Hi. Please. The new slideshow format is awful and takes forever. It's like 14 separate websites, and I'm using a brand new computer. I have read other member's comments that are very similar to mine in that takes for-ev-er for them to load, please listen to your readers. And that menu bar thing that slides down and goes away on each post is not cool either. Thanks for the tips though.

Oh wow all I need is less coffee and prenatals?!?! Despite having done everything on this list and MORE , I will just stop paying the RE with 25+ years of experience I have been seeing for 4 years now. Shall I make the $8,000 check out to you for my next ivf ?

ahem-... ahem-excuseme

I can't stand slideshow format! Please get rid of it. It ruins the article, because people don't want to keep flipping through. So frustrating.

I am on an ipad. I couldn't make it halfway through the slide show because it is so slow, taking forever to load. I already can't watch the videos on this site. I guess it's time to stop watching the slideshows now too.



I really thought this would be more than exercise and eat right, but I guess women in perfect Heath are never infertile? Funny, that.

Agreed.. slideshow's gotta go. I just started taking conceiveeasy... supposedly has 86% success rate within 3 months & works on 7 diff causes of infertility. Hopefully i have one of them b/c $40 is relatively cheap.
