Anyone in consulting and going through fertility treatments or even a holistic fertility treatment? If so how so you handle travel? Has your manager been understanding?

I told my partner I had a medical procedure that would be three weeks and I couldn't travel, but that I could work remotely. He asked no questions.

You are not obligated to share details. Don't let guilt force you into sharing anymore that you feel comfortable. It's no one's business but yours.

If they push simply say "I'm not comfortable sharing the details.".

It sucked, but doable. Bring all the needles and meds on the road and make public bathrooms your jam.

My boss knows, did it already three times (all failed) will try soon a fourth time. No problems at all. I was pretty open at office about it. And.. To my surprise a ton more people did it then you would have thought! They just don't talk about it lol

Am considering but would never disclose to anyone. It’s medically related and no one needs to know aside me and my doctor.

No need to tell anyone why, but I think it helps (everyone) to talk about it. A lot more people did it (or tried it) than you might think!

Gripe here for my fellow consultants in our 40s. It’s that time of year when I grow tired of every newly minted manager with an ego. I get it. You bring a lot of value. But this attitude of “I’ve conquered the world” is exhausting. You’ve worked for like 6 years. Let’s just say I prefer my consultants aged a bit like wine instead of just-off-the-tap like beer. There is value from experience, that, while not everything, adds a lot that this generation ignores.
