I've been having fertility issues for quite a while now, but feel like I have hit rock bottom, I am sad pretty much all the time. As soon as I am alone I cry. I am just not sure what way to turn, I cant find anything positive anymore.

Hi Lorna

Dr. Phil, MD :

nice to meet you

Dr. Phil, MD :

it sounds like you are clearly depressed

Dr. Phil, MD :

depression can affect fertility too

Dr. Phil, MD :

have you sought treatment for depression?

Customer:

im not sure what to do, i keep getting told that I am young and have nothing to worry about

Customer:

no i havent

Dr. Phil, MD :

I think that is the first step

Dr. Phil, MD :

you need to see your GP for depression

Customer:

ok

Dr. Phil, MD :

the fertility issues are somewhat separate

Dr. Phil, MD :

have you seen a specialist about this?

Customer:

yes i am currently on a fertility program (since last Nov)

Dr. Phil, MD :

okay good

Dr. Phil, MD :

now you need to get help for depression

Dr. Phil, MD :

since you are trying to have a baby, the medicine we can use might be limited

Dr. Phil, MD :

but counseling will help

Customer:

i thought that because I am upset over the fertility that they might not see it as depression

Dr. Phil, MD :

no it definitely is

Customer:

ok

Dr. Phil, MD :

is this helpful?

Customer:

yeh i guess ill speak to my doc about it then
