How you can increase your fertility by being your own advocate in and out of the IVF clinic.

Updated: Dec 13, 2019

Welcome to the FIRST episode of The Fertility Connection Talk Show!

I've brought together a few inspiring women from around the world to talk about all things linked to fertility & inspire you to take control of your fertility journey. We're meeting once a month here on the Infertile Diagnosis.

A month or so ago, I posted on IG: "We'll Wait Until You Have Three Miscarriages." Should say no Doctor ever. The more I talk with you all, the more I hear this, and it's messed up. I know miscarriages are apart of life & they will happen to the best of us, but to tell a couple that they'll have to wait to have three miscarriages before they test for ___________ (fill in the blank)! Duck this 🦆. I want to to start empowering yourself and stand up to anyone who tells you this. Remember- it's your body, it's your money, it's your heartache, it's your life!

There’s probably not many of us out there who haven’t dealt with infertility & walked out of the doctor's office and thought “WTF just happened.” I know there’s been far too many times during my infertility journey that I became a deer in the headlights and just listened to the doctor or “fertility specialist” and did what they thought was best for me. Maybe that’s why I had a nine-year infertility journey. But I know I’m not alone & that’s why I wanted this subject to be our first topic of conversation on The Fertility Reconnect Talk Show.
