Guest Episode: Monique Farook from Infertility and Me Podcast

Join Dr. Tara Brandner and Monique Farook from Infertility and Me Podcast as she shares her three hopeful hints and how infertility impacts your relationship as a couple. You don't want to miss this dynamite episode! Monique is an entrepreneur, wife, and mom. She was diagnosed with infertility in 2012, at the age of 29 years old, and married for two years. The HSG test at the time showed a blocked tube. Monique and her husband attempted one IUI cycle, which was unsuccessful. They decided they were not ready to have further testing or proceed with IVF treatment. Four years went by before Monique sought the help of a reproductive endocrinologist again. In the spring of 2016, she found a new REI and further testing discovered there was no blocked tube anymore. Ultrasounds showed uterine polyps and blood tests revealed low thyroid levels. Monique became pregnant after her second egg retrieval late summer of 2016.
