It’s National Infertility Awareness Week and the theme this year is “You Are Not Alone.” Infertility can make you feel isolated and like you’re the only person struggling to conceive. But the fact is that 1 out of every 8 couples of reproductive age deal with infertility in some form. That means it’s very likely that there are people on your block, in your family, in your office, and in your place of worship who are also experiencing infertility.
Talking about infertility can be scary and leave you feeling vulnerable. But only by talking about it can we make it less taboo and remove the shame that often surrounds it.
