Big feelings abound whenever the “maybe, next month” turns into conversations with doctors and an official diagnosis you maybe weren’t expecting. While any person or couple navigating infertility is far from alone — Resolve, the National Infertility Association, shares that 1 in 8 couples struggle with getting pregnant or bringing a pregnancy to full term —  it’s true that each person’s journey with infertility is unique.  The mental health strain of navigating infertility, for instance, can present differently from couple to couple or even within the same relationship.   According to the MGH Center for Women’s Mental...

When people talk about chemical pregnancies, they often mention that these pregnancy losses occur so early, that many women don’t even know they’re pregnant — and will have no idea that they’ve lost a pregnancy. But for infertility patients, that line of thinking doesn’t quite apply. Thanks to diligent cycle tracking, early testing, and frequent visits to your reproductive endocrinologist, fertility patients are more likely to know if they’ve suffered a chemical pregnancy. And finding out you’re pregnant only to learn that your pregnancy won’t last, is particularly devastating for those who had difficulty conceiving in...

For many, the right to an abortion is believed to be a black and white issue: you either support it, or you don’t. But for the millions of people globally who are faced with infertility, pregnancy loss, or the heartbreaking decision to terminate a pregnancy for medical reasons, there are many shades of gray when it comes to the topic of abortion. Even if there isn’t a medical necessity, the right to an abortion is a complex issue with lots of nuances.  On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court officially ruled to overturn Roe...

What previous generations once believed to be an impossibility has officially come to pass. On June 24th, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that gave all Americans federal protection to the right to terminate a pregnancy. And as fertility advocates, we are both heartbroken and outraged.  Despite those on either side of the political aisle believing abortion to be a black and white issue, for the millions of people globally who are faced with infertility, pregnancy loss, or the heartbreaking decision to terminate a pregnancy for...

In May of 2015, I married the love of my life. It was a whirlwind romance that took my breath away. I had so much hope and high expectations for this marriage. We were two young people excited to do life together. One month later, I found out that I was pregnant. I wasn’t ready for that to happen so quickly; it didn’t even cross my mind that I would be in that position only 5 weeks after our wedding. I was honestly shocked and more scared than excited. But seeing my husband’s joy and encouragement...
