After I got married, I cannot count the times that I was asked – When are you going to get pregnant? Hopefully, this personal account of my struggle with infertility will strengthen women who get that twinge of pain when this question is nonchalantly asked of them.
This personal question is too frequently asked casually by family, friends, as well as work colleagues. Our peer circles just don’t seem to be aware of the layers involved in an infertility situation. The constant questioning caused strain on my career and family relationships.
Like many women, I could not get pregnant naturally. It turned out that I just needed a little help and hope.
When I arrived New Hope Fertility Center for my initial consultation, I was received with overwhelming warmth, kindness, understanding and encouragement. Before my diagnostic testing was even underway, my fertility team gave me advice on how to cope more effectively with stressful outside factors while going through IVF.
Infertility had caused me to become self-absorbed while at the same time losing my self-confidence. I had to regroup, reflect, and take on a new outlook. Based on my fertility team’s suggestion, I sought out fertility counseling to build up my strength. I gained perspective of my emotions which helped me to face the outside forces contributing to my sensitivity, frustration, anger, depression, disappointment, and grief.
Patient-Friendly At-HOME IVF
I chose At-HOME IVF – the newest patient-friendly protocol offered by New Hope Fertility Center – for its convenience factor. My fertility care team sent me a specially designed IVF package containing everything I needed to complete a fresh cycle in the comfort of my own home. The package included all medications with instructions and 24/7 personal assistance.
My fertility team constantly assured me that I only needed to produce one good egg to achieve a pregnancy. Even though I was blessed to produce more than one, the best egg is now my baby boy – John.
As a woman who recently went through IVF and finally give birth to my dear baby boy, I would like to take this time to thank my fertility team at New Hope Fertility Center for their kindness and steady-guiding hand.
I hope this letter of thanks to my fertility care team will give hope to others struggling with infertility. – Mary B. 12.4.19
