National Infertility Awareness Week- Myth Busters!


Infertility Basics tomorrow on PathtoFertility.

Today, I’d like to remind you of some things coming up next weekend. This week is NIAW (National Infertility Awareness Week), created by Resolve: The National Infertility Association. niaw logo resized 600

It's Bust a Myth Year for NIAW. Easy topic. There are so many myths that are floating out there.

Here are a few :


  1. You are the only person in your group of friends faced with infertility problems
  2. Because you're young, you're immune to infertility problems
  3. Not getting pregnant in the first year means you will never get pregnant
  4. Adopting will get you pregnant
  5. It's your fault that you're struggling with infertility because of any number of things that you've done in your past, including using birth control, having an abortion or having had a sexually transmitted disease
  6. You can only get pregnant if you have IVF treatment- nothing else works
  7. Getting your period regularly means that you are ovulating and therefore there is no problem
  8. You don't really want to have a baby
  9. If you have one child, the next one will come easily
  10. You have mixed feelings and that's why you're not getting pregnant
  11. God doesn't want you to have a baby
  12. If you relax, you'll get pregnant
  13. Your fertility starts to decline at 40 (try 25 for the first drop, and then 35 for the next one)

And on and on and on.

What's your favorite infertility myth?  Perhaps something you've always wondered about? Is it a myth or fact?
