ALT.INFERTILITY.PRIMARY FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
version 1.4
by founders Rick and Becky Steele


second revision May 13, 1999
third revision Sept 20, 1999
4th rev. Oct 20, 1999
revised Dec. 6, 2001

The definition we will use for primary infertility as pertaining to this
alt.infertility.primary newsgroup is as follows:

Anyone who has tried for one year (6 months if 35 or older) to
get pregnant or has a doctor diagnosed fertility problem such as
endometriosis or PCOS who has not managed to carry to term a child. Or
simpler, one who has no biological children of their own, and is diagnosed
as infertile.

What if you become pregnant? We all understand that achieving
pregnancy does not mean that person has overcome infertility.
Unfortunately many who become pregnant will also miscarry. We do not intend
that you are not welcome on this group if you become pregnant, but for the
sake of the others on this group, who most likely won't get pregnant at the
same time you do, we request that you do not discuss your pregnancy on this
group. We prefer one public pregnancy announcement, with all congratulatory
notes sent through private e-mail.

We would also prefer it if you only post pregnancy announcements if you have
been an active participant of the group before the announcement. If you are
not part of the support system, the announcement is not a light of hope for
those of us who are at the end of the road. We want to be your friend in
times of trouble, so we can be your friend in times of happiness.

Alt.infertility.pregnancy is available for those who become pregnant and
wish to discuss their pregnancy with others.
Alt.infertility.primary is not the place for such discussions, and if
repeated will be reacted to negatively.

Who is not a primary infertile? Anyone who has a biological child, no matter
how long it took for them to get pregnant, or what the fertility problem is.

Who is welcome on this group? Anyone who meets the definition of a primary
infertile as defined in this FAQ.

What is welcome on this group? Any post written by a primary infertile
discussing any range of emotions, or opinions.

Warnings!!!! As with alt.infertility, it is customary to put PG
warnings in subject lines if discussing pregnancy, or to warn that children
are mentioned (we will be polite once if you forget, but not so nice after
the second time). Since many of us on alt.infertility.primary have been
trying for a decade or longer, we also prefer nobody tell us that "it will
happen for us someday" (or some other derivative of this sentiment), we
have become testy in our barrenness and we may bite.

If you have elected to have abortions in the past. Please do not bring up
the subject. Many of us have very strong feelings on that subject.

What is not welcome on this group?

1. Cross posting between other newsgroups. (For some reason this
seems to be a difficult concept for some people to grasp. We do not want the
cross postings, because quite often what is appropriate for one group, may
not be appropriate for this group.)

2. Posting by anyone who is not a primary infertile as defined by this FAQ,
unless it is an announcement of a new medical technique or an announcement
that will benefit those on the group. Although we prefer that all medical
questions and answers remain on news:alt.infertility.

3. Postings written by anyone other than a primary infertile as
defined at the beginning of this FAQ putting down another's opinions or
feelings. (note we should all try to be as polite as possible, but there are
times when a person may inadvertently hurt someone else's feelings, and the
injured party should feel comfortable letting that be known).

4. Posts for sales or donations of meds (i.e., Follistim, Gonal-F, HCG, etc.)
are not allowed or wanted on alt.infertility.primary. If you have meds for sale
or donation, post your information on the two main infertility newsgroups:
alt.infertility or misc.health.infertility. These posts are inappropriate for
the primary newsgroup as we deal strictly with emotional issues pertaining to
primary infertility.

As with all parts of life, religion is very important to many of us. In order
to protect the sensitivity of all, please put religion mentioned in your
header.

This is still currently a work in progress, so any advice is welcome.

the primary newsgroup as we deal strictly with emotional issues pertaining to
primary infertility.

As with all parts of life, religion is very important to many of us. In order
to protect the sensitivity of all, please put religion mentioned in your
header.

This is still currently a work in progress, so any advice is welcome.

ALT.INFERTILITY.PRIMARY FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
version 1.4
by founders Rick and Becky Steele


second revision May 13, 1999
third revision Sept 20, 1999
4th rev. Oct 20, 1999
revised Dec. 6, 2001

The definition we will use for primary infertility as pertaining to this
alt.infertility.primary newsgroup is as follows:

Anyone who has tried for one year (6 months if 35 or older) to
get pregnant or has a doctor diagnosed fertility problem such as
endometriosis or PCOS who has not managed to carry to term a child. Or
simpler, one who has no biological children of their own, and is diagnosed
as infertile.

What if you become pregnant? We all understand that achieving
pregnancy does not mean that person has overcome infertility.
Unfortunately many who become pregnant will also miscarry. We do not intend
that you are not welcome on this group if you become pregnant, but for the
sake of the others on this group, who most likely won't get pregnant at the
same time you do, we request that you do not discuss your pregnancy on this
group. We prefer one public pregnancy announcement, with all congratulatory
notes sent through private e-mail.

We would also prefer it if you only post pregnancy announcements if you have
been an active participant of the group before the announcement. If you are
not part of the support system, the announcement is not a light of hope for
those of us who are at the end of the road. We want to be your friend in
times of trouble, so we can be your friend in times of happiness.

Alt.infertility.pregnancy is available for those who become pregnant and
wish to discuss their pregnancy with others.
Alt.infertility.primary is not the place for such discussions, and if
repeated will be reacted to negatively.

Who is not a primary infertile? Anyone who has a biological child, no matter
how long it took for them to get pregnant, or what the fertility problem is.

Who is welcome on this group? Anyone who meets the definition of a primary
infertile as defined in this FAQ.

What is welcome on this group? Any post written by a primary infertile
discussing any range of emotions, or opinions.

Warnings!!!! As with alt.infertility, it is customary to put PG
warnings in subject lines if discussing pregnancy, or to warn that children
are mentioned (we will be polite once if you forget, but not so nice after
the second time). Since many of us on alt.infertility.primary have been
trying for a decade or longer, we also prefer nobody tell us that "it will
happen for us someday" (or some other derivative of this sentiment), we
have become testy in our barrenness and we may bite.

If you have elected to have abortions in the past. Please do not bring up
the subject. Many of us have very strong feelings on that subject.

What is not welcome on this group?

1. Cross posting between other newsgroups. (For some reason this
seems to be a difficult concept for some people to grasp. We do not want the
cross postings, because quite often what is appropriate for one group, may
not be appropriate for this group.)

2. Posting by anyone who is not a primary infertile as defined by this FAQ,
unless it is an announcement of a new medical technique or an announcement
that will benefit those on the group. Although we prefer that all medical
questions and answers remain on news:alt.infertility.

3. Postings written by anyone other than a primary infertile as
defined at the beginning of this FAQ putting down another's opinions or
feelings. (note we should all try to be as polite as possible, but there are
times when a person may inadvertently hurt someone else's feelings, and the
injured party should feel comfortable letting that be known).

4. Posts for sales or donations of meds (i.e., Follistim, Gonal-F, HCG, etc.)
are not allowed or wanted on alt.infertility.primary. If you have meds for sale
or donation, post your information on the two main infertility newsgroups:
alt.infertility or misc.health.infertility. These posts are inappropriate for
the primary newsgroup as we deal strictly with emotional issues pertaining to
primary infertility.

As with all parts of life, religion is very important to many of us. In order
to protect the sensitivity of all, please put religion mentioned in your
header.
