Our patients often tell us hearing and reading other people's stories about infertility helped them realise that they’re not alone in having trouble conceiving and gave them more strength to cope with their own journey.
Sometimes reading about other people’s experiences can be a good way to gain some perspective on your own situation.
While we can explain assisted conception to you and outline your treatment, to truly understand how IVF feels, it's better to hear it from someone who's been through it.
So, here are some real patient stories that tell it like it really is - warts, tears and all.
If you'd like to share your IVF experiences - the highs, the lows, the funny side and the devastating parts - with us and our cmmunity, please let us know. Tell us about how you felt during the two week wait. Tell us how you coped with dear Aunt Geraldine asking you when you're having kids for the umpteenth time. We'd like to hear it all. You can send us your story and a picture using the form below.
If you do not have a story, but just want to share an image with us which we can post to our site or social media, please also use the form below.
Please be aware that we are making other people’s experiences available in the hope that reading about another’s journey may support you in yours, but that they are for your information only. The views expressed in them are personal to the individual contributors, and are not those of Genea. Further, any advice contained in them is in no way sanctioned by Genea and should not be relied upon as each IVF journey presents its own unique circumstances. We have an obligation to protect the privacy of our patients, so we will change identifying details (particularly names) on any stories that are submitted. As well, we reserve the right to edit anything we feel is inappropriate.
