Infertility Treatment Basics- Taking Care of the Whole Person

I’m catching up this summer. 


Not on my reading.


Not with old friends.


With my health.


I’m going to the dentist.


The endocrinologist.


The Obstetrician/Gynecologist.


Eat healthy.


The cardiologist.


The dermatologist.


Go to the gym.


That’s my list.


Your list may be very different. (Although we all need to visit the dentist.)


Still, most likely, you have a list.


Is there something that you are neglecting because you are in fertility treatment?


Some maintenance that you should be more diligent about, but aren’t being because of the demands of infertility?


It can feel like enough, just dealing with your fertility specialist. Enough to go for fertility monitoring or uterine or sperm testing.


It can feel like enough, during an IUI (intrauterine insemination) or IVF (in vitro fertilization) cycle to monitor the medications, ultrasounds and blood draws.


Still, there’s that list. Nagging at you.


Take a moment and pay attention.


Catch up. Make these other appointments. Go for a walk.


Stay healthy.


You are a whole person.


Take care of yourself.


All of you.
