Infertility affects 1 in 6 couples and spans all socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and religious groups. There is a lot of shame and too many misconceptions and myths going around. All are not helpful and sometimes hurtful to those who are struggling with infertility.
In honour of the upcoming infertility awareness week, we would like to break the silence and demonstrate what infertility journey looks like. Pictures speak louder than words so we thought to start a thread of pictures about infertility.
