  1. High FSH - Prejudice Insurance Companies

    It’s incredibly unfair, but also a fact of life. Insurance companies are often less likely to approve procedures that have lower probability than average of succeeding. As frustrating as this may be, it’s not nearly as frustrating as the doctor prejudices which I feel mislead women into believing they have no chance of bearing their own children. With the insurance companies, there are usually ways to work around the FSH restrictions to obtain coverage (assuming your plan otherwise provides for ...
  2. Mandatory Sex Dates

    If you’re reading this, it means you found your way to my fertility blog for a reason, so you can more than likely relate well to the feelings I’m describing. In our home, we relied on ovulation kits and calendar tracking as if they were the Bible. We planned our lives completely around those “fertile” dates, and no, it did not matter how exhausted we were and/or frustrated we were with one another. We knew that the ovulation kit dictated our “hot date nights”. To make matters worse, I was prone ...

  7. Infertility at 27.. What a tragedy

    Next week is my frozen transfer. After 24 months of being pissed I finally feel like I have a chance at having that missed period. Here's my story. At 23 I married my sweetheart by 24 I was pregnant. It took one month. I remember thinking.. That was easy enough. Well I miscarried 8 weeks later. At the time I thought I have plenty of years. Just enjoy my life in paradise. I really miss those days of thinking that sex and babies go hand in hand. By 25 we decided to start trying again. 4 months of ...
