10 common fertility mythsOnce a couple makes the life-changing decision to start a family, they can become extremely frustrated if they do not conceive on the first try. There are many legitimate reasons as to why the couple may not be conceiving, but there is also a great deal of misinformation on the subject of fertility.

1. A woman's menstrual cycle is 28 days.

2. A woman can get pregnant on only one day of her cycle.

3. Stress causes infertility.

4. Sperm live for only several hours

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.
