My wife and I have been trying to conceive via IUI (we are a same sex couple). We have had two failed attempts thus far and it has been hard to handle. Specifically, my wife has been stressed about letting me down and feels like a failure. We've had many discussions about this and she has been feeling a bit better lately, but any suggestions on how to reassure her? Or any recommendations on how to convince her that a failed attempt does not make her a failure?
We decided to take a break from trying over the Christmas holidays - and just yesterday decided to take another month off for a mental break.
