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.

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

A blog by Rhonda Levy, April 17, 2014

Resist the Temptation to Focus on the "Relationship"
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.

Whilst traveling abroad for fertility treatment may not be the ideal situation, for many it is the only option available to fulfill their dream of becoming parents. If this is the next step on your fertility journey, then choosing an IVF clinic abroad is no easy task because of the choice available to you. Within Europe, the Czech Republic, Spain, Greece and Bulgaria are popular destinations to seek IVF treatment. This is usually because the cost of treatment can be cheaper; there are usually no waiting lists; and the IVF laws in some countries may allow types of treatment not available at home.

Hi everyone. Dr. DiMattina here to discuss the clinical issue of ureaplasma in infertility patients undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Studies show that this organism is often found on the cervix of 17 to 25% of patients with infertility. Cervical testing may be limited in detecting the presence of ureaplasma and many patients also have the bacterium present in the endometrial cavity regardless of whether or not it is present or detected on cervical testing. Detection of ureaplasma in the endometrial cavity is limited. Data from many studies suggest that untreated cervical or endometrial ureaplasma may lead to implantation failure or possibly spontaneous abortion but admittedly, much of the data comes from older literature.

let it go or be dragged

As Noah and I start to gear up for our embryo adoption this summer, I find myself feeling like I need to…let go. But I’m not sure of what? Do I need to let go of all that has happened over the past four years that has led us to this point, where the best option we have is to adopt a donated embryo? Do I need to try and let go of being attached to the outcome that it works? Impossible. As a psychotherapist and yoga teacher, the idea of non-attachment and letting go comes up often. I’ve been trying to figure out what exactly it means in relation to infertility.

It’s easy to focus on the negative aspects of infertility. The negative pregnancy tests. The failed procedures. The constant waiting game. The “why not us?” But infertility does have its silver linings. You just have to look for them.

A blog by Alison Zimon, MD, Boston IVF, April 9, 2014

The term "designer babies" is misleading everyone on the benefit of pre-testing with in vitro fertilization (IVF). It cannot be applied to current medical techniques and is a theoretical term and connotes the idea that technologies can genetically engineer a child with specific and desired traits based on a preference for such characteristics as blue eyes, brown hair, and skin with freckles for example.

You may have a girlfriend who is struggling with infertility as I type this. She is sitting alone worrying about everything…

Will I ever get pregnant?
Be a mom?
Feel normal again?
Not feel crazy – cuz man those meds can make you feel like you are in a constant state of PMS!
