You might be wondering how a car transmission has anything to do with the topic of fertility, but stick with me and you will see.
Just a few hours ago we loaded up the family in our not-so-family-friendly car to pick up the family car from the transmission specialist. As we were driving home it occurred to me that there is a great parallel to be drawn from my car’s ailments to those facing infertility struggles.
A few months ago my husband and I noticed our car was stalling between first and second gears. So, we took it in for our regular tune up, oil change, etc. to see if there were any problems. Nothing was confirmed so the mechanics recommended we see a transmission specialist. After taking the car to the transmission specialist a diagnostic test was run to rule out any major issues. None were found, but the problem still remained. The specialist recommended we first try some basic treatments like having the transmission oil replaced and see if that would eliminate the problem before we moved onto any other services that would be significantly more expensive and time consuming. Since we have just picked the car up we don’t yet know if the new oil has solved the car’s problem, but we took the first and most inexpensive steps before leaping into a complete transmission rebuild or other major repair.
So, how does this story have anything to do with infertility struggles? Let’s look at the same story but now in terms of infertility…
A few months ago my husband and I concluded that we were not getting pregnant in the amount of time we thought was reasonable based at my age. So, I went in to my OB/GYN for my regular check-up to see if there were any problems. Nothing was confirmed so the doctor recommended I see an infertility specialist. The specialist recommended we first try some basic treatments like ovulation test kits and conception-friendly lubricants such as ToConceive to see if that would help us achieve pregnancy before we moved onto any other treatments that would be significantly more expensive and time consuming. Since we have just started using ToConceive along with ovulation test kits we don’t yet know if this new treatment will help us get pregnant, but we took the first and most inexpensive steps before leaping into IVF or other more invasive treatments.
When you notice a problem in your car you wouldn’t go straight to the mechanic and ask them to rebuild the transmission or replace the engine, you would first try to correct the issue with basic, inexpensive treatments. Why should infertility be any different? We want to help you take that first step. Visit http://www.keytoconceive.com to read more about how ToConceive can help you get pregnant!
