Thought for the day: Mark Twain once said, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did." At our center I see & care for infertile women in their 20's, 30's, 40's and 50' each point their choices shift becoming more complex wtih time. Think hard before you give up, ten years later there may be regret and harder choices. The time is always now when it comes to ART (assisted reproductive technologies)!

I don't know how I will keep up with both Facebook and Wellsphere, but I will give it a try! Hope to be of help to anyone out there with infertility issues! Remember, when that "huge wave of sadness" hits you, as it will and does when you reach that breaking point, give yourself a chance to ride that wave of grief until you reach the beach. In the words of one very courageous IF sufferer: "You just have to walk through it. And hopefully one day soon, out the other side."
