Infertility Education through Cartoon Vids.

January 6, 2011 at 11:16 am (Gender, Culture and Female Sexuality., When you become a "we" : Information for couples coping with fertility issues.)

One of the lovely ladies at askaboutmrkh brought this series of cartoon videos to our attention. I think it is a fun way to look at infertility and though it is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, we can all come away with something. Here is the first one!

One Big Fat Question Mark.

January 5, 2011 at 12:01 am (Just wondering...)

This is kind of a continuation of my reflection on the whole getting-married-and-having-kids thing. I guess we can all agree that the natural progression in life means that following education, we “settle down” in our twenties and thirties – after all haven’t we got the partying of our late teens/early twenties out of our systems? Just recently, I feel like this theme has resurfaced in my life. For example, a friend of mine just got engaged over the Christmas holidays to her long term boyfriend. Also, right before I found out the good news, I had lunch with some old friends of mine – just to catch up. Again, two are engaged, one soon to be and two married. So, once again, I sat through a lunch dominated by wedding conversation. You know, the usual, engagement photos, the cost of gowns and flowers, the bridesmaids dresses etc., etc. It was the whole nine yards – wedding magazines being tossed around, engagement photos being whipped out etc. I found myself sitting awkardly with my single friends, only half-listening with glazed expressions on our faces. Don’t get me wrong, I am really, really happy for them! My soon-to-be married friend is positively glowing in anticipation. It is almost like she has waited for this moment her whole life! I guess my whole purpose here is to talk out my own thought process because I am constantly questioning whether I fit in society’s mould. In this instance, I do not think I do. Whether this has to do with biology or not, I am not quite sure.

I know if I really wanted to, B would love to marry and settle down however, something is really holding me back. But what? Why do I not feel like I am on the same page as everyone else? Where do they find their certainty? That is what I really want to find out. A friend of mine laughed when I confessed my doubts, joking that our early-/mid-twenties are for our friends to get engaged and our late twenties are when we see them all get divorced. True or not, I think of this quite a bit.

I am not sure if MRKH is what is holding me back or maybe causing me to consider things more closely than other people. Maybe I am afraid to face the questions that would come next? You know, the ones about when we would have kids and really start the family. I cannot say for sure but either way, the real question is, will I ever be sure what path is the right one for me? This is the one big fat question mark in my life right now…

For our French-speaking MRKH ladies, this is another website for MRKH. My french is not too strong but browsing it, I found it pretty helpful! There is a section which also provides some literature (in french).  If you are interested, please check out the link:

The Birth of a New Year.

January 3, 2011 at 3:44 pm (Just wondering...)

As I was reflecting on 2010, I realized that it has been about a year since I started this journey. I cannot believe how healing this experience has been (thus far) and how much support there is out there for MRKH women! Thanks so much to you all! I hope you have learnt as much as I have from this experience. I will continue to update my blog as much as I can. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, I would love to hear them! Thank you and love you all!
