Ten Things About Infertility That Nobody Will Tell You– But You Need To Know Right From The Start


  1. You are going to hear no. Expect to hear it at times, but don’t let hearing it keep you down or stop you from going after your dream.
  1. You are going to have to put some aspects of your life on hold. It will be worth it, but be prepared to spend your time, energy and money on getting pregnant and putting certain aspects of your life on hold.
  1. You are going to hear negative comments, sometimes even from the people you love. Don’t pay attention to what they say. This can work out for you, despite what anyone says or thinks about your health or situation.
  1. This is a journey you might sometimes take alone. Don’t be surprised if sometimes even your husband can’t be there for you the way you need him to. If that happens, don’t waste your time getting angry–just keep going.
  1. The doctor you choose and the reproductive clinic they are associated with matters—choose a good one. You want a doctor who is open to trying new medications and procedures and who answers your questions and listens to what you have to say.
  1. You are going to have to eat and take care of your body in a way you never have before. Get ready to make spinach, garlic and pumpkin seeds your new best friends.
  1. You are going to have to be strong and stay positive, even when nothing positive is happening. You are going to have to get ready to harness every little bit of inner strength you’ve ever had.
  1. You are also going to fall apart sometimes. Just expect it.
  1. It is going to feel rotten to be invited to baby showers, children’s parties, and see pregnant women at the supermarket. When that happens, just remember: someday, it could very well be you having that baby shower, hosting the children’s parties and being that beautiful pregnant lady at the supermarket. And you never know: that mother with the beautiful baby that made your heart ache? She might have once been a fertility patient too.
  1. You are going to have to work hard and be flexible. It is important to understand that a lot of work may be required to beat infertility. Infertility treatments require going to lots of appointments, and doing whatever you can to improve your health. This journey takes effort and push. Accepting the hard work involved will make it easier, and hopefully empower you to do what is available to heal your infertility. While beating infertility can be really hard work, the reward it well worth any effort you have to make.
