Shhhh... I'm Infertile

Infertility does not have to be a secret. Many couples experience infertility and go through fertility treatments, and yet, it often remains a secret from family and friends.

Why is this? Perhaps people feel ashamed that they can’t conceive right away or feel as if they are the only ones experiencing these issues.

Although it might not feel this way, infertility affects millions of couples, and many turn to fertility treatments to grow their families. You are definitely not alone. You probably know a co-worker, friend or acquaintance who has experienced a miscarriage or endured fertility treatments — you just might not know it. Singer Celine Dion went through IVF, and actress Courtney Cox proudly admitted to having treatment.

If infertility is eating you up inside, talk to someone! Next week is National Infertility Awareness Week, and it's a great time to try jumping out of that infertility closest! Open up, because you have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. You'll find that life is easier when you have more support and a shoulder to lean on.
