Video: CNY Fertility Center Celebrates National Infertility Awareness Week 2012

by

Dr. Rob:  Hi!  How are you today?  {{vspace8}}
Lisa:  I’m great, Dr. Kiltz, how are you?{{vspace8}}
Dr. Rob:  Awesome and amazing.  A beautiful day in the universe.  A great spring and sunshine!  We have ducks!  We have a pair of mom and dad, husband and wife ducks at CNY Fertility.  You were going to talk about Infertility Awareness Week.{{vspace8}}
Lisa:  Yes.  National Infertility Awareness Week really hosted by RESOLVE, that organization we’re really involved with it.  It’s a wonderful week:  tons of great articles come out, there’s a lot of information out there and support—April 22-April 28th.  You will be having a great teleworkshop on April 23rd with Kristen Magnacca to celebrate.{{vspace8}}
Dr. Rob:  We’re celebrating fertility awareness.  We were just talking about this a moment before about how our thoughts make our reality.  The practice with faith is that you are fertile.  You should begin to think that.  It works into every cell of your body and creates the vibration and attracts that fertility.  It’s practice.  We think it’s hard and I’m going to say it’s a challenge but really it’s just a daily practice of “I am fertile”.  Learning by connecting with people.  When you share a story and connect with them, when you write it down in a journal; it’s amazing how it begins to change the energy within you and it actually creates higher levels of the good hormones, and the good molecular energy in the body that creates that fertility that you desire.{{vspace8}}
Lisa:  It’s so important to use those words, and to be kind with ourselves especially during challenging times.  Maybe when you’re in the middle of a cycle and you’re not sure how it’s going to turn out or maybe if you just got news that you weren’t so happy about, so be careful with your words.  They impact you every time you say “I’m infertile, I’m infertile” it creates negativity within the body.{{vspace8}}
Dr. Rob:  It does.  It took me a while to learn this.  I now understand how powerful it is for all of us.  We’re eighty percent the mind and twenty percent the motion so the trick is to practice more in the mind.  It’s psychology.  With love, kindness, and generosity every day amazing things come.{{vspace8}}
Lisa:  We hope that you celebrate National Fertility Awareness week with us (we changed it over to “Fertility” Awareness)…{{vspace8}}
Dr. Rob:  “Fertility” Awareness, yes…{{vspace8}}
Lisa:  Let us know if there’s any additional support that we can offer you.  We have some great events and some wonderful workshops, and exciting opportunities coming up this spring.  We’re really going to be celebrating all aspects of fertility.{{vspace8}}
Dr. Rob:  Like Lisa said, if you have questions, comments, concerns, thoughts, share them with us on www.cnyfertililty.com website.  We have blogs, we have Fertile Friends, and we have support groups.  We integrate eastern and western medicine.  How powerful yoga, acupuncture, massage, meditation, and journaling as it adds so many great things to our lives!{{vspace8}}
Lisa:  It really does!  We hope to hear from you during the next month as we celebrate.  Please contact us with any thoughts or questions.{{vspace8}}
Dr. Rob:  God Bless, enjoy!{{vspace8}}

Video: Finding Strength and Support After an Unsuccessful IVF

by

Hi.  My name is Lisa Stack, and I’m the CNY Fertility Support Coordinator.  In my Words of Support and Encouragement article this week, I mentioned that I’ve been getting a lot of support requests from clients who have been returning after a first, second, or third IVF cycle that wasn’t successful.  I know that this can be incredibly disappointing.  Even if you’re just doing IUI cycles or Clomid cycles, you get your hopes built up, a lot of confidence into the cycle, there’s a lot of hope if you’re trying something new-maybe stepping up to a greater level of technology or intensive care.  I know that it can be very disappointing if the cycle is negative.
However, I would like to remind you that we do learn a great deal about you with each cycle, especially with IVF.  If you’ve gone through your first cycle, your second cycle, and you still have not conceived yet, we’re still learning because you are unique.  Although we have many great medication protocols and treatments that we can do for many clients, not one protocol fits everybody.  We have to play a little bit and try things out, seeing if things work, seeing how you respond and really kind of assessing where we came from and where we’re going.  I know it can be frustrating, but please just be patient.  We are taking our time because we want to make sure that we do things correctly, and that we do treat you in the best way possible.
It may take a little bit of time to get the correct medication protocol for you, but every time we do a cycle, every time we do an ultrasound or blood work, it’s not just tedious work.  We are learning something from you and we’re learning how your body reacts and responds to various medications.  We learn how you react from month to month.  These are all really important details that we need to create a great picture of who you are, who you are as a family, and how we can best help you to conceive.  I know that it can be disappointing, but hang in there.  Just know that every time we do a cycle or every time we draw your blood or do an ultrasound, we’re learning and we’re getting a greater picture of who you are and how best to support your fertility.
If you’d like a little bit of extra support this month, we’ve had some great support groups, and we have some great webinars left as well; especially Dr. Kiltz’s webinar this month with Kristen Magnacca and the Interactive Fertility Support Webinar at the end of the month.  Next month, we’ll be having our great support groups as well.  So there’s tons of resources out there for you.   Go look at our calendars on www.cnyfertility.com and www.cnyhealingarts.com and you’ll be able to get a better idea of where you fit into our support schedule and what may help you.  again, hang in there and we will get the process right, but sometimes it takes a little bit of time.
