Bud A-Z Fertility Guide



Too Much Information can send you round the bend. Who do you listen to and who do you ignore? (Yes, we appreciate the irony.) For your sanity, it’s important to set boundaries.


Let’s start with friends and family. Trying to conceive is no one’s business but yours: if you don’t want to tell them, don’t. If you don’t want advice: ask them to stay stum. Remember, this is your journey and other people’s input, albeit well-intentioned, can often make you feel like a failure - you’re not.

When it comes to personal research, it’s the same as when you’re sick: if you Google it, you’ll probably wish you hadn’t.

Begin by getting medical advice from your doctor, and only ask people you trust or use reputable sources of information.
