This blog has existed for 4 years now & for the past 3 years I have marked National Infertility Awareness Week. This year's theme is "Don't Ignore Infertility". For those of us who are in the midst of the battle, infertility is impossible to ignore. Pregnant women are everywhere. Children are everywhere. Those tacky stick figure families on the back windows of SUVs are everywhere.
If you are reading this blog, it is likely you yourself are infertile or love someone who is. If you're not "out" as an infertile in real life, I would implore you to take this opportunity to come out of the proverbial closet via social media or some other outlet. In order for infertility to not be ignored, we as a community need to talk about our experiences to educate others. Don't be afraid; don't be ashamed: be heard!
