As I mentioned in one of my blog posts (here) I have decided to write a memoir styled book about my fertility journey – From my diagnosis, the emotional turmoil that’s been experienced so far, IVF, to anything else in between. This is going to be a long work in progress as I want to include our IVF journey but we’re still in the process of saving money for this so it’s going to be a while haha!

Anyway I decided I’d like to enlist the help of those who also have fertility issues by including their thoughts, feelings, and advice too. I’ve written a couple of questions that I would really appreciate if you could answer, and please feel free to add anything else that you think may be helpful. I will not be taking your words as my own, you will be fully credited underneath your quote.

Thank you so much.

  1. How long have you had your diagnosis? What was it?
  2. What is one piece of advice you’d give to someones who’s just received their own diagnosis?
  3. What are some of the things that have helped you cope?
  4. How do you think you’ve changed or grown since your diagnosis?
  5. How has it effected your relationship with your partner? – Are you still together? How have you come through it?
  6. If you could go back to just after you received your diagnosis and tell yourself one thing, what would it be?
