Mercury’s Rising

Mercury’s Rising

a blog by Marie Lee

Jeremy Piven, the actor, had quite the hoo-ha when he stepped down from his role in the revival of David Mamet’s play, Speed-the-Plow, because he said he had mercury poisoning.

I find it funny that everyone’s making fun of him. Even the New York Times described it as “A Fish Story” and reported it in the Entertainment section. And of course it’s all over Gawker.

You Know You’re on Your Best Behavior When…

You’re on Your Best Behavior When…

a blog by Pamela Jeanne

What the “fertile” world fails to truly appreciate is the superhuman effort it takes not to get all pissy about mommy and baby talk – especially when an infertile is feeling the effects of her condition in a visceral way. Let me point out a few of the seemingly innocuous gestures and comments that could whip up a black ire in no time flat if we let our anger get the better of us:

Dollars and Sense

by Evelina Weidman Sterling, March 2009

For more than 70 percent of families struggling to have a baby, fertility-related expenses must be paid completely out-of-pocket. How can this be, when almost one in six couples are in this situation? Why won’t more insurance companies foot the bill for at least some of these expenses? It just doesn’t make sense.

Advice on managing the costs of infertility treatment.

Prime Location: Unused Womb Seeks Tenants

First built in the mid-1970’s, this property has never been lived in, not even on a temporary basis! It has been actively marketed for 2 years and despite numerous viewings by keen sperms and infrequent visits by eggs, it has yet to find suitable tenants. It is currently undergoing a thorough clean out with the Coil cleaning company – a six month procedure - and is expected to be back on the market and available to rent from July 2009.

So Who is FertilityAuthority?

Last month our (then) all-female team launched FertilityAuthority – a web portal we’ve tagged “your most trusted source for everything fertility.” Now some would say that starting a business in the current economic environment is crazy (and you know what, they'd be right!), but reproductive medicine is a $3 billion industry and we see an opportunity to be profitable and make a difference in people’s lives.

Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster

by Iris Waichler

My infertility journey started when I got married at 42. I didn’t think about my age until my doctor told me that being over 35 limited my chances of becoming a parent. Our journey lasted almost four years, and an egg donor gave us the gift of parenthood. My daughter, Grace, was born when I was almost 46.

Good Morning, Infertility

a blog by Murgdan

It is unbelievable to me how much my life suddenly seems to revolve around infertility. I see the world through infertility-colored glasses, yet struggle not to define myself by it. It seems to be the first thing I think about in the morning, and the thing that leaves my mind racing and unable to rest at night.

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder

Not in the mood? You’re not alone. Approximately 43 percent of women ages 18-59 experience some form of sexual dysfunction. The most frequent complaint? You guessed it: lack of interest. Now add in the fact that you're TTC, and the irony is, you're working so hard to make a baby, but having sex is the last thing you feel like doing!
