Four Alternatives to Consider if You're Not Ready for IVF

ivf Jun 20, 2020

I'm just not ready for this!

Have you ever said that?

👟 Maybe your friend asked you to lace up for a 10K, but you’re barely able to get in your daily neighborhood walk.

🐶 While you’d love a four-legged “best friend”, perhaps your living space or work schedule isn’t the best for welcoming a furry friend right now.

🎂 Perhaps you found a recipe for a decadent 27-ingredient French dessert, but your weeknight meals are all you can manage…and that’s on a good day!

Sometimes you’re just not ready for things that life has to offer. 

And that’s A-OK!!

If you've been on your fertility journey for any length of time, maybe you weren’t ready when your physician offered you these three little letters:


For some couples, IVF (in vitro fertilization) can be a welcome “solution” to their fertility struggles. For others, those three letters stand for nothing more than Indecision, Vacillation, and Fear

 Perhaps IVF brings up reservations like:

  • Financial burdens or inabilities
  • Risks of the invasive procedures
  • Your moral or faith-based beliefs
  • Low success rates compared to the high cost
  • Increased stress and fear of uncertainties
  • Not yet being in agreement with your partner about pursuing IVF

So what do you do when your doctor tells you that IVF is your next step, but you’re too weak in the knees to even stand?

I had the privilege of writing a guest blog post for my friend Michelle Streeter over at Thrive Through IVF. Michelle is an IVF support coach, and she helps her clients navigate their emotional roller coasters so they can THRIVE through IVF.

In my article Four Things You Can Try Before IVF If You’ve Been Diagnosed with “Unexplained” Infertility, you’ll learn FOUR non-invasive next steps you can take if the only thing you can say to IVF is, "I’m just not ready for this.”

And the best part? These next steps are all ones that can enhance your natural fertility!
