What most women dont know about fertility Have you ever found yourself talking to a friend about your fertility struggle, when a blank, horrified look begins to crawl across her face? She's probably blissfully ignorant about all a person can go through to conceive.

Except for those of us who've been forced to learn firsthand about things like stimming, egg retrieval, male factor infertility, and reproductive endocrinology, these terms may as well be Greek to most people.

For a "fertile", the concept of getting pregnant is usually something to the effect of get frisky; sperm meets egg; buy home pregnancy test; have baby.

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.
