New “Just for Guys” Support Group at ECF!

You asked for it and we listened. (Shout out to Peter!)

And we’ll keep on listening! (That’s the whole point, isn’t it?)

East Coast Fertility is proud to announce the formation of a brand new support group, exclusively for the guys. No wives allowed! I think it’s a first on Long Island! (That’s so like us!)

Under the gentle guidance of ECF’s own Bina Benisch, M.S.,R.N …well-known for her awesome work with our female patients… the men will now get to openly explore their own feelings about being part of an infertile couple. C’mon guys, haven’t you always been jealous that the ladies had a place to go talk about everything that’s driving them crazy…including you? Well, now you can do the same.

Venting is healthy, especially when moderated by a professional. It’s time to let out those feelings. Stress isn’t good for the boys. You don’t talk about this stuff with the guys at the office or the gym, right? Even your brothers don’t get it. And you keep it from your partner because you don’t want to further burden her or seem weak, right? So noble…but so wrong. Your feelings count, too!

This is your chance to become part of something that can only help you get through this infertility journey. It doesn’t matter if the diagnosis is male factor or something else. All guys are welcome.

You’ll help yourself understand your feelings. You will bond with other men who are living with the same pain. You may even make some new friends. Can’t you see it now? A bunch of like-minded guys one-upping each other with stories of their wives’ hormonal outbursts. No one’s gonna judge you here.

The meetings will be held twice a month, every other Tuesday night, from 6:30 pm until 7:30 pm at the Plainview office. Please contact Bina Benisch at binabenisch@gmail.com to register and for more information. There is no fee and no commitment.

Can I get a “Woo-Hoo” from either the interested guys…or the wives who will be forcing them to go? Come on now. Let’s not have Peter stuck talking to himself…
