All Members
a private place where women who have been diagnosed as "infertile" can join forces & help each other
Welcome to the infertilees community.

If you're looking for a supportive place for women who have been diagnosed as infertile, you are welcome to join our group.

How to join:

Read the mission statement and the community introduction template(below). Then all you need to do is remember to follow the rules when you're posting and use the introduction template to post an introduction within the first 7 days of your new membership.

Mission statement:

This is a community for women that have been diagnosed as 'infertile' who are trying to achieve a pregnancy despite fertility challenges. This community recognizes that infertility is a difficult thing to cope with, and it strives to be a place of refuge where women can ask questions, discuss concerns, share resources, support and help each other, and open up and talk about any issues.

Community Ground Rules:

1. You must be experiencing infertility, or have gone through infertility in the past. Infertility means you have been trying to conceive unsuccessfully for 1 year if you are under 35, 6 months if over the age of 35, or have been previously diagnosed with some condition which can cause infertility (ie PCOS, Endometriosis, etc). Impatience is not a fertility issue. If you do not fall into these categories, then please, out of respect for our members, shuffle on over to our sister community trying4ababy instead.
2. Be supportive of others. Offer support to others when you can, post information that will be helpful for others, and ask for support when you need it. There's no need to feel like you're burdening others here or that you have to pretend everything is okay when you're feeling frustrated or angry or sad. Here you can vent away, type out your frustrations, and get your feelings out. Also, nothing here is too much information, so feel free to give us all the gory details or ask questions.
3. Pregnancy announcements are welcome. Members here may be sensitive about pregnancy news, so be sensitive if you're announcing a pregnancy.
4. Be sensitive to other members. Be sensitive and supportive towards your fellow members. Never offer an unkind word or anything that may be hurtful, as we're all here to help and support each other.
5. No advertising.


Below is a community introduction template that you can use to post your introduction.
