You are not alone

When you’re dealing with matters of the uterus, it’s easy to feel isolated. However, support groups can be of tremendous comfort. In general, support groups are made up of people with common interests and experiences. People who have been through, or are going through, a similar circumstance can do more than sympathize with you — they can relate to what you are going through and keep you from feeling like you are alone. At the Fertility Authority, we recommend our site dedicated to just that, FertileThoughts. In the past month alone, FertileThoughts had nearly 700,000 visitors. Talk about a whole lot of people to support you!

Whether you are coping with infertility, looking to adopt, living childfree or considering a surrogate , FertileThoughts has several forums where you can connect with others who can relate.

If you decide to join any support group, online or not, some benefits may include:

  • Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged
  • Gaining a sense of empowerment and control
  • Improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment
  • Talking openly and honestly about your feelings
  • Reducing distress, depression or anxiety
  • Developing a clearer understanding of what to expect with your situation
  • Getting practical advice or information about treatment options
  • Comparing notes about resources, such as doctors and alternative options
  • So take a moment, stop by FertileThoughts and ask or give some support. It can be a huge help in staying sane!
