One advise I would like to give for infertility warriors is that research before you proceed. Researching about the medicines is easy, but don’t go too much into it, for your body which medicine will suit or work your RE or Doctor will know better, don’t go too much into medicines read just what you need and leave it don’t brood about it,there will be times when you would want to know whats happening with your body, how will that tablet or injection or procedure work for you, if you have doubts and questions regarding the medicines ask your doctor and go with the flow.
I would say research more about how to manage or handle yourself and your partner emotionally and mentally. The infertility treatments are very draining physically , emotionally and financially as I have said in my earlier posts.
Infertility treatments puts loads of stress mentally because you don’t know what’s happening with you most of the time. The the failures , cancellation of the cycles , miscarriages, even if your successful with the treatments you will be worried until you have your baby in your hand, and then the pregnancy announcements, baby shower’s and much more, this all is very disturbing it’s very difficult to handle all these at once. Try to speak about your journey with who ever you feel comfortable with and who will understand you journey.There are loads of support groups online.If you like writing write a blog,do write it helps when you jot down your feelings and you will definitely feel better. So research more how you will handle emotionally, because many people wont talk about infertility openly. This is infertility life.
PS:I am not a doctor, these are just my findings, my experiences and my infertility warrior friends experiences,which are a part of my life. I am half doctor myself because we go though so much,sometimes I feel I know my diagnosis better than my RE(Reproductive Endocrinologist). Hope these posts make some sense for people who are not a part of this journey.This post is a part of #AtoZchallenge2018.
