Since moving to the confessions of Jonathann Daval in the murder of his wife, on the 30th of January last, the intimacy of the couple and the fertility treatment of Alexia are singled out by his lawyer Randall Schwerdorffer. It is on the antenna of BFMTV that the latter is expressed, thereby launching the controversy by highlighting the “personality overwhelming” victim “rabaissait” her husband. He then spoke cautiously of violence “one-off” any of Alexia Daval against his client, become consecutive after the taking of a “treatment for fertility”.

After Master Schwerdorffer, “this treatment can have significant effects for behavior modification which may go up to the bipolarity and produce violence. I know that it sometimes is hard to bear this treatment and that it could cause seizures”.

Treatments for fertility are they really side effects psychiatric?

Among all the treatments of infertility, the most frequent one is to stimulate the ovary to obtain an ovulation. These ovarian stimulation represent an act common in gynecology. Among the adverse reactions that were reported, irritability and fluctuations in mood are rare, that is to say, they concern 1 to 10 patients in 10,000.

Every woman reacts more or less sensitive to the action of hormones in the treatment of infertility, however, no case of psychiatric problem is not known to have been caused by this kind of medication. There is no link currently between the hormonal stimulation and bipolar disorder.

Infertility puts the torque to the test

Even if the treatment does not give a known psychiatric problems, infertility is a difficult issue for all couples. After much waiting, a lot of hopes are placed in this treatment, which can become obnubilant.

It is very common to see an increase in stress progresses the treatment of infertility. Regardless of the drug’s side effects (weight gain, abdominal pain, headache, fatigue…), the morale oscillates at the long time between waiting, hope, disillusionment, and sadness. The stakes are high and the process is long. The uncertainty of the result and a sexual practice “programmed” that loses its spontaneity are often very painful to live for the couple.
