Hi, I'm new to this community. After reading some of the posts, I thought this may be a good place to get support as I struggle through infertility with my husband. We've been trying to conceive for over 9 months and had no luck. I have a 7cm uterine fibroid, suspected endometriosis, and possible PCOS (I'm currently waiting for the results from my doctor). Needless to say, I'm terrified and grieving for our possible loss of a family. At 24 years-old, I feel like I am being robbed of my fertility and my health. I'm trying to remain hopeful that there still is a chance that we could conceive our own child, but I feel like the odds are stacked against us. In addition, I am afraid to share this information with family members due to possible insensitive comments and hurtful questions. To all of you who share my pain and worry, how do you deal with the rough days? How did you share this information with your family members and friends?View Thread
