Fertility and Age
Forty is not old. Forty-five is not old. Fifty is not old.
If you're trying to become pregnant, with your own eggs, and you are forty, I bet you feel old.
Twenty-six is not old. Thirty-nine is not old. Thirty-two is not old. Twenty-one is not old.
I guarantee if you're trying to become pregnant and it's not happening, you're feeling your age and time ticking away.
We become so fearful around this; scared that we have missed that magic moment when pregnancy was possible.
Making Decisions During Infertility
Making decisions from a fear-based place does not always mean a wise decision. If you are stuck, in the middle of infertility (just simply not becoming pregnant), you may delay or speed along, out of desperation.
If you are feeling old, you may feel that there's no time to consider, rationally and sanely (remember those two feelings?); what is best for me? You may hold onto emotion and fear as a way of staying on a course of treatment that is not appropriate or insist on a fertility cycle treatment that is not necessary.
It is hard to listen when fear is roaring in your ears.
