The past two years have been pretty tough. We spent a year trying to conceive naturally and then we started looking at options for assisted fertility. There are lots of tests, medications, shots and doctor’s visits, and so far no success.

I kept a lot of my story bottled up, because I didn’t want to burden others with my problems, I didn’t want to bring something so personal into the open. But after much thought I decided to start talking about it anyways, because I am not alone, even though I have felt alone a lot (and I have a very most supportive husband) and I wanted others to know they are not alone either.

I’m not going to go into detail about each procedure, because those emotions are too raw, too personal, but I will share the basics with all of you and my general experience and if you want, I encourage you to share yours.
