Eating Grapefruit Until I Find A Doctor

I thought we could do this on our own. I thought I could avoid sitting down with a doctor and telling them about my menstrual flow, my sex life, my eating habits and all the times I have cried alone in the shower after a negative pregnancy test. Sean has been so supportive and willing to do whatever we need but I’m not sure if he realizes what he may be ahead for him.  I am trying to avoid the semen analysis conversation and process at all costs right now.  There is nothing glamorous about dealing with infertility.

We currently take supplements, workout and are on a strict Paleo diet ( I will make a post about those things later this week) but now we are also ready to get on a waiting list to be seen by a reproductive specialist. We have heard it can take 6 to 8 months to get an appointment so we should have started like, a year ago.

I have been doing some research but it all seems so overwhelming. The information, the statistics , the cost. Will we need an IUI ? Will we need IVF? How are we going to pay for this all?

Until the appointment I am going to continue to gulp down my supplements with a grapefruit and pineapple core smoothie and pray (a lot). If you have an extra minute, can you send a prayer up for us? We promise to return the favor.


If you have any recommendation for a Reproductive Specialists based in Minnesota or surrounding areas, please leave us a comment or shoot us an email. We would appreciate it! – Ashley & Sean grapefruit
