Talking about infertility takes vulnerability. I will continue to #honormystory by sharing the most vulnerable parts of our journey navigating infertility. My diagnosis came after two years of doctors telling me “we don’t know what’s wrong,” “cysts just appear, we don’t know why,” “if we could fix it we would” and so on. All uneven lies and half truths that I just knew weren’t the answer. It wasn’t until I found a doctor 200 miles away who actually listened to me and heard my pleas until I received a diagnosis. I will never forget waking up from my surgery, hearing the words “stage 4” endometriosis. One of the worst I have ever seen in someone so young” coming from my doctors lips. A moment that will forever be etched in my mind. It would be that same doctor who held my hand and continued to fight for my fertility health for years to come.
I am always so amazed at the women who share their hearts about something that is so deeply personal. Why do we share? Because it is a message that needs to be heard! Infertility takes so much, but it will not take your voice or your openness to share your story! How will you continue to #changetheconversation and honor your story?
Psalm 17:1 Hear, O LORD, my righteous plea; listen to my cry. Give ear to my prayer
