All right, confession time: I hate the women on Fox News. They are virtually all these blonde Barbie-like things with minimal journalistic skill who have become talking heads based purely on their looks. But once in awhile, one of them takes the time to humanize herself.
MSNBC recently ran an article delving into the unique area of infertility among American couples and the psychological trauma that can be associated with infertility. The article discussed how infertility has affected a few couples specifically, and the general facts about infertility:
One in eight American couples will experience infertility, and 1.1 million women will undergo treatment this year. That most won’t talk about it makes it that much more painful: A recent survey of infertility patients reveals that 61 percent hide the struggle to get pregnant from friends and family. More than half of the patients included in the survey, conducted by pharmaceutical giant Schering-Plough, reported that it was easier to tell people they didn’t intend to build a family rather than share their troubles.
