Resolve is the National Infertility Association. Have you joined, yet? If not, I highly recommend you do. Besides sending you emails and newsletters chock full of research and resources regarding infertility and adoption, it’s also a great support system for those of us a little challenged in starting a family.
I joined Resolve after reading some infertility books back in 2008. I paid a very small due to be a member and I’ve never looked back. Hands down, this is one of the best decisions I’ve made regarding my infertility. Not to mention, your dues can be deducted on your taxes. Overall, a great investment.
What has Resolve done for me?
Well, for one they have sent me tons of articles regarding IVF and embryo transfer. This has been tremendously helpful during a very stressful situation. For those of you that have undergone IVF once or even multiple times, you know that once the eggs have been retrieved things go very quickly and you have to make HUGE decisions regarding your embryo’s in a very short amount of time. Literally, I found out the morning of my transfer how many embryo’s I had and what stage of development they were at. This left mere minutes to decide what to do with our precious babies while on valium and with a full bladder. Reading articles like the ones I got from Resolve made these decisions a little easier.
Also, did you know that Resolve is constantly offering programs that could provide you with free or discounted fertility treatments? Some of these are contests, others are grants that you apply for. Either way, this makes some of those out of reach Fertility treatments seem more attainable.
Resolve offers many other programs, such as local support groups, conferences, adoption information, Doctor information, and so on. I urge you to at least check out their website. Resolve really does make a difference.
