In today's blog, we're discussing the correlation between being childfree and lonliness...

Does Being Childfree Mean You're Lonely?

Some posts have gone viral recently that try to convince society that this is true. However, can someone who's childfree by choice TRULY experience lonliness if that's the life they chose for themselves? 

If we're being really honest here, almost everyone experiences lonliness in some form. 

These feelings are common. But, you should feel so confident in your childfree choice that you won't allow lonliness to overtake your emotions. 

To better illustrate this point, there is a story in the 90-Day Journal for Childfree Women that discusses how to navigate temporary feelings of lonliness and empowers you to fully embrace your childfree choice. 

Check out the journal here

In conclusion, YOU know yourself better than others do.

When society tries to convince you that you're lonely as a childfree person, don't believe them. They're projecting their own lives onto you. 

With Love,

3 Ways To Embrace Being Childfree By Choice

3 Ways To Embrace Being Childfree By Choice

Although the childfree lifestyle has become more mainstream, there are some who have yet to speak up and embrace being childfree by choice.  

In this blog, we'll share 3 ways to embrace the childfree lifestyle for yourself and those around you. 

Have you ever silenced your opinion about not wanting to have children due to fear of backlash?

Or, do you feel that not wanting to have children makes you a bad person? 

Here are 3 ways to embrace being childfree by choice:

  1. If you're afraid of other people's opinions, understand that it's not your job to convince them to accept your childfree lifestyle. Remain true to what feels right for you, and do it UNAPOLOGETICALLY! The Clapback Cards: Childfree Edition can help with this. 
  2. Realize that being childfree doesn't equate to being a bad person. It's just your personal choice (which we ALL have), and that's OK! The 90-Day Journal for Childfree Women talks about this. Order your copy here
  3. If you're still unsure about whether or not you should become (or remain) childfree, observe how you react when children are around you. Do you find it enjoyable or bothersome? If it's the latter choice, then maybe you should consider remaining childfree.

In conclusion, these are the ways to embrace being childfree by choice. Don't be ashamed to speak up about not wanting to have children. It's YOUR body, YOUR choice - and it doesn't make you a bad person.

Respectfully, Mind Your Own Uterus

Respectfully, Mind Your Own Uterus

  • 13 May 2022
  • Jerra Mitchell

At Unfertilized Eggs, we empathize with women all over the world who are enraged at the SCOTUS Draft leak, which will, if passed, severely restrict a woman’s right to choose to terminate a pregnancy. 

We are PRO-CHOICE and we believe you do not need a reason to be that way. YOUR uterus, YOUR business. We believe in fully expressing yourself, whether it’s through journaling, connecting with like-minded people, or attending a reproductive rights rally. 

We’re more than just our reproductive organs.

Women are individuals who are capable of making their own choices in life.  We believe all women deserve access to abortions, as there are SEVERAL reasons why they take place anyway…but, that’s another story. 

 Our message to politicians and anyone else who feels women must be maternal, is: 

RESPECTFULLY, MIND YOUR OWN UTERUS. Order the T-shirt here!

Motherhood is not a requirement for adulthood. It is not a surefire segue to happiness. Motherhood does not save relationships. Motherhood is a CHOICE. Plain and simple. It shouldn’t be forced upon us.

At Unfertilized Eggs, we encourage you to express yourself, as loudly or as quietly as you like. We need Roe to stay. 

If you’re joining a rally, this would be the perfect shirt for you. Purchase yours here

Please take selfies and tag us in your photos, using the hashtag #unfertilizedeggs!

3 Signs You Might Have Fibriods

3 Signs You Might Have Fibriods

  • 10 Apr 2022
  • Jerra Mitchell

If you've ever felt dismissed or misdiagnosed by a doctor, pertaining to fibroids, continue reading. YOU know your body and when something doesn't feel right. Also, contrary to popular belief: Your periods ARE NOT supposed to be painful! This brings us to the first sign to look out for...

1. If you've experienced painful cramping in the lower abdomen, back, or upper thigh area, you should get screened for fibroids. A bit of discomfort here and there is normal, BUT if you're glued to the bed for hours at a time because of excruciating pain, that's definitely a sign that shouldn't be ignored. 

2. If you've ever experienced heavy bleeding for several days during your cycle (or in-between your cycle), you should've gotten checked for fibriods like yesterday. Heavy bleeding is one of the most common signs of fibroids, which can also lead to extreme fatigue from the loss of blood. Again, you shouldn't bleed heavily for several days at a time while on your period.

3. Do you experience having to urinate a lot (regardless of how much water you drink)? If so, this is another sign you might have fibroids. Some fibroids are positioned directly on the bladder, and depending on how large that fibroid is, it results in having to take more frequent trips to the bathroom. 

Certainly, there are other signs to look out for. These are the most common ones, however. It's not good to accept a statement from your doctor saying, "All periods are supposed to be painful." It's NOT normal.

Mothers Have Their Own Platform, Why Can't We?

Mothers Have Their Own Platform, Why Can't We?

  • 31 Mar 2022

Don't get it twisted...this is NOT an attack on the ever-so-popular "mompreneur" and other mommy platforms on social media. But, in a world that preaches inclusivity, why do most people frown upon those who choose NOT to have children? If mothers can post about their day-to-day activities, so can we!

We have the right to showcase our lifestyle without it being misconstrued as bragging, irresponsible, or annoying. (Although some childfree platforms explicitly brag about being childfree, that's not what Unfertilized Eggs is about.)

We should'nt have to remain silent or hide how happy we are that we chose a life that best fits us, instead of falling victim to societal "norms." You have the right to be the rich auntie, fly stepmom, loving dog mom, or caring plant mom. (Did we miss anything??)

Childfree women are some of the bravest and free-spirited people around - and that should be celebrated. 

With that said, on this last day of Women's History Month, we encourage you to continue to boldly and unapologetially own your childfree status, and never worry about what other people have to say about you. Your uterus, your business.

By now, I'm pretty sure you've seen the interview where Mary J. Blige explained that she didn't want children because she enjoys her freedom. Rightfully so, several people applauded her for that statement. Childfree women DO have the freedom and flexibility to get up and go without having to scramble around for a babysitter, as Mary J. also mentioned...
