My "It's Not Him, It's ME: Moment: My Struggle With Infertility

“This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and The Stork OTC. All opinions are my own.”

Late at night when the house is quiet and the kids are sleeping, I sometimes peek in on them. I stand there at their door in awe. Sometimes it brings me to tears just thinking of my life before they arrived.

I can't help but think of the countless visits to fertility clinics, numerous meds and rivers of tears I cried during our fertility journey.

I guess there were signs of my impending fertility struggle. I mean I started my cycle later than most of my friends. I often had a hair or two spring up like a pimple just days before my cycle and I began to pack on the pounds. Telltale signs of Stein-Levanthal Syndrome also known as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
I first heard of PCOS in my late 20s. I remember visits to endocrinologists who poked and prodded in an effort to figure out if I suffered from hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism or blah-blah-blah. Really, there comes a point when you no longer hear any of the medical jargon being hurled at you. A time when you can't process your body's rejection. A time when all you wanna do is scream. A time when your faith fails and you wonder "Why Me".

For some of us, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Some of us get that golden ticket to the Parent Hood.

If you're trying to get pregnant stay encouraged. Do everything in your power to make it happen. Find a good doc, no find a GREAT doc. Get a complete workup so you'll know if it's you, if it's him or if it's both of you. Learn exactly what your health insurance policy coverage is for infertility.

Most of all, learn your body.

Learn how to determine when you are ovulating. Remember we only ovulate for a few hours so timing is of the utmost importance.
Visit https://www.storkotc.com/ovulation/ for tips to help you determine when your ovulating and an online ovulation calculator.
Then check out some of the natural alternative aids, like Stork OTC Home Conception Device. Stork OTC is available over the counter, no prescription needed and no clinic visit needed.

For a limited time when you buy Stork OTC at select Target stores in the family planning section near the ovulation test kits or Target.com you'll get a $15 Target gift card.
My infertility journey was one of the lowest points of my life. I know what it's like to not have kids and want them and that's why I share my story. I hope it gives hope to couples who are longing to have a family of their very own. Hubby and I were blessed with three boys and a little old lady who we treasure as it was truly a journey.

I think it is wonderful the Stork is out there helping those women who may be have a difficult time getting pregnant. Will share this with many of my friends to help spread the word. Nice to see a company helping.
Stork sounds like a great tool to help with conception. It can be so hard to get pregnant!
What a great post. Fertility issues are something that so many couples struggle with, and they feel like they are all alone. It's great when bloggers are brave enough to put themselves out there like that to help others.

What a great giveaway! So many people struggle with infertility, I can't begin to imagine how difficult it is. It is stressful enough as it is, it is nice to know there are products like this out there to help people conceive.
I struggled with infertility myself. I appreciate you sharing your story. I was able to have three children amidst my miscarriages. They are precious to me.

A am one of the lucky ones who didn't struggle with this, but I have some friends who, up until now are TTC. I will share this with them.

My sister struggled with infertility for years. She tried different methods, doctors, etc and didn't see any result! She gave up and decided to take a break from work. She went to Bali and came home with a positive result!
It's not easy to conceive and there are couples who go through so much before they can conceive and have a baby. Stork sounds like a reliable solution and I sure hope that couples give it a try.
Jennifer Sikora said…

It is really good to know that there is a product out here like this for people needing it. That sounds really difficult to go through.

Infertility is a heartbreaking word. It's great that there are things like this to help.

It's so sad that infertility is even a thing. I do love that there are products like this that can help out. That's always a good thing.
I have a family member who is dealing with PCOS and infertility. Good to know there are tools that can help!

I am super thankful that I didn't struggle with major infertility problems. When I was trying to get pregnant with my youngest, we thought that something was up when I didn't get pregnant right away. We ended up not trying any treatments and went with whatever happens. It did take 18 months to get pregnant and I remember telling my husband that I was late that I might be pregnant. He picked up a test on the way home. I kinda knew that I was but I didn't want to be disappointed so I waited until the next morning. Sure enough, those lines showed up quickly.
Eloise said…

My best friend is dealing with this! Actually, they're married and together for 10 years! I'm pretty sure this could help.
Karlyn Cruz said…
I'm thankful that there are products could help for those who struggle infertility issues. I actually didn't know it before and I know someone who will need this.
Rebecca Swenor said…
This is great information for those struggling with infertility. It is so import to both get checked by the doctor so you know what is going on with you both. The Stork products are such an blessing to so many people and they are always adding more things to help those that want to be parents. Thanks for sharing these tips and your story.
