Where do I start with Infertility?

Where do I start with Infertility?

Do all your testing with an infertility specialist.  If and when you become a patient at a clinic they will want to repeat all the same testing your OBGYN might have ordered.  Since reading tests can be somewhat subjective, they trust their staff and technicians over others. Some insurance plans may not cover testing like this so save yourself the money and heart-ache.

Infertility Depression

Not only did the infertility drugs make me crazy the whole situation made me so depressed.  There are so many emotions tied up in whether or not you can procreate.

It wasn’t the big NYC clinics that I found multiple successes at it was the smaller, almost unheard of clinic in southern NJ.  I was lucky enough to find multiple doctors at this clinic who actually listened to me and were willing to try and think out of the box.

Losing yourself while going through IVF

Losing yourself while going through IVF

This is really hard for me to admit, but I lost myself during my 5 year journey through infertility.  I started out with the best of intentions, give our 1 year old a sibling. Since we had quick success our first time, I naively thought we would have the same luck for baby number 2.
