Trying to Conceive Success Stories

How long were you trying to conceive? How did you feel during the process? Were you told that your chances of conceiving were less than 1%? Have you beaten the odds? Do you need inspiration?

This page is for you to both share your story and to be inspired by the stories of others. Many of the women on these pages were told that they'd never conceive on their own. However, age, FSH levels, sperm counts, PCOS and having only 1 fallopian tube didn't stop these women from writing their own stories of success.

If you've overcome infertility, sharing your experience will help other women and men learn about how taking charge of your fertility can be one of the most empowering experiences in life. Writing about the progress you've made in both understanding and improving your fertility will help to spread the word about the power of proactive health care.

There are many paths to empowered fertility. Let's spread the word and give others hope. Thanks you for taking the time to share your story.

If you encounter any errors when posting your success story, please immediately Contact Me and I will have the problem fixed ASAP. Please be sure to let me know if you use a PC or Mac and which browser you use like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Safari. Thank you for helping me keep my site running smoothly.

Let's change the stories surrounding fertility and pregnancy. Informed, empowered, inspired women can change their personal story and the world. Please contribute your story to add power to our fertility revolution. Or if you need inspiration and hope, read on to see how many women have gone on to conceive against the odds.
