http://resolve.org/ Resolve is an amazing organization dedicated to supporting those dealing with infertility, and advocating for better support and awareness. They list resources by state, as well as support groups.
Resolve’s Resources for Family & Friends Advice about infertility for family and friends. Often, talking to the people in your life about what you’re going through can be one of the hardest things - they just don’t get it. These tips can really help you communicate and them understand. I sent these tips to many family and friends after we were diagnosed.
twitter.com Seriously, twitter is a 24/7 support group! You’d be surprised (or not!) at how many women are online tweeting about infertility. You can find me @thisispersonal, or search for #infertility or #ttc to find an amazing community to share your struggles with.
Dr. Liccardi’s Blog Have a question about infertility? Chances are someone’s already asked Dr. Liccardi at the NYU clinic.
Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor If you’re still TTC naturally, this little gadget just might change your life. It did mine! (I am not a paid spokesperson…) For me, it helped remove the guess work from tracking my ovulation patterns, and helped me and my doctors understand my cycles much better. It’s pricey, but worth it.
Circle + Bloom CB meditation MP3s are woooonderful if you’re going through a treatment cycle. I bought them before our first IUI cycle and listened every night, and sometimes during the day. They help me stay a little calmer and more focused amidst all the craziness of infertility.
Apthorp Pharmacy If you’re in the NYC metropolitan area, this pharmacy is very user-friendly for fertility medication. They’re approved by many insurance plans, will help you figure out the costs, offer classes, and have same day delivery.
Pacific College of Oriental Medicine If you’re thinking of trying acupuncture, PCOM might be a good place to start. I’ve been going there for about nine months, and appreciate the clinical setting, flexible schedules, and convenient location. There are plenty of interns to choose from, so you can find someone you like. (Not everyone has the same approach to infertility, email me if you want my recommendation for an intern.) Oh, and it’s mad cheap at $45 per session!
