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. No one ever tells you when you are a little girl, that when you are dreaming of that family and white picket fence that it may not be as easy as just wanting it. That it will take a lot of work to get there.
When I felt like the doctors I was working with were not open minded I asked around and researched as much as I could. I eventually found a clinic that was willing to try some atypical things. 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.
Let’s talk about the insane amount of money we need to slap down for infertility treatments. Many of us who have to go through infertility do not have health insurance that covers treatment and that just sucks. Even worse than not having coverage is not knowing you have coverage!
