How to Survive Fertility Treatments

    Fertility treatments are the worst. Literally the worst thing ever. Taking fertility medication makes you feel like you are pregnant 24/7 yet your womb is empty. It is physically, emotionally, and mentally draining. Let me describe to you what a typical day during treatment is like.   *Disclaimer* Treatment is different for everyone.… Continue reading How to Survive Fertility Treatments
