Since the 1980s, 16 states—Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas and West Virginia—have passed laws that require insurers to either cover or offer coverage for infertility diagnosis and treatment.

Disparities in access to infertility care and insurance coverage of infertility treatment represent marked injustices in US health care. The World Health Organization defines infertility as a disease. Infertility has multiple associated billing codes in use, as determined by the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. However, the often-prohibitive costs associated with infertility treatment, coupled with the lack of universal insurance coverage mandates, contribute to health care inequity, particularly along racial and socioeconomic lines.

Despite the expense associated with infertility treatment, the lack of mandated insurance coverage for this disease implies that infertility is a condition undeserving of financial assistance and minimizes its importance to patients.

Infertility is a disease with a substantial psychosocial burden, and the lack of affordable options may have significant detrimental effects on the quality of life of millions of Americans. Because of the current lack of universal insurance coverage mandates for ART, infertility is implicitly designated as a disease undeserving of financial support, leaving many patients unable to fulfill their reproductive goals. Improving access to care via broader insurance mandates and coverage plans would help rectify these disparities. The fundamental right to reproduce is currently under threat, and these disparities will only intensify if the financial barriers to infertility care are not directly and promptly addressed. (AMA Journal of Ethics, Dec 2018)

I could go on and on about this book, and I already have in my stories (check out my FAM highlight if you haven’t yet) so I’ll just share my biggest takeaways:
1. Charting your cycle using FAM allows you to know what’s happening today, based on right now, not an algorithm that’s using last month’s data - which could be correct but it could also be wrong.
2. Taking your temperature everyday may seem tedious, but it puts the power back in your hands and makes apps, bc, and other external stuff seem way less essential and that’s pretty empowering!
3. Fertility can be complicated- and you can actually play a huge role in solving fertility issues by providing your doctor with this kind of data.

Swipe to see what oils I use to support my hormones!
EndoFlex everyday over my thyroid and adrenal glands, SclarEssence capsules during my luteal phase and the first day or 2 of my period, and Ylang Ylang is a must for Epsom salt baths and diffusing!

As I mentioned yesterday, I got referred to a fertility clinic in Newmarket. Since then, I have been extremely nervous, unsure and scared but excited. There are a few things:
1. The clinic I was referred to has terrible reviews
2. The reality of not being able to conceive is hitting harder than anticipated. Going to a fertility clinic is something I thought I wanted to help figure out what’s going on, but now I’m terrified to find out
3. I know I’m overthinking things so I am trying not to and have to take it one day at a time until I get a phone call for our first appointment, but I am dreading the potential wait
.
.
.
I did ask to go to a specific clinic when I was there but my doctor felt that it was too far from me. I called back after viewing the terrible reviews and asked to be sent to the original one. Through all of you, I also found out about some really good ones near me and informed her of those options. I much rather drive wherever I have to, to ensure quality of care ✨ and I hope that whichever clinic she decides to send me to, will be a great one that can help us welcome baby #2 into our lives✨

I dont even have words to express how my husband and I are feeling today. After 3.5 years of ongoing fertility treatments, 1 failed IUI, 4 failed transfers, one 7 week miscarriage, 3 egg retrievals, one resulting in all abnormal embryos, 2 ERA cycles and 2 fibroid surgeries for me and one surgery for my husband, we graduated from our fertility clinic today.

After 3 years, we decided to leave the one clinic i felt very comfortable with but of course had no success. After the last failed FET in July we made the switch to a new clinic. Within this one month switch my we got pregnant naturally. It truly is a miracle. We did not believe it, it was really hard to be happy. Pregnancy after loss is emotionally extremely difficult. After my home test, i contacted my nurse right away. My HCG rose appropriately, our first ultrasound we saw both sacs and last weeks appt and todays we saw a nice strong heart beat and Baby D is growing 💙💕 We obviously have a long way to go but this is a huge milestone for us.
I am specifically writing this post to continue to inspire and give all of you amazing women HOPE. You have to believe in yourself and God. Obviously, we trust doctors and we need them but sometimes its out of their hands as well. Stay positive, stay strong, keep trying, dont lose hope.... #ivf #naturalpregnancy #ttcover35 #infertility #fertility #fet #iui #fibroidsurgery #pregnancy #hope #dontgiveup #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity #ivfwarriors #ivfsisters #fuckinfertility #7weeks #miraclebaby #miracleshappen #miracleshappeneveryday

Chicken and Leek Gratin
I love leek in creamy dishes and since autumn is approaching, this chicken and leek gratin was the perfect dish to create.
I used @geniusglutenfree seeded loaf to make the breadcrumbs!

I’m covering my eyes as I write this one 🙈, because coffee is my biggest weakness. While it’s not all bad in moderation, studies have linked high caffeine consumption (not just coffee--remember tea and soda count too!) to decreased fertility outcomes for both men and women. What does this mean in practical terms? During the 3-4 months prior to trying to conceive, you should consider limiting your caffeine intake to 100mg or less per day for optimal fertility outcomes. In real people talk that is one extra small cup of coffee (to give you context, a tall brewed coffee from Starbucks has 260mg & double shot has 150mg) or a cup of tea (black tea has 50mg typically per cup) per day. If switching to decaf is the route you’re taking, look for organic labels that use the Swiss Water method to decaffeinate. If you’re looking to swap up your routine entirely, consider a coffee alternative like 🍄 @foursigmatic to start your day.⁠⠀

Our Goddess Danu Loose Incense Blend has a sacred, divine Celtic Gaelic-Nordic scent enhancing the mind-body-spirit protection while cleansing your personal space, living spaces and bridging a strong and deep connection to the ancestors, spirit guides and power animals.

In ancient Ireland, there were more than a few races that existed. Among them was the Tuatha de Danann. The Tuatha de Danann was a magical race that possessed supernatural powers. Most of them were god-like creatures or divine beings that were being worshipped. This race was also known to believe in Danu, Goddess of Water, Sailors, Fertility, Agriculture, Motherhood, Mother of Faeries. She was sometimes referred to as the mother as she gave birth to all life in the land of the Celts and is also known as Danann, Ana and Anann.

She is the most ancient of all the Celtic deities and is associated with all water: the seas, wells, springs, and the Danube River. It is said that she gives all her children the magic of transformation, inspiration and wisdom.

Incense Blend: Wild Celtic Seaweed, Rowan Wood, Elderberry Ceremonial Blend

Each tin measures 2.5" dia. x 1" height 2 oz. Incense is made seasonally and when harvests are in stock. @rkartsstudio www.rkartsstudio.com or Etsy at rkartsstudiocville

Are you concerned about your egg quality? Please do not take AMH readings in isolation if you do it can make you feel hopeless. There are many ways to improve egg health including exercise, good nutrition, better sleep patterns, reducing stress and taking fertility appropriate supplements. Prior to ovulation the egg matures in a fluid filled follicle and needs energy for the journey ahead. An egg lives up to 24 hours so we need your body to be as healthy as possible. Contact me today to get the advice and support you need. #fertility #infertility #eggquality #conception #ivf #iui #pcos #fibroids #fertilityclinic

There is abundance everywhere. The question asked by the Empress, is do we recognize the Great Mothers gifts when we see them. How do we nurture ourselves and those around us with our own Great Mother energy. Can we live and love from an open heart? Or are we afraid of our own sexuality, sensuality, and passion? Be mindful of the line between nurturing and obsessing. What gift will you receive today? #Empress #GreatMother #Fertility #OpenHeart #Tarot

How do we nurture ourselves and those around us with our own Great Mother energy. Can we live and love from an open heart? Or are we afraid of our own sexuality, sensuality, and passion? Be mindful of the line between nurturing and obsessing. What gift will you receive today?#Empress #GreatMother #Fertility #OpenHeart #Tarot

If you’re trying to get pregnant, is your diet packed with foods that increase fertility?
According to a study of diet and fertility from Harvard Medical School, unlike other factors that you cannot control—such as age and genetics—eating certain foods and avoiding others is something you can do yourself to help improve your ovulatory function. "Eating as if you're already pregnant can actually help prime your body for conception," says Sarah Krieger, R.D., a nutritionist based in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Here's how to deliciously dine your way to a happy, healthy pregnancy by following a conception diet.

FERTILITY DIET 🥑 HEALTHY FATS ⁠

Increase your intake of healthy unsaturated fats. One study showed that the mono- and polyunsaturated fats in this category are associated with with better fertility outcomes in both men and women. Examples of these excellent healthy fats include:⁠

🥑Extra-virgin olive oil, avocado, nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, pecans), pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds⁠ 🐟Sunflower oil, flaxseed oil, soybean, walnuts, whole flax seeds, and fish (I recommend wild-caught sources)⁠
Choose healthy sources of saturated fat, in minimal to moderate amounts. Saturated fats include those found in whole milk, animal meat, cheese, coconut oil, and many commercially prepared baked goods. ⁠

Studies show that diets that are high in saturated fats (i.e. high amounts of animal products) are associated with poor fertility outcomes in men and women, in addition to contributing to higher cholesterol levels. For this reason, focusing on more plant-based meals and healthy, unsaturated fats in beneficial for your fertility. ⁠

However, bear in mind that cholesterol forms the backbone of the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone, so it isn’t all evil. Small amounts of meat, from grass-fed and pastured animals, are okay IF you want to maintain an omnivore diet. Even better would be obtaining small amounts of saturated fat from coconut oil (which I recommend cooking with if you’re heating it on the stove top) and other coconut products.⁠

Maybe it was the mayo I had on my veggie sandwich 3dpIUI. Or maybe it was the decaf pumpkin spice latte I had at 4dpIUI. It could have been the soft serve ice cream I had 12dpIUI. Or maybe none of these things made any bit of difference.
. . . . .
I know I’ve said this SO many times before but this one was supposed to be different. Although I didn’t respond perfectly to the medication switch, there were so many reasons to believe this one was going to work. But I have to accept that no amount of hope or signs from God and the universe can take away the pain we have in our hearts today. I’ll eventually pick myself up like I have every month for the last twenty months, but for now, I’m going to eat my weight in brownies.

What if I told you that regular SUNLIGHT would improve your hormonal health more than seed cycling or certain herbs like vitex? 🚺☀️
.
Listen, you could be eating the most ‘perfect’, anti-inflammatory, organic diet & taking your expensive supplements every day, but if your CIRCADIAN RYTHMN is out of whack, your hormones will be too 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
Our female menstrual cycle is massively influenced by nature’s light & dark cycles, hence the average women gets her period every 28 days (which is almost the same as the lunar/moon cycle). Being out of sync with nature can also impact our mood, energy levels & adrenal function! 😴
.
Every single day I’ve been making it a habit for me to get outside and expose my eyes to natural light - even if it’s for 5 minutes whilst I write an IG post like I am now 🙃 If you do the same, first thing in the morning upon waking, mid afternoon and around sunset, I GUARANTEE you will notice an improvement in your health 🌎
.
Many of my clients have some degree of adrenal dysregulation. The adrenals are responsible for producing cortisol, along with certain hormones like DHEA. During the day, we need strong levels of cortisol (but not too high), to get us out of bed and be productive. As the day goes on, cortisol levels naturally decline and melatonin (sleep hormone) rises! 👍🏼
.
Waking up super anxious or feeling like you are glued to the mattress, experiencing an energy crash at 3/4pm, barely being able to walk up the stairs to bed at 10pm due to exhaustion or feeling a ‘second wind’ of energy at 9pm are all signs that your adrenal glands are a bit ‘out of whack’ 😳
.
Most people stay indoors ALL DAY LONG, unless it’s to walk to their car or office and back. Sitting under fluorescent lighting throughout the day, but especially into the evening, is not great for hormonal health. After sunset, we need to dim our room lighting, ideally switch off technology or do use ‘hacks’ like wearing blue blocking glasses & turning on ‘night shift mode’ on tech devices📱
.
❗️START NOW❗️Whatever time of day it is, put down your phone for 5 minutes and get outside - Yes, even if it’s cloudy or raining. And if it’s 'too late', get off your phone & sleep 💤

“Well, I did it. I successfully gave myself a subcutaneous shot while at work tonight. It wasn't fun, and it wasn't as painless as my first cycle trigger shot, guess my husband is more gentle than I am, but I did it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am no stranger to shots. I actually get injections in my eyes and for a while I was doing that monthly. Because of those, I have severe anxiety around injection days. Luckily, my eyes are stabilizing and the injections have become less and less, but I didn't think I'd be able to do a trigger shot on my own, because of how anxious I get around my eye injections.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So tonight wasn't just about the trigger shot. It wasn't just about hoping my body ovulates, it was about finding strength in an area where I have only felt powerless and broken. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For years I've been plagued by fear, anxiety and hopelessness all based around injections. But tonight marks a new journey, one where my eyes are healed (and hopefully shot free for a very long time) and where I can do the things that are hard and scary. Because in the end, it's all going to be worth it.” — @batstitchbailey

As I sit in the office waiting for my fertility doctor to return with our plans for my rainbow babies 🌈👣 Admittedly, I’m nervous , I’m scared, I’m worried , I feel like I’m not in control of my body , Wondering if I am making the best decisions. I’m also optimistic that 2020 will be my year to get pregnant. 🙏🌈👣

Trying to get pregnant is a journey that requires hope, patience, discipline, commitment and consistency. faith in the things that you cannot see or control and lots and lots of pregnancy tests.

There is purpose in your season of waiting. I am learning to trust the journey even when I do not understand it. What feels like the end is often the beginning. You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. Just keep dreaming 🌈👣🙏

Mindfulness Meditation.

Meditating, even for a short time span, provides enormous benefits to those with a frequent practice. Meditation helps with concentration and stress relief, as well as increasing self-awareness and acceptance. It can lessen anxiety and depression, while increasing optimism, relaxation, and mental strength. You really have nothing to lose by giving meditation a shot. I personally love incorporating meditation 🧘‍♀️ for optimal #fertility, lower levels of cortisol, our stress hormone, have been linked to higher #pregnancy rates! .

My husband and I purchased our house four years ago. And this stain on the cement in our garage has been here since we moved it.
.
.
I always thought it looked like a baby in the womb. And at first, there was no real emotion behind it. It was just a cute, little baby that greeted me each morning as I got into my car. That was it. Nothing more, nothing less. As I passed by it, I would smile. “I can’t wait to have a baby.”
.
.
After each passing year, the struggle to have a baby of our own became more real and more emotional. And this cute little baby that once greeted me, now filled me with sadness. With anxiety. With shame. I would avoid it as I walked to my car. I felt as if it was almost taunting me now. It was a constant reminder of something I waned so badly, but couldn’t have.
.
.
Today, this innocent stain still remains in our garage. It still greets me every morning. It still looks like a baby to me. But instead of it triggering negative emotions, I try to look at it as a sign of hope. Something that is cheering me on during the journey. Something the reminds me to keep fighting.

I don’t have kiddos yet, but I know a lot of our healthy friends on here do, so I just have to share this incredible account I just found! @kids.eat.in.color Jennifer is so creative! One thing I’m always curious about for when I have kids and they inevitably end up around toxic food... how do you prevent them from eating it then craving it at home? Teach them to deny it? Only eat a little? I have no idea, all I have is a pug LOL but you know what! I’ve had him on a raw meat diet since he was 8 weeks old and he ALWAYS turns down the cheap junk treats! He only wants meat. 👀 Anywho, go check out Jennifer’s awesome account!

“My coworker asked me the other day, “why do you always leave the office for lunch? Do you go home?” The truth is...I don’t go home. I pull into a nearby parking lot and I cry in my car.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I cry after listening to a voicemail from my fertility clinic informing me that our IUI failed, again. I cry because a patient innocently talks with me about her pregnant daughter and how excited she is. I cry because someone I know is now pregnant and I just got my period. I cry because I’m sad.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I don’t do this every day. Some days I don’t even think about infertility. But other days all I do is think about how it’s been 3 years and I still don’t have a baby. This is infertility.”⠀

This is something I hate to admit. But in order to keep it “raw and real” it’s something I feel like I need to share.
.
.
Last month, my younger sister informed me that she was pregnant with her second child. We were sitting on the couch in her living room while our husbands were working outside. Typically, informing your sister you are pregnant should be a joyous occasion, but my infertility made it a sad one instead.
.
.
I could sense my sister was hesitant to tell me. She knows my husband and I have been struggling to have a baby of our own for the last 3 years. But when she said it, I couldn’t control the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that came over me. I congratulated led her and then we sat there silently, watching tv as I held back my tears.
.
.
On the drive home, I informed my husband of the news because he asked why I was so quiet. He responded with “oh” and we both remained silent the rest of the drive, but this time I couldn’t stop my tears from falling. We were in the middle of starting our second IUI, so we were both very emotional at the time.
.
.
Fast forward one month and I am nothing but happy for my sister. Not that I wasn’t happy for her initially, but I just felt sad for my husband and myself at the time. It sucks to feel like people are constantly passing you by. Especially when you are trying so hard to have the same things they have.
.
.
Am I still jealous of my pregnant sister? Duh! Is it a lot less? For sure. I think being happy for someone as you are in the midst of struggling to have the same thing is one of the hardest things a person can do. I commend all you ladies who try to do so.

It’s a new beginning for me today. The day I reinvent KLD for the 3rd time.

We started in CT in 2010, moved to DBN in 2014 and now we are off to CYBERSPACE🥂

I have decided to work online because let’s face it, it’s the easiest way for all of us. Imagine having your life coach on your phone- just a voice note away, or having a chat from your car as you drive home from work, or sending me your dreams in an email from the comfort of your bed before you close your eyes.

That’s what KLD is becoming. A space for women to work on fertility, motherhood, weight, emotions, food, health and hormones from your phone or desktop. With me on the other end💗

To creating and shifting and growing. 💗💗💗 #lifecoach #digitalcoach #womenswellness #fertility #health #weight #emotions #motherhood #food #hormones #hormonal-health #online

Retrieval Day!!! ⠀

Checked in at 5:00 AM, procedure was at 6:00 AM on the dot & I was home by 8:00 AM! It’s so crazy how so much preparation leads to such a quick procedure... ⏰ ⠀

My doctor retrieved 1️⃣9️⃣ eggs! ⠀

This over double from my last retrieval so we couldn’t be happier 🎉 🥂 ⠀

Now of these 19, my doctor explained 15 follicles were of a nice, large size (15 mm or greater) but that the smaller 4 had eggs too! We will not know until we get the call tomorrow afternoon from the embryologist how many of the 19 were mature & how many fertilized 🤞🏼⠀

For now, we are celebrating this amazing # of eggs & a good sperm sample! ⠀

A MILLION thank yous for all of the amazing messages, support & kindness all of you #infertilitysisters have shown me along the way. I’m so grateful for this community 👯‍♀️💕👯‍♀️
