I started reading the Infertility Survival Guide over the weekend, so far I have mixed feelings about it. One thing that has really stuck with me though is the repeated sentiment of frustration to people telling you to "just relax." This has been something that has often been repeated to me by loving and concerned family members. I try to explain that I do try to relax. There is only so much relaxation I can achieve though, and things that are holding me back are often not related to infertility. School and work are just as much to blame for non-zen feelings as infertility. I liked that this book pointed out that there is no medical backing to the "just relax" sentiment.

On a different note, has anyone ever tried alternative medicines in their infertility journey? Like acupuncture or yoga?
