I forgot! I need your input!

Sooo, true story: there were supposed to be three parts to my last post but I’m sitting here listening to the Bitter Infertiles Podcasts (which seriously rock!) and got way too engrossed and forgot. Ooops.

I’ve been working on a super exciting project for the infertility support group I belong too. This is a great organization that is looking to grow and reach more women. Being the work-a-holic I am, I offered to build the group a website complete with resources for couples dealing with infertility. One section of the site will include links to GOOD infertility books (there is a quite a bit of garbage out there as I’m sure we have all found) and infertility support products (such as Circle and Bloom).

I want to make sure as many options spanning as many IF conditions possible are represented. If you have a product or book or even a great website to recommend, please leave me a comment and I’ll work it in. Thanks for your help and I can’t wait to share the finished site with everyone in the coming weeks!

    My husband and I both read How To Make Love to a Plastic Cup — it deals with male factor infertility and it was really good. I’ve just been skimming a few books regarding female infertility lately and haven’t found anything that I love. My husband has been reading What to Expect When She’s Not Expecting and said it’s a really great resource for men. 🙂

      😆 I need to pick up that book!

    I agree with Jessica… “How to make Love to a plastic cup”, not only gives a pretty accurate account of what happens during the infertility journey, but is a easy humorous read.

    “Conquering Infertility: Dr. Alice Domar’s Mind/Body Guide to Enhancing Fertility and Coping With Infertility”

    Don’t let the title mislead you: Dr. Domar isn’t guaranteeing that you’ll conquer fertility by becoming pregnant. This book’s focus is on helping you cope with the emotional and mental stress of infertility. (I probably need to re-read it!)

    The first book that ever made me feel like I might have some hope was The Infertility Cure by Randine Lewis. I read it cover to cover – it has a ton of great info on TCM!

    Conception Chronicles was a quick, funny, and informative read and Pregnitude is a supplement my RE not only green-lighted, but said studies have down the ingredients help women with PCOS! It’s mixed with water twice a day and there’s no taste.

    I found “Navigating the Land of IF: Understanding Infertility and Exploring Your Options”–written by Melissa at Stirrup Queens–to be very readable and full of good information. Wish I’d had a copy of it at the beginning of our infertility experience.

    I really liked Good Eggs — a graphic novel, so it’s easy to read when you’re feeling down or lethargic or brain dead. Also read So Close by Tertia Albertyn — she’s super funny and has been through 9 IVFs and dealt with a lot of pain/sorrow, but it leaves you with plenty of hope.

    My RE recommended the supplemets CoQ10 (Co Enzyme Q10) 200-400mg/d and DHEA 100mg/d. I haven’t done much research, but he claimed they could help with ovulation…that might be something interesting to look into.

    Also, for women who are dealing with Asherman’s Syndrome, http://www.adhesions.org/asherman.htm has a Message Board where women can discuss issues and recommend surgeons, etc. I was a member here for a short time and learned a lot of valuable information.

    Waiting for Daisy by Peggy Orenstein. It’s a self biografy but a really good one, going through many aspects of the journey through infertility. I got the tip from Jjiraffe.
