<p>Richard and Rosie started trying to conceive after five years of being together but, two and a half years and countless prenatal vitamins and ovulation kits later, there hadn't been even a phantom pregnancy. So began their adventure into IVF, via blood tests, sperm tests, injections and probes, becoming involuntary experts on embryology through failure, despair, persistence and success.</p><p>After 4 years, 3 different clinics, 2 positive pregnancy tests and 1 miscarriage, they finally had a successful pregnancy.</p><p>GET A LIFE is the perfect down-to-earth guide for anyone thinking of embarking on fertility treatment. It's two books in one, a book of advice for women and a survival guide for men, each chapter mirrored but with very different experience and advice. IVF is terrifying, awful and extraordinary in equal measures for both partners. </p><p>GET A LIFE shares Richard and Rosie's ride on the fertility roller coaster, bringing you the funny, emotional and physical sides of IVF. It is an invaluable guide from both perspectives on how to get through the process in one piece.</p>

<p>En <i>El arte de no desesperar cuando no estás esperando</i>, Boggs desmenuza con destreza su tiempo de espera en una extensa contemplación de la fertilidad, las elecciones y los múltiples caminos que puedes tomar para construir tu vida y formar una familia. Y narra, con gran empatía, historias complicadas de parejas que deciden adoptar, o consideraron la reproducción asistida o los vientres de alquiler, frente a otras historias de hombres y mujeres que escogen tener una vida sin hijos.<br />Esta brillante y personal exploración narra de forma elocuente las diferentes facetas de la fertilidad a través de ejemplos de ámbitos muy diversos, como el reino animal, la literatura, el cine, la medicina, la ciencia o la cultura popular. Belle Boggs ha recibido el elogio de la crítica («Este libro es, al mismo tiempo, un correctivo y un bálsamo, un manual y un desmentidor de mitos. Boggs ha hecho algo digno, bonito y loable con este libro: le ha dado calor y alma a un tema frío y clínico. El milagro de la vida, podríamos decir», <i>The New York Times</i>) con este ensayo cuyo origen fue un artículo de la autora en la revista <i>Orion</i> que tuvo una increíble repercusión y se publicó en otros medios como <i>Harper’s Bazaar</i>.</p>

<p><b>A sharp-eyed exploration of </b><b>the promise and peril of having children in an age of genetic tests and interventions</b></p><p>Is screening for disease in an embryo a humane form of family planning or a slippery slope toward eugenics? Should doctors tell you that your infant daughter is genetically predisposed to breast cancer? If tests revealed that your toddler has a genetic mutation whose significance isn’t clear, would you want to know?</p><p>In <i>The Gene Machine</i>, the award-winning journalist Bonnie Rochman deftly explores these hot-button questions, guiding us through the new frontier of gene technology and how it is transforming medicine, bioethics, health care, and the factors that shape a family. Rochman tells the stories of scientists working to unlock the secrets of the human genome; genetic counselors and spiritual advisers guiding mothers and fathers through life-changing choices; and, of course, parents (including Rochman herself) grappling with revelations that are sometimes joyous, sometimes heartbreaking, but always profound. She navigates the dizzying and constantly expanding array of prenatal and postnatal tests, from carrier screening to genome sequencing, while considering how access to more tests is altering perceptions of disability and changing the conversation about what sort of life is worth living and who draws the line. Along the way, she highlights the most urgent ethical quandary: Is this technology a triumph of modern medicine or a Pandora’s box of possibilities?</p><p>Propelled by human narratives and meticulously reported, <i>The Gene Machine</i> is both a scientific road map and a meditation on our power to shape the future. It is a book that gets to the very core of what it means to be human.</p>

<h3><strong>"Hilarious & Heartbreaking" </strong>✮✮✮✮✮</h3><h3><br /></h3><h4><strong>Will there be light at the end of the birth canal? </strong></h4><p>Does the word ‘endometriosis’ make you want to stick a fork in your eye? No? </p><p>Then perhaps this book isn’t for you. It’s funny, and (sometimes alarmingly) frank. It contains an impressive array of synonyms for ‘vagina’ and it’s certainly NSFW.</p><p>It’s about having a devil womb and a hot knife lodged in a shoulder. It’s about becoming blackly bitter and twisted in infertility, and then slowly finding a way to untwist.</p><p>It’s part memoir, part dark comedy, wrapped up loosely as a journal full of TMI and quirk.</p><p>Let me put it this way: If Helen Fielding and Marian Keyes were to go through IVF, and use Caitlin Moran as a surrogate, this book would be their baby.</p><p><br /></p><p><strong>'The Underachieving Ovary' is an honest and satisfying must-read for anyone battling endometriosis or infertility. Start reading it today.</strong></p><p><br /></p><hr /><p><em>What fellow authors are saying:</em></p><p>"It's real, and raw, and remarkable, with laugh-out-loud, choke-on-your-tea moments." <em>-- Melissa Delport</em></p><p>"This book is just so brilliantly written. So funny. So sad. So impressive ...a page turner of a suspense story: well I am in awe. Should this not be an Oprah choice?" <em>-- Erica Platter</em></p>

This eBook is a compilation of beneficial information on trying to conceive with fertility treatments, specifically invitro fertilisation and will guide you step-by-step on a journey through: <br /><br />The things to consider and the tests to do before deciding that you need fertility treatments,<br /><br />What you could expect at your initial fertility consultation, <br /><br />Tips on how to choose the clinic that’s right for you,<br /><br />The stages of a standard IVF, frozen and natural cycle,<br /><br />Suggested activities during your 2-week-wait,<br /><br />Additional genetic tests to consider after repeated implantation failures or miscarriages,<br /><br />Finding an IVF support group where you will feel comfortable as well as explanations of the many abbreviations used within them,<br /><br />Notes on alternative treatments to support IVF, such as acupuncture and fertility massage,<br /><br />Advice on how to keep it together when the hormonal medication is trying to drag you down,<br /><br />Fertility friendly recipes and a collection of 125 valuable tips on everything from administering shots, to maintaining your relationship, nutrition and much more – both lovingly put together by another IVF veteran, Rachel Campbell of Sprout & Co.<br /><br />Bianca Smith has undergone 8 IVF embryo transfers using her own and donor eggs. Amongst other supporting procedures, she has had a hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, intralipid infusions, endo scratch, embryo glue, assisted hatching, and embryoscope, all of which she describes in detail, including what they are, who should have them and what they involve.<br /><br />All the information in this IVF guide is based on Bianca’s personal research, experience and interviews with other women who are or have been through fertility treatments. It is does not claim to have any medical endorsement, but is written in a casual, ‘girlfriend to girlfriend’ manner, and will be a great pocket companion throughout your IVF journey.<br /><br />From the author…<br /><br />If we had known even half the things we know today, we would have been so much better prepared for what was coming. <br /><br />A resource book would have been a lighthouse while I sailed through the dark and so I put together this guide, to equip other individuals or couples embarking on and also still in the middle of this journey with at least the basic knowledge they need to navigate the rough seas of fertility treatments and IVF. <br /><br />The information in this eBook is only a fraction of all the information out there. <br /><br />All information is an attempt to bring together everything that I have learnt along the way to make life a little easier for you on your journey than it was for me and I sincerely hope it will do exactly that for you. <br /><br />I feel positive that with this guide, much of your initial stress in knowing where to start and what route to pursue will be eliminated. <br /><br /><br />
