Infertility and the physician journey [PODCAST]

“I am a medical doctor—a hospitalist working in an environment with many talented professionals. We share our knowledge and our approach to medicine with one another in ways that profoundly affect our patients and other personnel in the hospital.

At our best, we are a community whose foundation is a willingness and openness to discuss hard facts and make difficult decisions.

So why is it that when I was first diagnosed with infertility, I felt so alone? I was 1 in 8. Where were the others? There are hundreds of thousands of female doctors; where were the thousands who shared my situation?

I didn’t know anyone else.

Because no one talks about it.”

Kate Hoppock is an internal medicine physician and can be reached at Fertility Found.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Normalizing infertility conversations in the workplace.”
