Opening Up About Infertility


One
in eight couples has difficulty getting pregnant. And while more than 7
million Americans face infertility, many don’t know where to turn.   

Infertility
can be an incredibly stressful experience, but there are places you can
go for information and people you can turn to for support. Above all,
it’s important to open up with those you can trust. You don’t need to
face this journey alone. 

Here are my suggestions for some good sources for support and information: 

Family and Friends 
Infertility
can be a scary topic, and something that many couples don’t discuss,
even with those they are closest to. A Merck survey found that 61% of
couples hid their infertility problems from their friends and families,
and four in ten couples said the struggle to conceive has made it harder
to be open and honest with others.  But remember, your family and
friends want to help you.  They’re ready to be in your corner, but you
have to open up and tell them what you need from them.   
 
Fertility Specialist 
Some
couples look at a fertility specialist as a last resort, but really
when you’re trying to conceive a specialist can actually be your biggest
ally. A specialist can provide both information and support throughout
your journey to start a family. If you’re not sure whether or not to
take this step, there’s good news – the American Society for
Reproductive Medicine has clear guidelines to help you. If you are over
35 and have been trying to get pregnant for over 6 months, or under age
35 and have been trying to get pregnant for over a year, it’s time for
you to have an evaluation. Remember, talking to a fertility specialist
may be one of the most important steps you take as you’re looking to
start a family. 

FertilityGuide.com 
This
new website is a great resource for patients and offers a quick
questionnaire if you’re looking for initial information about
infertility and a clinician finder if you’re ready to take the next step
to see the specialist.  And because scheduling the initial visit to the
specialist can be a difficult first step to take, this site offers a
helpful doctor discussion guide.  This guide is great to download, print
out, and bring along on your first visit. 

Remember,
this can be an emotional time, but your family, friends and a fertility
specialist are all there to support you. Most importantly, keep in mind
that seeing a fertility specialist is just a conversation, not a
commitment.
