The most simple and hardest answer is to just talk, have a simple conversation, talk to each other. Men find it hard to let people in but women, please pursue us as we will give in but we do also need our space. Personally I found that with me and my partner, what made us stronger was exercise, we go on a lot of walks such as walking up mountains in Wales where we tend to talk but we did not really speak at the start of our fertility journey.
Listening to podcasts can help, hearing other peoples stories and you can seek a lot of comfort from this. Educate yourselves a little better and your relationship will improve and you will communicate better.
