IMPORTANT  DISCLAIMER: This episode is a general chat about fertility anxiety.  The discussion does not relate to clinically diagnosable anxiety. Please see your GP and or psychologist for support if you have concerns about your mental health. If at any time you are concerned about your personal safety or the safety of another person please contact your local hospital emergency department, contact emergency services on 000, or contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 for further assistance.

Today we discuss the anxiety that exists around your ability to conceive. Whether you are actively trying or you have concerns about your fertility in the future, this is something we see in our clinic at The Dietologist very often.  Some women (and sometimes men) experience pressure from the media, our often well-meaning family and friends and of course from ourselves! Today I share the facts about fertility anxiety and my own story of endometriosis,  freezing my eggs and my own fertility anxiety.
