Life After Infertility Treatments Fail

This article was in the New York Times today. I found it very insightful.

And this (warning, may be offensive to some) is from a guy that had commented on the New York Times article. I wish I knew him, I would tell him how awesome he is!! Plus it is so refreshing to see something from a man's perspective on infertility....even if he does drop the F bomb every other word : )

Bittersweet story. Really kind of sad.

Thanks for the words of encouragement on my blog. Hope is all but gone. Wish I knew where it went. I think at 11dpo, I would have had a BFP if it were possible.

That was a sad story, but needed to be told. Truth is not all of us will make it to the other side of IF and we need to hear that the grass is just a different shade of green in that case.
(Also, thanks for the warning about the F-bomb so I knew to use the "find/replace" button to enjoy the letter.) It was SUPER interesting to hear it from a man's perspective! Our DHs typically keep it all inside, so good for him for speaking out and being manly enough to express his raw and uncensored feelings on behalf of all us IF couples!

That was very bittersweet and nicely put by that man minus the f-bombs. I personally have not doen IVF but am aware of the stupid stuff people say to you after 3 consecutive m/c's. I seriously wanted to throat punch them and knock the wind out of them so they knew what it was like to have to go through such pain and turmoil.
