Infertility can be a very hard and seemingly never-ending road. One of the first steps is to look for information. When you do, you will realize that the internet is full of blogs about infertility and fertility treatments and options, from medical websites with scientific explanations and news to personal blogs with infertility stories. It can be challenging to browse through them and find the best of the best. For this reason, we’ve done the work for you and organized our second annual “Top Ten Infertility Blogs” contest for 2020.
As you know, we asked our community to share their favorite infertility blogs with us. As usual, your responses were immediate and overwhelming. The nominees were pre-selected based on content quality, how often the blog is updated, and social network activity. Finally, the top blogs were ranked by more than 5,000 votes in our contest, “Top Ten Infertility Blogs of 2020.”
We want to thank all of you for your participation, from initial nominations to voting.
Before announcing the top ten infertility blogs of 2020, remember that education is key! The more you know, the better prepared you will be for what lies ahead.
