"Riding the Infertility Roller Coaster is written by an individual who has lived through
the issues of infertility for both men and women trying to cope with their own

about in her book is you MUST click with your doctor. If it doesn't feel right, move
on, find another. It never occurred to me before reading this book, that I would not
continue to see my RE throughout a pregnancy. Thanks to Waichler for pointing
