The fourth-wave feminist movement has been celebrated as a revival of feminism that is driven by the power of the Internet and social media to challenge gender inequity. Through a rhetorical deconstruction of customer online testimonials from three American fertility websites I challenge the liberatory claims attached to fourth-wave expression. What emerges through this investigation is the user-generated complicity of consumers who are encouraged to buy into an infertility cure but who also inadvertently compound gendered perceptions of reproductive health.
