Having a baby is a joyous moment in life, and finding out your pregnant is a very exciting experience. However, trying unsuccessfully to become pregnant and not knowing the reasons behind it can be devastating. Couples struggling with infertility can often feel depressed and lonely, especially when it seems like everyone they know is expecting a baby.
Infertility is defined by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine as when a couple is unsuccessful at conceiving a baby (becoming pregnant) within a one-year period of having regular sexual intercourse without the use of birth control. It may come as a surprise, but infertility actually affects about 15 percent of couples trying to conceive.
