When It's Hard to Get Pregnant

Month after month you pee on a stick, hold your breath, and then … nothing.

While others around you celebrate growing baby bumps and adorable pregnancy announcements, you’re stuck in a cycle of disappointment.

It’s frustrating hearing everyone’s well-meaning advice and stories; you think you’ll explode if you hear “just relax,” “my aunt’s neighbor swears by this fertility supplement,” or “I know someone who stopped trying and it just happened” one more time.

Maybe you’ve tried rounds of IUI or IVF with only sore injection sites, knots and bruises, and a new vocabulary of acronyms to show for it (so tired of TTC, 2WW, POAS, and BFN!). Or perhaps you are contemplating the use of donor eggs or sperm, surrogacy, or adoption.

After working so hard to do everything right, it feels unfair and makes no sense that your body can’t do this one thing.

Even sex has become a chore with scheduling timed intercourse (or avoiding it altogether) around procedures. It’s too hard to talk to friends or family about this—you just feel so broken and alone.
