Re: how do you keep positive?

If you are having a hard time staying positive during preconception, then put up note cards with positive words and phrases on them. At least you will read them and your brain will take note of them several times a day. Place one on your bathroom mirror, on your computer, in your car, taped to the b...

Re: how do you keep positive?

I believe that staying positive is vital for a woman’s physical and emotional well-being. Staying positive reinforces to your body healthy thoughts and emotions. Positive thinking attracts positive actions into one’s life. Negativity is a stress on the body. Stress hormones really play into the role...

Re: need to vent! very bad day

The pressure to raise a family can be enormous, and the thought of not being able to have children can make many people feel something is wrong with them. A fertility problem may be one of the most difficult challenges you'll ever face. It's normal to feel a monumental sense of loss, to feel stresse...

Re: Success rate of IVF

Hello OP! Are you using yours or donor eggs? I had IVF with donor eggs, but I think the procedures are pretty the same. I believe success depends on woman as well. The carrying mom needs a strong uterus and overall physique. To prepare I took and am taking prenatal vitamins and eating mostly whole f...

Re: anyone help me out in this situation?

I'm so sorry you faced such situation. Stress and sometimes "trying too hard to conceive" may actually play a role in up to 30% of all infertility problems. Stress can hamper ovulation. No amount of sperm will make a difference if the woman's body hasn't released an egg. The explanation of what happ...

Hi everyone! It’s nice to see so many stories with happy ending on this forum. I’m lucky I found this thread as I had de ivf a couple of months ago.

Re: The cost is not an issue

Hello OP! I underwent IVF treatment. I used donor eggs. I'll try to answer your questions, basing on my own experience. Price for IVF depends on so many things. First of all where do you live? It would be easier to give advice, knowing where you located. If you're planning to go abroad, you should c...

Re: how to prepare for ivf with donor eggs

I think you are very wise to think ahead! Because the carrying mom needs a strong uterus and overall physique, to prepare I took and am taking prenatal vitamins and eating mostly whole foods. I’m also more careful with my sugar intake. I just cut back on sugar, and actually didn't miss it much as I ...
