I am almost finished taking my 5th round of Clomid, and I’m hoping that we will find ourselves with a healthy pregnancy by the end of this month.
Holding on to the hope that it will happen is harder on some days. Infertility is not just something that you think about a few days out of the month and move on. It’s not that it consumes me either, but with all the pills, temperatures, blood tests and pregnancy tests, it’s hard to really forget the goal that you have in mind.
It can be hard to understand that if it’s not something you have had to deal with. It may seem like I am letting this affect me “more than it should” or if I just did this or that, things would work out. Anyone who has struggled, or is struggling with infertility (primary or secondary), likely understands what this whole roller coaster does to you as a person and you as a couple.
Here are a few things I would like to let you know about secondary infertility, in case you don’t already:
