In the news

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine had their annual meeting last month (I think that's why Dr. K was MIA during my betas). Anyway, I was browsing the highlights of their meeting and came across this blurb on how women with 'O' blood type are more likely to have diminished ovarian reserve. This caught my eye because I'm 'O +'. A longer article is found here.

Last week when thumbing through Newsweek I saw this story about early-life experiences can cause permanent changes in eggs and sperm. Essentially things that happened to your grandparents or great-grandparents can negatively affect your fertility.

So there are some more variables to factor in to my infertility issues. Sigh.
