When a doctor can’t pinpoint why you are unable to conceive, an empty diagnosis like “unexplained infertility” does nothing for your hope or optimism. You already feel like your body doesn’t work right – you deserve to find out exactly what’s out of whack.
The last thing any woman who is trying to conceive needs to hear is that she should be patient. It’s a statement that is dismissive, unhelpful, and stressful. If anything, a woman who has been trying to get pregnant without success is a shining example of patience. Patience is a state of being that has been forced upon her, whether she likes it or not. You are ready to act – and that is what holistic healing allows.
Your doctor has dismissed your concerns about why you’re not getting pregnant. He or she thinks you’re overreacting. You’ve been called hormonal or impatient. None of this treatment is fair. How you feel is valid, and so are any theories you have about why you’re not getting pregnant.
