A study published in Human Reproduction that links long-term stress to infertility is making news. And for infertility patients it can be maddening. Stress causes infertility, infertility causes stress... It seems like it’s a viscous cycle.

Congratulations to Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, who today announced that they are expecting a baby girl.

Unfortunately, like many couples, their journey to pregnancy was long and filled with loss. In their pregnancy announcement – on Facebook, naturally – Zuckerberg said, in part, “We've been trying to have a child for a couple of years and have had three miscarriages along the way. You feel so hopeful when you learn you're going to have a child. You start imagining who they'll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they're gone. It's a lonely experience. Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you -- as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.”

Dr. Tinina Cade has the distinction of being the oldest women to deliver triplets at the time her grandchildren were born. Dr. Cade was 55, and she was the surrogate for her daughter and son-in-law, Drs. Camille and Jason Hammond who struggled with infertility for five years. It seems that help in building their family has inspired the Hammonds to “pay it forward.”

It’s refreshing that Joe Francis of “Girls Gone Wild” fame, and his girlfriend, model Abbey Wilson, are talking openly about their elective use of fertility treatment to get pregnant. They didn’t need to do in vitro fertilization (IVF) with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), but they chose to so that they would have genetically healthy twin girls. Many people - celebrity or not - aren’t open about fertility treatment, even when it’s the only route to pregnancy.
