“When Unexplained Infertility is the Lucky Hand You’ve Been Dealt” is the title of the new video I uploaded yesterday. And now I find myself walking around the house singing the sultry Billie Holiday song, “Hush now don’t explain, just say you’ll remain”…Such a sexy tune!
No, Billie is not talking about unexplained infertility; she’s talking to her lover. Nonetheless, she has something to teach us about infertility and fertility.
The unexplained infertility/lucky hand video is really as much about unexplained fertility, as it is about sharing some of my views on this confusing term and diagnosis, so exploited, and mishandled by the mainstream one-size-fits-all trajectory of IUI’s, Clomid, Femara, injectables, and IVF fertility treatment methods.
It’s disheartening to meet so many women who are cajoled into fixing what’s not broken and end up breaking what in some cases can be a lot harder to fix. No, a lot harder doesn’t mean impossible, especially if you hit the Fertile Heart trail. But wouldn’t it be nice if when it came to our exquisitely designed Holy Human Loaves we paid more heed to that old maxim of not fixing what’s not broken?
Our desire to understand why this heart-wrenching life challenge, this alleged unexplained infertility shows up in our lives, is a healthy impulse to follow. To keep exploring the reason for our difficulties; to patiently attempt to unravel the mystery of the unexplained diagnosis is a worthy task to take on.
The Fertile Heart™ Ovum Practice
It’s what the Fertile Heart™ Ovum practice is all about. Every imagery exercise and Body Truth sequence was conceived as a divining rod, a homeopathic remedy meant to elicit a physical, emotional, and soul-shift within us that would bring the baby an inch closer.
But to think that explaining it means controlling the outcome of this mysterious event called the creation of life, is not only arrogant, it reduces this challenge into a mechanical, fully explainable phenomena.
I meant it when I said in The Fertile Female that we can decode many of the mysteries of our infertility diagnosis and we would be foolish not to try. But I love Billie Holiday reminding me that lovers return, and babies can arrive long before we understand what it is that made conception impossible yesterday and lo and behold yes, oh, yes, possible today.
As always, I’d love to hear your feedback or comments on the Unexplained Infertility, Lucky Hand video (click to watch). And if you have experienced unexplainable mysteries small or large on the baby road, would you share a story or two?
