Definition of Fertility
Fertility: The ability to conceive and have children, the ability to become pregnant through normal sexual activity. Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after a year of regular intercourse without contraception.
When I was trying to conceive my first child, I went through major drama. Basically, I knew I was going to have issues since I have never regularly had my monthly visitor ever. When I hooked up with my ex, we tried to have kids from the moment we thought we'd be together forever. Fast forward to 18 months of "trying" and we have to start the infertility process through Kaiser. As we start the process, we move from California to Nevada and have to sort of start over. We finally get the insurance ok to start infertility treatments and my clinic that I'm using is in the midst of a summer move. I go through a harrowing summer but discover in August 1998 that I'm pregnant. I'm one of the "lucky" ones because I don't have to go through a lot of different treatments to get pregnant. Clomid, which is a pretty entry level drug, works for me.
Anyway, whatever your feelings, I think this article is worth reading and if you're a mom, kiss your babies tonight for me :-)
