Fertility Authority’s Blog of the Week:

The blog we’d like to feature this week is

Jen was diagnosed with unexplained infertility at the age of 29, after trying to conceive with ovulation tracking and timed intercourse for one year. After two failed IUIs and an unlucky IVF cycle that ended in a miscarriage, Jen moved on to adoption for building her family. She now has an 18-month-old daughter through adoption.

Jen has since discovered that her unexplained infertility is actually endometriosis and is having surgery to remove scar tissue this summer. She hopes it will restore her quality of life and help her heal from her infertility journey.

Jen started her blog as a means of infertility advocacy and sharing her passion for comprehensive reproductive rights. Jen says of her advocacy efforts: “Infertility advocacy has helped me feel in control of my infertility, and helped me contribute to making the journey easier for (hopefully!) millions of Americans.” She hopes that people can find comfort and support in reading about her infertility journey and find opportunities to turn their struggle into something more - something meaningful - through advocacy.
