This is such a hard topic to deal with, particularly because it is emotionally hurtful on top of the physical pain that may accompany it. However, 1 in 8 couples will experience problems with infertility. When a couple is trying for children, and they are unable to conceive, it can be incredibly difficult to discuss with other people. In this case, most couples don’t want to share all the details of what they are going through, but it is healthy for them to be able to share some of their struggles. If someone does choose to share their fertility struggles with you, take this as a sign of immense trust. Don’t pull away. It can be uncomfortable at first, because of the emotional burden that comes along with this, but we need to be more open about this.
