Exactly what is infertility? According to the Mayo Clinic, infertility is defined as, “not being able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year for most people and six months in certain circumstances.” But, it is more than that. Those who suffer with infertility can attest to this. Nothing hurts more than realizing you are suffering from infertility. Actually, something does. When a physician tells you, before you even attempt conception, that you are infertile. That has to be worst feeling ever: to be defeated prior to trying.

Using Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) to create your family can be overwhelming, confusing and stressful. Those who enter this world enter a daunting maze, difficult to navigate and filled with pitfalls. Many spend years spinning their wheels on the wrong track, only to realize that they "did not know what they did not know".

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week, a week dedicated to sharing information about infertility. As I sit down to write this entry following the prompt, “Resolve to know more…” I realize all of us going through infertility really have to know more about everything fertility related.

Learning about infertility

a blog by Katie Landry, April 23, 2014

I'm not sure how infertility never made it on society's radar, but I'm guessing that lots of women out there, myself included, who wish it had.

You never really hear about infertility issues - until you have them.

This is upsetting. In my case, knowledge might not have necessarily helped me, but it certainly could have prepared me. And yes, that would have helped.

Winter came early this year and surely overstayed its welcome. Spring is taking its old slow time in getting here. But National Infertility Awareness Week is right on time! From where I stand, the timing couldn’t be better.

In honor of National Infertility Awareness Week’s theme of “Resolve to Know More …,” I think it is important for individuals and couples who are exploring fertility treatment to learn all they can about new technologies that have the potential to improve their chances of success. The “EmbryoScope” and the “Eeva” are two revolutionary technologies that my practice is currently using. The technology may be especially helpful for those couples who have previously failed IVF or suffered from recurrent miscarriages.

A study published in Human Reproduction that links long-term stress to infertility is making news. And for infertility patients it can be maddening. Stress causes infertility, infertility causes stress... It seems like it’s a viscous cycle.

Are you trying to get pregnant or are you pregnant? We want to hear from you!

There’s one term that comes to mind when talking or thinking about infertility: waiting.

As you enter the world of assisted reproductive technology (ART), it is tempting to focus your initial attention on the physician who will help you overcome your difficulties in conceiving a baby. Your goal is a personal and intimate one, and your relationship with your physician will be equally so. It is perfectly logical to give thought to what you need from that relationship; and in a perfect world, what you need, at least in part, is kindness and compassion. Turning to ART to conceive your baby has its challenges in the best of circumstances and a little warmth goes a long way.
