A "no pregnancy talk" social circle

Although sharing with some friends and family can be very helpful when dealing with fertility issues, choosing to not share with others may be just as therapeutic. It is healthy to have some social interactions where you do not have to think about pregnancy at all, and instead can focus on other things. It might be a good idea to try and identify a friend or a group where you can socialize in a situation where the topic of having children is unlikely to arise. For example, spend some time with a younger colleague who is not ready for children, or join a social group that focuses on a specific activity. Here are a few ideas:

  • Friends or work colleagues who are single
  • Running club
  • Book club
  • Cooking classes
  • Art classes
