Remember the Goal is to Create a Family

Patient Q&A with Katherine

Why do you want to share your story?
We had a great experience. Our treatment started conservative and moved forward from there. It was comfortable.


What led you to Fertility Centers of Illinois and why did you trust us?
Recommendation from OB/GYN

What was the infertility diagnosis?
Unexplained infertility

Which Fertility Centers of Illinois physician(s) treated you?
Dr. Juan P. Alvarez and Dr. Jennifer E. Hirshfeld-Cytron

How would you describe your experience with your physician(s)?
Excellent

What infertility treatment(s) did you undergo?
IUI, IVF

What helped you through treatment physically and/or emotionally?
Remembering the goal is to create a family....not how I create a family.

Do you have any words of wisdom for others?
Don't compare yourself to other parents. It doesn't matter how other families were created. It's easy to get discouraged. Never lose sight of your goals. Be open to options you never knew about. If you choose to tell people about your fertility journey, don't get angry with what they say - they don't mean to upset you. They just don't know how to respond.

Tell us about your little miracle!
Zachary is going to turn 2 soon. He has pale blond curls and bright blue eyes. Truly a bright ray of sunshine. Zach's favorite song is "If you're happy and you know it." He is so good natured and happy, always smiling. I tell people Dr. Alvarez made him this way. Haha!
