3 must do if you are facing multiple failed IVF attempts but still want to try

1. Change a fertility Doctor

If you have done IVF a few times without success in your current fertility clinic, you might notice the sorry looks on the receptionists faces or the subtle fade in enthusiasm of your doctor. It is time to consider changing to a new doctor for your next IVF. When we hit with bfns, it is already very hard to cope, right? A new clinic does not guarantee a bfp but it sure guarantees you fresh enthusiasm. Every bit of positiveness counts when you are climbing the infertility hill. 

2. Take a break

Go do the stuff you have always wanted to do but did not because of infertility treatments. Go get that facial. Go to that holiday. Have that cocktail. Go on that healthy diet. Just take a break and come back stronger. 

3. Juice

Having lots of food and putting on weight does not mean you are not starved. We can be starved of all the micro-nutrients our body needs even when we are pigging out. Consuming more calories does not mean we are eating well for our body. Juicing is one good way of feeding our body with more micro-nutrients wholesomeness. Green juice in particular. Do try it. Your body will thank you for it.

Thought of the day

Dear you,

Hello from the other side. Or is there really the other side? It seem to me now that there is not a distinct other side. It felt like there was truly other side of IVF, back then when I was still at it. The other side I have envisioned was, a lush green field of happily ever after. Right now, this side actually feels pretty much like that side. Life is life. What I am trying to say is, you could be happy where you are right now, wherever you are. You see, the grass is always greener from the other side, but truly, life is worth celebrating on both sides of infertility. Life is worth celebrating now, pleasure is worth feeling now. You do not have to delay joy just because you are trying to overcome infertility. Just embrace life and life will embrace you back.
