to talk about. Getting out of town can also help you recharge – relaxing with your partner on a getaway can help give you a break from the constant stressors in your daily life.

Work up a sweat together

The couple that sweats together, stays together! Spend some quality time with your partner on hiking trails, in a yoga class, or on a long bike ride. Exercising together doesn’t just help you stay in shape – it also helps deepen couple’s emotional bond and improves communication skills.

Give back

Practicing gratitude can help couples cope with the stress that comes with struggling with infertility. One of the best ways to show your gratitude? Giving back. Take some time to share the love with those in need by volunteering at a nursing home, animal shelter, or other local non-profit.
