Fertility should never be taken for granted

We are used to reading crackling pregnancy announcements on social networks, full of happiness and enthusiasm, presented by the protagonists eagerly waiting to see their child. Don’t assume that it’s always roses and flowers. Actress Anne Hathaway, for example, drew attention to the difficulties of getting pregnant through an Instagram post.

Announcing her second pregnancy, Anne dedicated a special thought to

 “all who go through infertility and conception hell”

recalling that none of her pregnancies came easy.

He used a strong word, “hell”, but it can become a really dramatic situation when for months and months, if not years, pregnancy is sought without any result. With all the consequences of the case, even on the couple’s relationship .

Infertility is not a problem to be ashamed of

One couple out of 5 has fertility problems, but this number is constantly increasing, partly due to environmental factors, lifestyles and the increasingly advanced age at which a woman is trying to get pregnant.

Talking about fertility problems, dealing with those who have not experienced them, is complicated, indeed very complicated. We at Conceivecorner know it well, as we have been welcoming women who are facing small or big difficulties on their journey towards parenthood for more than 10 years. You feel understood only by those who are facing the same problem . All the others, no matter how well-disposed they are towards us, struggle to understand the feelings of those who have been struggling with all their strength, for months or years, to be able to have a baby.

Infertility, numbers in hand, is very common but, despite this, it still remains a taboo. Testimonies such as that of the American actress help to raise public awareness of a problem that should not be underestimated , but also to help those suffering from infertility not to feel different, to come out of their isolation, to talk about it and discuss it freely.
