NIAW 2012 - Don't Ignore Infertility

An estimated 1 in 8 couples are struggling with infertility on their journey to parenthood.

Its a bumpy road with too many ups and downs, twists and turns, littered with medicine bottles, pee sticks, and tear soaked tissues. And every mile marker is a piece of a broken heart.

With 12.5% of couples on this road, chances are good that you know more than one person struggling. If you can't think of anyone going through it, that means they are hurting in silence. I challenge those of you who are blessed to be fertile, to reach out, show your support to those of us fighting this disease.

And if you are struggling with infertility, please know that you aren't alone. Share your story. The more we share, the less people can ignore this heartbreaking disease.

  1. Yes, it’s important to share this kind of battle. It will help the person personally and those who will be able to receive it. For one, it is easier and far more empowering to fight when you know you’re not alone and that there are people watching your back. Another thing is awareness. Though this condition is hard to avoid, people will be coaxed to do their own research and take necessary exams.

You read it, you might as well comment right! And honestly, I love comments. They get sent directly to my email, which I of course get on my phone because I am addicted to your comments.
