I am 33. I did not know about my infertility until a few months ago, before that, I diligently took my birth control pill, assuming I was ovluating regularly and everthing was fine. What a surprise it was to find out otherwise. Until this was my reality, I also found it easy to judge people who decided to do IVF. There are so many children that need homes right? But, strangely, when intfertility gave us less than 2% chance of getting pregnant on our own, I realized down deep that I wanted to try to get pregnant with the help of ART. I am not sure someone that does not have fertility issues can really comment on a women's choice to persue ART. It is personal choice afterall and I am glad of that.
We are at the beginning of our efforts, and I do not know what will end of happening. But, I can say, that I feel so grateful to live in a time when getting help is an option.
