I am hoping to start IUI treatment later this year! But I have worries on my mind about how to tell family if it works! I haven't had steady boyfriends as my first sexual experience was a trauma this is why I haven't had men in my life and chosen this route. Not everyone in my family knows about this trauma and am worried there will be loads of questions and judgment when it should be a really happy time in my life! Can any one give me any advice about this keeps me up at night!!


A very concerned woman

Hi there - I hope you are okay? I think it is really great that you are deciding to start on IUI treatment, congratulations. I am sure your family care a great deal about your happiness and if this is something that you want to do I am sure they will see that and understand why you have made this decision. Perhaps you could tell one member of your family that you are starting the treatment to see how they react and also I think it would be good to talk to someone, either a family member or friend , when you start the treatment because it would be good to have someone to talk to along the way. xx
