Even though infertility affects at least 10% of the population, most couples feel as though they are the only ones struggling through it. Help give some reassurance to those encountering fertility problems by talking about your experience. Did you turn to in vitro fertilization or some other form of infertility treatment? Were alternative or natural fertility treatments useful for you? We want to hear your encouraging anecdotes about infertility and fertility treatments.
Too Young, Too Stupid
I don't really think this counts as an infertility story, but I don't think it counts as a postpartum story either. The closest I can come to my issue is infertility-- that is, I want a baby but can't have one.
Why not? I'm barely 16. I'm halfway through high school. I'm not extraordinary in any way. I'm afraid of boys and I don't trust them with my body. I've never even had a boyfriend. But I want a baby. I want to be a mommy.
I can't though, because to be a vet like I've always dreamed, I have to go to college. And be "smart." Becoming a single mom at age 16 is anything but smart. My parents don't know; I'd feel like an idiot telling them, and they'd tell me that I am not ready. I'm probably not. But at times, my heart shoots down my brain's logic. I settle for taking care of other people's dogs and kids. But it's not the same, I want my own baby.
It's frustrating. I love to babysit, and the kids like that I make up new games for them and play with them instead of just setting them loose. But I can't babysit 24/7. Something about the whole situation makes me feel like I'm being selfish and that it isn't right for me to feel this way, but I can't help what I feel... It helps to write it, to share it, though. I will be praying for all of you who also hope for a baby, and for those who need help caring for them. Thanks for listening.

My 4yr old wants a brother or sisterHello ladies,
I am so nervous and don't know where to start off. My husband (38yrs) and I (27yrs.) have been married for 5 yrs. We have a beautiful 4 yr old son. When my son was 1 1/2 we found out that my husband had testicular cancer. He went through chemotherapy for 2 yrs and then got a very complicated surgery, called RPLND, that lasted 12 hours. It has been 2 yrs that he has been in remission. We are so happy and still praying to GOD that he will remain in remission forever.
So now my son is 4yr old and is asking for a brother or sister. When ever we go to the grocery store and he sees a baby he asks me where can we buy one. So it is very stressfull because my husband has a dry ejaculation and for that reason it is very had for my to get pregnant naturally.
So now, we went to see a infertility doctor where he will be getting testicular mapping and possibly getting pregnant through in-vitro. My insurance pays 50% and up to 3 cycles. Can someone give me more details on how this process works. I am so clueless and nervous. I really want to surprise my son when I get pregnant. I wish you all the best. Always stay positive, that helped me alot when my husband was going through his worst days of his life and never loose hope. GOD is always there and will always be there for you.
When I finally let go...It only took me a year to conceive, but it felt like it was taking forever, since it was such a pre-occupation in my mind. Not only was I stressed about conception, but a lot of issues came right up in my face about my own upbringing. Once I resolved some of these issues and let go of my sense of urgency, I conceived straightaway. It inspired me to interview 15 couples who conceived after experiencing an emotional shift. My research confirmed that a wholistic approach to conception is so beneficial. The product of my research is a book called "Trying to Conceive - True Stories from Couples who overcame Infertility" (Finch Publishing 2008).
