Brava! And a good challenge for shy people like me -- I will take it to heart.

Can I switch to your OB-GYN?

Thanks for the good word and the challenge.

I've learned this lesson recently, and have become a lot more outspoken and an advocate for my own care (which for many, is a really hard thing to do, but necessary). Being the poster child for SIF, I feel like I must keep the conversation going on the outside, because you never know who you might touch along the way.

Kudos to you for making a difference.

You are completely right. Unfortunately, I can look back at my painful history and identify times when I could have stepped up and said something, but didn't. I have come a long way since then - and will most likely think of you and your challenge whenever something like that happens again. See - you're a role model!

Since so few of us have any female support network filling us in on the gory, painful details of these experiences, it's necessary to put it in a brochure, frankly. Things your mom should have told you...

I think there should be one for ectopics, too! I'll get cracking on it, once I get through the experience...

Hi, have you seen this? It looks like the National Woman's Law Center is taking up your mission.

Hi,

I'm checking out my fellow 35+ IF'ers in Mel's (Stirrup) list and found you. I'm sorry you lost your baby. (But it is so good to hear about being able to conceive naturally at your age!)

Doctors nowadays are so task-oriented that they spend only as much time as they need to with you. It does not foster a lot of thoughtful conversations. Of course, if the patient was a willing sheep who has not researched her condition, she may not even think about asking for more information.

The internet has been a great resource for me to educate myself about IF and also other women's experience. It has armed me on what to expect and what to ask.

Anyway, I wish you well on your next steps!
