…when my personal infertility journey started, my professional AND personal worlds were turned upside down. After two failed embryo transfers with 5 cycles of IVF and one egg donor cycle, I began to question everything.
Would you feel safer if you were being treated by a doctor who had the same condition you had? Some physicians can be reluctant to go public with their own health problems..
But others are more open about their struggles..
Would you be in safer hands if your doctor had the same illness as you? We hear from a dermatologist with a skin complaint, a psychiatrist with depression, an oncologist who survived cancer and a maternal fetal medicine specialist who couldn’t conceive.
Anyone who has gone through infertility treatments and is fortunate to become pregnant knows that you become very attached to the staff and doctors who take care if you during such a strenuous and emotional process.
