Whether to share your fertility struggles, and with whom to share them, is an extremely personal decision. I never thought much about it because I’m a sharer by nature and knew I needed to share in order to get the support I needed. But in the beginning, my husband was much more reserved and much less inclined to talk about it. This wasn’t so much because he was embarrassed, but because, well, sometimes it’s a complicated conversation. Because infertility is usually a two person adventure, it’s important to be able to agree on disclosure issues. Over time, as we became aware that our fertility challenge was not a simple fix, Noah and I decided to go very public. I started writing a blog, and together we started documenting our journey on film, in hopes of sharing our story and the story of others in a similar situation.

The holidays can be a rough time for anyone stuck living with infertility. I know because I was sequestered to IF Island for four years, and for two of those years, the holidays came just after the heartbreak of unsuccessful IVF cycles.

Anyone who has been sequestered to IF Island knows that it comes with a huge cost, and I don’t just mean financially. Coping with the physical, emotional and financial cost of infertility treatments can be brutal. Below are some tips and strategies to help deal with the various “costs” of living on IF Island:

My comment above sounds a little silly, and is surely uninformed on this subject. Just my kind of way of "will-ing" you to succeed, I guess. Best of luck and godspeed. Take care.

I don't actually believe in "God". However, the term "Godspeed" has always struck me as being a sincere command spoken under dire circumstance. This comment was supposed to be an "Imagine that!", Seeing that you worked at Les Kelley (My old Doc's office; Hope you got to read my records :-)) . But seriously, I am sad to read about your island isolation. I admit i did a little snooping, and while there are pictures of your fabulous "getaways", reviews for "spiritual" locations and lamentations about island life, "Sans sun, surfers and such...", I haven't seen a picture of you buried in the sand or soaking in the life blood (ocean). Yoga is great, but it is merely a portal. "Godspeed" to you and your family. Sincerely, Doug Slaten
