Hi All, single female with endometriosis here. The last few months have been really trying for me, for many obvious reasons and some personal. But wanted to share that this morning my doctors office received the authorization approval from AETNA to use the egg freezing benefit. I cried all morning as this isn’t something I’d normally be able to afford on my own. Never give up hope even during the most difficult moments. ❤️

This is the news I was looking for, I'm looking to freeze my eggs this year due to endometriosis IV and aging. I didn't realize our insurance paid for it, is there a certain plan you have? Did you go straight to fertility specialist or through obgyn?

OP just here to say thanks, I've been approved and went through the process because of your post, so thanks for providing your story! I know next steps are figuring out cost as it relates to medication, but at least step one has been successful.

Thank you ❤️

What's the coverage? Only if you have endometriosis? How long will they freeze for? Just a heads up to be prepared to go through a headache when it comes to ordering/covering the meds for the retrieval... going through something similar with our plan and would be happy to compare notes.

I went elsewhere. Apthorp had decent pricing for what I was looking for. Also feel free to PM me to connect, I have a feeling we're going to be going through similar experiences dealing with insurance.

I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant. We will have health insurance with my new employer but my wife found some article suggesting we may not get pregnancy coverage under new insurance because they will recognize it as a preexisting condition.

The pressure at work has increasingly led to a strain on my mental health. I have allowed myself one too many times to prioritize the needs of others (clients, PPMDs, etc.) before my own and the price is showing in my inability to highly perform like once before. I’m at the point of not caring about anything any longer, even if that means risking my job. I’m not sure the reason I’m posting this—perhaps I’m seeking guidance or maybe I just needed to vent. Sigh…

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
