If you are struggling with the issues of infertility and feel lost and helpless, you are not alone. It is normal to feel withdrawn and uninterested, but what matters is how we break our emotional barriers are come out of it with immense strength.
People with infertility are often looked down and shunned from the society. Only a few understand the physical, mental and emotional struggles they go through each day. Because of the way the society looks and treats people with infertility, it further worsens the situation they are in and they become further withdrawn from the society.
Apart from the invasive procedures that tarnish their mental health, the way the people around her behave also leaves an intense mark on their emotional wellness that some women even get into depression. The once happy-go-lucky girl who was so full of life and satisfied with her marriage becomes the silent gloomy person standing at the corner of the room. It becomes an everyday struggle to even get out of bed and such women go through day after day hoping for their lucky star to give them a baby.
But there are some infertility stories of women who braved all such social stigma surrounding infertility and opened up to show everyone how the life of an infertile woman feels like. These women inspire us, give us strength and show us how one can have a happy ending at the end of their infertility journey, doesn’t matter what that is as far as one is contented with it.
