Infertility tends to be an issue we don't think about—until it affects us directly. It could be a sister, brother, friend or adult child who admits she or he is having trouble conceiving. It could be a close friend whom you've wondered why she and her husband have not had a child yet.
It could be yourself.
I confess I was one of those who never thought about it, until it became a factor in my life. In the six years since I first began to question whether I might have a fertility problem, I have spent significant time researching, learning, and becoming aware of how infertility affects so many people worldwide today.
And, surprisingly to many, my partner and I have chosen not to seek fertility treatment.
