Personal Care Makes the Difference
One aspect of care that we take seriously here at Southeastern Fertility is this: You’ll actually see your doctor! That’s important not just for your own confidence and peace of mind, but it’s how our physicians prefer it. Co-Director Dr. John Gordon and IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum explain why.
IUI & Trigger Shots: Better Together?
IUIs and trigger shots: Do they go together? Well, it depends.
Dazed & Confused
Infertility can leave you dazed (as in, clinically depressed), and some scheduling changes for upcoming Southeastern Fertility cycles have some of our patients confused.
They Persevered, and Found a Support System
Charity & Rhett went through a long road of infertility over several years. Along the way, they navigated failed IUIs, surgery, unsuccessful IVF, a very iffy positive pregnancy test, and even an ice storm! But amid their pain and vulnerability, they also discovered an amazing support system in their local church. And yes, eventually, they welcomed the son for whom they had so long prayed.
Right Tool. Right Use. Right Result.
Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon spins a yarn about an ultrasound machine, a pesky house key, and a fix that would make MacGyver proud.
Feeling Distressed? De-stress!
Life is stressful for most of us these days. Add infertility to the mix, and some of our load-bearing capacities are getting pushed to the limit. Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon & IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum have a reminder (and some tips) to de-stress!
Learning God's Hard Life Lessons
Infertility is so hard to bear. Yet, seen through the eyes of faith, it can become redemptive. Jacob & Beth say the lessons they learned through infertility and the premature births of their twins prepared them to deal with other, longer-term trials in life. Through it all, they’ve come to trust God more and learned to serve others well. Be inspired by their journey in this episode of Southeastern Fertility’s “Hope, Faith, & Infertility” podcast.
A Three-Strike Approach
Baseball isn’t the only realm in which you get three strikes. Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon unpacks why he thinks it’s wise to take a “three-strike approach” to fertility treatment.
When Is It Time To Move On?
When is it time to move on? That’s always a hard question, but especially when you’ve been going through a particular course of fertility treatment without the hoped-for results. In this video, Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon and IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum are helping you think this topic through.
We Love Seeing Our Patients!
We love seeing our patients and their babies! So much so that it actually contributed to our missing the weekly social media video post last week. Not too fear- Southeastern Fertility Co-Director Dr. John Gordon and IVF Coordinator Lynda McCollum are back, talking about drop-in visits!
I Feared Multiples Deeply. Then Came the Triplets.
Erin used to dream she had triplets and woke up considering those dreams to be nightmares. She didn’t think there was any way she could parent so many kids at once. It took actually having triplets for her to realize she was wrong.
We Let You Go at Your Own Pace
Starting fertility treatment can be sort of like learning to snow ski. Most people will naturally bring a fear of the unknown to the experience, so it’s important to go at your own pace. Here at Southeastern Fertility, we make sure to walk with you at whichever pace best suits your situation.
We Didn't Go All The Way To IVF
Jennifer and Matt had their first child very easily, then encountered the heartache of secondary infertility. They wondered if the dream of growing their family would ever become reality. In this episode of our Hope, Faith & Infertility podcast, Jennifer explains how that dream came to life. It’s an encouraging journey that didn’t require them to go all the way to IVF.

Blinded by the Light(s)?
When battling infertility, couples can develop a one-track mindset, investing all their hopes in one approach. On the other hand, some can become so frustrated that they just scrap all treatment. Neither of these extremes constitutes the sort of balanced view that often leads to success in conquering infertility.
