    Hello,

    I have been an REI nurse for 3 1/2 years. I know there are many REI nurses out there but I haven't figured out how to contact them. We have no certification exam available to us and no support/forum at this site. I really need some support right now. Anyone out there care to listen?

    Question for a fertility nurse:

    I know a number of people who struggled with infertility for years, and then had a child. After that, child #2, 3, or even 4+ seemed to come easily, closely spaced without any special intervention. What is the biological explanation for this? Does the experience of childbirth somehow prime the reproductive tract to make acheiving a pregnancy easier the second time around?

    Hello,

    There is no biological explanation for this other than saying that what ever caused the problem resolved itself. We see many patients that go through all of the usual tests and come out with no real explanation for the infertility. They fall into the category of "unexplained infertility" which could mean there are problems at the actual level of fertilization and implantation that cannot be diagnosed. These patients may go on with treatment and get pregnant or stop treatment and later get pregnant on their own. I believe that God is in the ultimate control and when He says the time is right it happens.

    Thanks!

    A friend of mine had her first baby last year after 10 years of trying. I saw her again today and she looked like she was expecting. I was kind of surprised to see her pregnant again so soon knowing how hard it was for her the first time.

    I am going into nursing.... start school in 3 months.. I have been researching to try to find what kind of nursing I am interested in. REI has been one of my top choices, but I am having trouble finding any information on this specialty.. even having trouble finding threads on it here! If anybody out there is involved in this field or knows a lot about it, please respond! Thank you!
