Infertility issues are emotionally draining. Whether you are just starting in your journey of seeking treatments, or if you have had many unsuccessful pregnancies, you should focus on getting support to keep your mood up. Infertility doctors can, of course, support you medically and give you guidance in the office, but what happens when you step out of their infertility clinic? We’ve put together some infertility resources to assist you during your journey.
