“There is no perfect way to handle infertility.
Once you find yourself fully immersed within it, you will quickly realize it is not at all a black and white world. Infertility is complex, it is all consuming, and more than anything else…it is unpredictable.
There is absolutely no way of telling what the outcome of your journey will look like once you find yourself walking down this path, and there are no guarantees that what you are doing will even work in the end.
You try everything and anything you can just in the hopes that the miracle you’ve been searching for is well within your reach, but even then things don’t always go in your favor.
What worked for someone else may not work for you and vise versa. No two cases of infertility are exactly alike, meaning not everyone’s experiences are going to look the same as one another’s.
When you are dealing with infertility, you have to know there is no ‘right or wrong’ way to treat it. You do what is best for you and your body, and the choices you make are entirely your own. The roads you take are your decisions and yours alone, and the opinions of others should hold no value in that.
Just because someone else might not agree with the methods you choose or how you go about treating your infertility does not mean what you are doing is wrong. At the end of the day, you have to do what you believe is right for you and your family – regardless of how it may look to others.
I know all of these decisions can be incredibly overwhelming at times, but just remember there is no right or wrong answer when making them. At the end of the day you are the author of your story, and it should be no one’s place to tell you otherwise.”
