Reality?

I often find myself wondering if I am really infertile. What if I am just not trying hard enough? What if I don’t know enough about the ovulation process? Maybe we aren’t “getting busy” enough? Maybe I should buy more expensive OPKs?

I read that denial is one of the 5 stages of grief. I think these questions are a reflection of denial against my infertility. Do you ever question if this is really your reality?

    I did every day. It took iui with my first to make pregnancy reality. Then I lost the baby and all hope.

    I did until I met with the fertility doctor and she told me with complete certainty that I have PCOS. After that I couldn’t sleep for a few days and cried every time I was alone. When I met with my therapist about it she told me it was as though I had suffered a loss. A loss of my ability to conceive naturally. She told me to start journaling about my experience which is why I came on here. Finding other women going through my same experience has brought me a lot of comfort that I’m not alone.

    • I agree! I can’t believe I have made it this far in my journey without having people to talk to who have been through this. ❤️
