I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Infertility Research

I've been attending some infertility support groups that I found on the RESOLVE website http://www.resolve.org/ and from our meeting I learned about the following research study I want to share with you. Please take a few minutes (I think it took me about 5 minutes to complete) and check this out!

Infertility Research Study

Be part of an important infertility research study!

Are you between 18 and 45 years of age?

Are you currently receiving treatment for infertility?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to participate in a research study evaluating the impact of infertility treatment.

The purpose of this research study is to investigate the impact of infertility treatment on the emotional well-being of women.

Participants are being asked to complete a brief survey available online or in paper form. Your participation will benefit the areas of medicine and counseling as well as other women and couples experiencing infertility. If you would like to take the survey online just click on this link (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/infertility). If you would prefer a paper copy please contact me. This study is being conducted by Heather Hanney, a doctoral candidate in the Counselor Education department of the University of Florida.

Please contact Heather Hanney at 561-318-8299 or hlh1@ufl.edu for further information.

I did the survey. Made me realise how depressed I am, but how happy I am with my marriage!

Thanks for your sweet post on my blog. It's encouraging to hear from someone who's been there!

I did the survey. Thanks for posting it. Anything to bring infertility into the open is great in my book. Thanks. :)

Is the survey limited to people that are currently going through infertility treatment or does past treatment qualify?
