Infertility is something which happens to other peopleInfertility is something which happens to other people, isn't it? Actually, it's a surprisingly common problem, affecting at least 15 percent of couples.

Among these couples, 40 percent will have a combination of male and female infertility factors, while in only 20 percent will the man be the only partner responsible for infertility. About 40 to 50 percent of all infertility is due to problems experienced by the woman.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
