Fertility LifeLines is a free and confidential educational service offering customized information and support to people with fertility health concerns. They have a toll free number 1-866-538-7879 (Monday through Friday from 8 am to midnight ET and Saturday and Sunday from 8 am to 6 pm ET) and a very informative and helpful website.
The website is broken up into 7 main areas:
- Fertility Health 101
- Difficulty Conceiving
- Initial Treatments
- Advanced Treatments
- Paying For Treatment
- My Fertility Plan
- Sereno Product Information
In Fertility Health 101, couples are introduced with the reality of trying to conceive. On the main page, they state:
You've decided you want to start a family. All around you, friends and family are making it seem that getting pregnant will be easy.
The truth is, conceiving can be difficult. So it can be helpful to take some time to become informed about fertility and conception. That can start with a quick reminder on the basics of biology followed by some tips on timing intercourse during a woman's monthly cycle and healthy living. It may also help to dispel some common myths about fertility.
One of the most helpful sections of the website is My Fertility Plan. The guide is helpful for planning possible treatments, and it also provides talking points for couples regarding financial and emotional considerations. It puts everything out in the open, and encourages couples to discuss and decide the fertility path they may want to follow.
