Psychological Causes

Infertility may often have a psychological basis. The mind could subconsciously inhibit pregnancy, protecting the couple from excessive demands. This may also be regarded as a psychosomatic protective mechanism.

Psychological causes might include:

  • unresolved conflicts within the family (parents, siblings, grandparents) or with former partners
  • high self-expectations
  • exclusive focus on becoming pregnant
  • performance pressure
  • perfectionism
  • excessive self-control
  • inability to grieve the death of a loved one, miscarriage or stillbirth
  • unconscious guilt about an earlier abortion
  • unconscious fears (e.g. of birth, pregnancy, parental role, attachment)
  • relationship conflicts
  • unhealthy behaviors under stress
  • traumatic experiences
