Fertility Authority’s Blog of the Week: Conception’s Bitch
The blog we’d like to feature this week is Conception’s Bitch.
Karin and her husband began trying to conceive shortly after getting married. However, her irregular cycle was causing quite a bit of stress and concern. In November of 2012, she decided that it was time to find an outlet for her stress and began to blog. Blogging helped her manage the stress but she still wasn’t pregnant. In April of 2013, she decided it was time to seek assistance from an RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist). In June, Karin found herself unexpectedly pregnant. Sadly, 36 hours later she was in the emergency room experiencing a miscarriage. After a diagnosis of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and various other complications she was cleared to begin treatment in December of 2013. The following February marked the beginning of her treatment. To date she has done 3 cycles of Femara. They remain hopeful but plan to proceed with intrauterine insemination (IUI) if the Femara proves to be unsuccessful.
Like many women struggling to conceive, Karin found that there were few people in her life that could relate to what she was going through. She began blogging anonymously to vent her stress and frustration. She explains, “I didn’t go looking for the TTC community, they eventually found me.” She tries not to censor herself on her blog because she wants to be as open and honest about everything as possible. She states, “I hope that my readers find empathy for women dealing with infertility.”
