One day I will be a proud parent within the RSC family, and so can you!
I know what it is like to not be able to conceive. While I struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), it is not the major factor in my dilemma. I have been in a same-sex relationship for three-and-a-half years and recently the conversation of starting a family as a lesbian couple has come up.
Some people have asked, “How and when are you going to have a baby?” They do not understand it is not so easy for us to answer that question. We have a long and costly process ahead that includes, but is not limited to, fertility testing, sperm selection, follicular monitoring, artificial insemination, intrauterine insemination (IUI), possible surgeries, countless appointments and an extensive treatment plan.
I have not been with RSC for very long but in the short amount of time I have been here, I have learned a great deal regarding specific treatment plans and met a lot of genuine people who work here.
Before coming here, I would say that I had little hope of becoming a parent without an immense amount of blood, sweat, tears and money. But now that I have been educated in the different treatment insurance and financial options, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. One day soon, I too, can be a proud parent within the RSC family, and so can you.
