Women Struggling With Infertility Share Their Hopes And Fears

It’s rude to ask “what is infertility like?” when a couple is struggling to conceive, but it’s something we should all know more about.

Taking to Whisper, the site where people share their anonymous confessions, some brave women have opened up about what it’s like to be told you can’t have children.

From how it makes them feel, to the things they’ve been driven to do or say, the Whisper users have painted a very compelling picture of what it’s like to struggle with infertility.

Some of those were absolutely heartbreaking, weren’t they?

However the women, after opening up, have found a wealth of support from others online.

One commented: “I understand the pain. It almost broke me. I did 4 IVF cycles and ended up with twins. Keep hoping because I stopped believing and somehow a miracle happened.”

“I’m so sorry to hear this,” said another Whisper user. “I know that it probably not the same but adoption is always an option. There are many kids out there who wish to be part of a family.”
