There’s More Than One Way To Build A Family

Families come in alipstick-comes-in-more-than-1-colourll mixes, matches, colors and variations. They are also made in more than one way. πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ‘¨πŸ½πŸ‘©πŸΏπŸ‘¨πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΎπŸ‘¦πŸΌ

What I love about my job is that I help make families for people who want them more than anything. πŸ‘«Β Whether it’s a heterosexual couple that has been trying for years, a same sex couple that needs donor sperm or egg, a situation where someone wants to avoid passing on a hereditary disease, or a single female that doesn’t have a partner but wants to start a family on her own ~ everyday I help bring people together to create families. πŸ’š

It doesn’t matter if you adopted an embryo, underwent IVF, used donor sperm – or had a gestational carrier. What matters is the love, effort and energy you put into making your family yours. 😍

Your family is by definition – what you want it to be, and nobody should tell you otherwise. πŸ’‹

How Much Sex Should You Have?

how-much-sex-do-you-haveWhy do we ask the questions we ask?!

Everyday I ask questions that make most patients uncomfortable, including “How much sex do you have”? I see them glance sideways at their partner and shrink into their seat.Β Is it ok to be saying it out loud?! πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ

YES! Please do!

We need to ask very direct, personal questions. It helps us to decide what diagnostic tests and treatment plan is best suited to your unique situation.🎈

When I ask my patients how much intercourse they have – what I’m really determining is if it is frequent enough to give the sperm and the egg a chance to meet!

If trying to get pregnant, how frequent is enough?!?!

Answer: 1-2 times per week (on most weeks) if you are not using ovulation predictor test kits or tracking your cycles.
