Infertility can be a pretty depressing and overwhelming topic. Though it may seem that everyone has the answers, what works for one person may not work for another. However, it is refreshing to hear success stories, because it’s always important to know and understand that you’re not alone in your fight against infertility.
Reading about successes may give you hope and reassurance. And, as you’ll find, many of these success stories occur after women give up on IVF and other fertility treatments. They stop using fertility drugs and go back to basics. Some seek out relaxation techniques, yoga, acupuncture, and aromatherapy. Others use vitamins and supplements to help repair the damage done to their bodies, and within months they find out they’re expecting.
Look for success stories. If you’re struggling with the hormonal imbalance or side effects like weight gain and mood changes that come along with fertility drugs, you’ll read accounts from women who have stopped the drugs and have eventually become pregnant. Sometimes, all it takes is some time to reset your body.
The biggest piece of advice? As hard as it may be, don’t make getting pregnant your only hobby. The more you stress over it, the harder it will be to conceive. Have fun making a baby, and remember that the whole process should be enjoyable.
