You are more than your infertility.

You are a wife, a partner, a friend, a lover.

You are a daughter, sister, an aunt, a cousin.

You are a worker, a fur mommy, a smiler, a laugher.

You are a timed intercourse lover, a basal temperature checker, a pregnancy bump spy.

You are a toilet paper inspector, a Doctor Google searcher, an ovulation charter.

You are a pregnancy strip tester, a PCOS hair plucker, a low-sperm count partner.

You are a fake pregnancy symptomer, a Clomid side effector, a Facebook pregnancy spy.

You are a crier in public places, a hormonal fertility needle injector, a fertility drug addict.

You are hoper, a believer, a person who won’t give up-er.

You are a strong woman.

Infertility does not define you.

    I read this the day I found out I had blocked tubes and it meant the world to me to feel that solidarity. It made me wail and bawl but it also uplifted me somehow. Thanks for this one!

    Thanks for this one. Much needed. I’m CD 28 and am petrified of the pain I’m going to feel in the next day or two when AF shows up…
