I was never a stubborn person, but this experience has made me obstinate; enabled me to recognize the strength of my own mind and body.
My whole process was so hard and challenging, yet absolutely brilliant and miraculous at the end.
If I ever needed a crash course in Motherhood, and the difficult decisions it would bring, this past month just laid it out for me.
I couldn’t have known then how complicated it would be emotionally to deal with male factor infertility as a couple.
The worst part of having premature diminished ovarian reserve (DOR) for me was feeling like the infertile of the infertile.
As a healthy and active 27 year old woman, I never imagined I would have trouble trying to conceive.
Like any mother, I was disturbed, alarmed and distressed by these thoughts and images.
