Repost from @samanthalstine !! In honor of national infertility week: infertility is not convenient or comfortable, but we’re all about making the taboo something to be completely I afraid of :) .
We all know someone who struggles with infertility. We may not know it because some people choose to keep that struggle private. I kept my struggle with infertility as silent as possible for 5 years. I wasn’t old when my husband and I decided to start a family. We were both 23, and by the time we were 24 we thought it was possible something may not be right. I was diagnosed with “unexplained infertility”. This was discouraging because there was no clear answer as to how to solve the problem and start our family. Before we took the leap to try IVF, we‘d done 7 rounds of failed IUIs. Infertility is not easy. It’s isolation. It’s insecurity. It’s self loathing. Fertility treatments are not easy. Pills, shots, appointments, tests, blood work, schedules.... but in the end we were blessed with two beautiful boys. Our story ended well, but not all stories do. This week is #nationalinfertilityawarenessweek - try to be kind to those who may be dealing with this situation. 💞 love you all. #flipthescript #fertilitytreatment #infertility #fertilitytreatmentcenter #ivf #ivfsuccess #ivftwins #twins #baby #babies #family #ivfmom #momlife #becomingamom #love #support #infertilityawareness Fertility Treatment Center
