Fertility Treatment Advice From Former & Current Patients
Take some fertility treatment advice from those who have been in the fertility trenches.
Infertility patients speak from their heart, offering wisdom hard earned. Here's just a few tid bits of advice from Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) Ladies Night In Online Pages.
Infertility Advice From Former & Current Patients
1. Know that you are not alone.
2. Check out your fertility program carefully before you make an appointment.
3. Stay hopeful- start by assuming that things will go well with fertility treatment.
4. It won't be an easy road, but it will be so worth it. Just be prepared and don't give up.
Find infertility support from nonjudgmental people who understand your unique struggle- whether you prefer anonymous online experiences from other women who have been through it or in person through a support group. Every journey is different, but no one understands better or will celebrate your successes more than these women who have walked a similar path.
You are not any of the numbers or results or measurements that make up this treatment--- you are a soul, a person, not a machine. Hang in there!
