Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
nice to meet you
it sounds like you are clearly depressed
depression can affect fertility too
have you sought treatment for depression?
im not sure what to do, i keep getting told that I am young and have nothing to worry about
no i havent
I think that is the first step
you need to see your GP for depression
the fertility issues are somewhat separate
have you seen a specialist about this?
yes i am currently on a fertility program (since last Nov)
now you need to get help for depression
since you are trying to have a baby, the medicine we can use might be limited
but counseling will help
i thought that because I am upset over the fertility that they might not see it as depression
no it definitely is
is this helpful?
yeh i guess ill speak to my doc about it then
any more questions for me?
would you mind rating me positive before leaving Lorna?
