Dealing with Infertility for three years gave me plenty of time to find resources all over the Internet. People were always amazed by the amount of knowledge I had regarding Infertility but it definitely helped me. It helped me to understand what was going on with my body, it gave me the power to tell my OB/GYN that I didn’t want to use them anymore, I wanted to be seen by a specialist who dealt with true Infertility and it gave me something to do.
I was pretty much attached to the IF Board on The Bump. There’s so many acronyms, different hormones that could be affecting your fertility, medications to take, etc. that I learned a lot from these ladies.
Fertility Friend has a great tutorial that every woman who is struggling to get pregnant should read and help understand their bodies better. I don’t think that as soon as a couple decides to have children that they should be charting and stress themselves out with all of this BUT if you’re curious about it, it explains everything and has an easy to use chart to chart your monthly cycle.
My RE has a Facebook page, which was great to see so many success stories and to commiserate with other women who were struggling.
There's so many places on the Internet to help those who are struggling with IF get support or learn more about what their options are.
