Breaking the Silence on Infertility

The August 2010 edition of SELF magazine published an article about infertility titled "This Woman Has a Secret: Breaking the Silence of Infertility".  It is a very informative article and I hope it will build greater awareness about what many of us are going through.  Please take some time to read it.

  1. SOOOOOO much better than the Washington Post article about 'Preservation' vs. 'Desperation' IVF. That one made me very mad!! Hope you are hanging in after ER!!

  2. Yep, that analogy is spot on! My RE's office is just as she described. I cried the first time I walked in there, as I couldn't believe it has come to this. And everyone is there for the same purpose, no one speaks, and you can cut the tension with a knife. I too HOPE for the best and brace for the worst, as this is one long, hard, bumpy ride.

    Thanks for sharing...make me feel normal ;)

  3. You always post the best things! Thanks for sharing. Britt and I were talking the other day about how much advocacy is needed and how the word needs to be spread, so that like cancer, infertility is no longer a taboo subject. It's a disease, no one chooses it, and therefore, we shouldn't be ashamed, but oh how we are!
