Myth: Why don’t you just forget it and adopt? After all, there are so many babies out there who need homes!

Fact: For many, adoption is a happy resolution to infertility. However, most people explore medical treatment for infertility prior to considering adoption. In addition, traditional adoption options have changed, and adoption can be more costly and time-consuming than expected. It is, however, still possible to adopt the healthy baby of your dreams. There are also many older children and children with special needs available for adoption.

Myth: Maybe you two are doing something wrong!

Fact: Infertility is a medical condition, not a sexual disorder.

Myth: My partner might leave me because of our infertility.

Fact: The majority of couples do survive the infertility crisis, learning in the process new ways of relating to each other, which deepens their relationship in years to follow.

Myth: Perhaps this is God’s way of telling you that you two aren’t meant to be parents!

Fact: It is particularly difficult to hear this when you are struggling with infertility. You know what loving parents you would be, and it is painful to have to explain to others that you have a medical problem.

Myth: Infertility is nature’s way of controlling population.

Fact: Zero population growth is a goal pursued in a time of world overpopulation, but it still allows for couples to replace themselves with two children. Individuals or couples can certainly elect the option to be childfree or to raise a single child. Infertility, for those who desire children, denies them the opportunity to choose.

    Great post! Thanks for posting this! It’s always good to bust the FAM myths. You said that Infertility is a medical condition, not a sexual disorder. I would like to add that fertility refers to a person’s ability to procreate. Sexuality is completely independent of that ability. I was diagnosed infertility many years ago. I have heard many stories when they refused to give the baby. So when I finally decided to use surrogacy I performed a big research. I looked through the internet for some months. I wanted not only to find a reliable clinic. One of the main things for me was the price. Finally I decided on Ukraine. I have never expected that medicine there is so good. Clinic’s driver met us at the airport with the interpreter. We had no problems with communication as she was with us almost all the time. What about surrogacy laws… When our baby was born, clinic helped us to prepare all the necessary documents. We did everything rather quickly. With surrogate mother we had no problems, she is a wonderful person. As soon as possible we left the country.

    I couldn’t be a mom in my 20s. I was an actor and living in L.A. and I had zero financial security. I also didn’t have the focus for motherhood. I met my husband, Rick and we both decided to focus on our carriers. But after celebration my 44 birthday party I felt like there was a hole in my seemed ideal life. I knew that become mom I my age is not going to be an easy. My fertility doctor said that my only chance to have kids is to use assistant reproductive medicine. After senseless rounds of IVF in Canada I we decided to take risk in Ukraine. For all- inclusive package we paid only €30000. Isn’t surprisingly price for economically poor country. However, we received great service and finally a positive result. When I first told my family and friends that I was pregnant with the twins, they were shocked. Everyone assumed that I was too old to have more kids, and we hadn’t told anyone we were trying. Once, I summoned the energy to go to a friend’s Christmas party. I was happy to be out of the house, until a woman I didn’t know very well joked “Oh my god, at your age? You’re going to be exhausted.” As if that wasn’t obvious to me. My friend come from nowhere and tells that lady to mind her own business. Unfortunately such crap asses are everywhere and all u can do is just ignoring them.

    Having a child is usually a happy time in a woman’s life. Unfortunately, as we wait longer to have children, infertility and trouble conceiving can become a part of the family making process. Unbearable addresses these difficulties. This week, I found out that I will never get pregnant. After two and a half years of trying and hoping, my struggle is over. Through all of the ups and downs of infertility, I always had hope. I truly believed that someday I would get pregnant. Losing that hope is almost as hard as losing a pregnancy. Luckily I married an angel. My hubby supported me even more than I deserve. He never stops looking for solution. I have never let me feel guilty. I think that is what true love is. He encouraged me to give a shot in Ukrainian clinic Biotexcom as they have the most high rating and affordable prices. Well we did it and I feel it was the best decision I’ve ever take. Every moment with a small child is a spark of joy. Every once in a while, I look at kids and I feel a hollowness. But I resist it. I don’t want to be pulled back into darkness. I want celebration. I want laughter.
