@ivf newbie unfortunately it's hard on the partners too which I feel like they get overlooked sometimes. A lot of people say oh they've got no idea what we go through but they see and hear enough to know how crappy it is for us. And especially if the infertility problem stems from their side of things. I'd never blame my husband for that but he feels his own guilt over something that was totally out of his control.
Us girls certainly don't have it easy but the partners get affected in a different way I think. And if God forbid you've been going for 8 years with no baby to show for it like us then it really starts to bother them.
Good luck with it all!
