Infertility is a highly personal subject and one that can be painful to discuss. Infertility can impact self-image and self-worth and can affect all aspects of life. Feelings of isolation are real. Many couples are unable to share their feelings and sense of frustration and loss. For many, it becomes difficult to even confide in families and friends.
