Don't Cook Your Balls?

a blog by Julie Monacelli, November 25, 2013

Men were largely left out of the fertility app market until recently, but now men have a fertility tracker too, called Trak Fertility. The starter kit comes with an engine, 6 disposable test cartridges, collection cups and a guide to mens reproductive health called "Don't Cook Your Balls." After obtaining a baseline reading, you can keep a record of your efforts to improve your health and the corresponding changes in your sperm count.

Hope: The state which promotes the belief in an outcome related to events and circumstances in one’s life.

Most of the time, the clients I meet are just about the embark on the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) roller coaster and despite feeling overwhelmed, they are mostly hopeful. After all, they have taken the proactive steps to meet with a reproductive endocrinologist (fertility doctor) who will help them create the family they’ve longed for. Even the most hardened veterans among us can remember that initial optimism. But, when time is measured by the next blood test, ultrasound appointment, ovulation triggers and due-dates that never were, hope can be elusive.

Will You Be My Valentine...Baby?

a blog by Fran Meadows, February 14, 2013

Most couples that are struggling with infertility know that Valentine’s Day is a day for love and hope that baby dust is in the air. A day to break out your sexiest red lingerie and try to be carefree not thinking about baby making. Well, at least that's what you try to tell yourself; even if it’s for a minute. It's just another day, Valentine’s Day, but we try to embrace it as good things can happen. Some will be embarking on doing injections, an egg retrieval, an embryo transfer, just plain old love making, a BETA (pregnancy hormone hCG) test or just trying to embrace the happy love surrounding them as a couple.

I Deserved a Baby

a blog by Lisa Rosenthal, October 9, 2012

I deserved a baby.
I did.
I had done all the right things, a few (ok, quite a few) wrong things.
But mainly, I had done enough of the right things, at the right time, in the right way.
I deserved a baby.
I was young. Healthy. Strong and fit. Even married. I was ready.
I deserved a baby.
