Is it reasonable to ask people to change their profile?

    by andyUK      .      24 May 2014

    Well I have been on here for a few months and helped 3 people. Some do and some don't want to take the time it takes to work at getting pregnant and out of those 3 people 2 of them gave up after two months of trying. But what I find amazing is that several people on here get "annoyed" when they email you to say "I have found a donor" or "I am pregnant" you reply saying "well just change your profile to say so" and they get angry at you. Surely it is reasonable to ask them to say on the profile if they are working with a donor or pregnant. I have total respect for that but why should I waste my time reading all about them and thinking if we have the same aims etc if they can't even be bothered to say they have found someone? Not an unreasonable request I think...

    I think it's reasonable. I changed mine when I became pregnant.

These are just a few examples of the many and varied possibilities. Whether you are single, in a same-sex relationship or part of a couple experiencing infertility, you too can become parents. Your first step will be to find alternative solutions to enable you to have a baby.
