IVF has seemed to be a topic of conversation a lot recently, especially with recent news coverage. I don't know if I will need IVF yet (although quite probable) but it seems people in my parents generation and above have quite strong opinions on IVF in that it shouldn't happen. Phrases like "you shouldn't mess with nature" and comments that are religious in nature (I am an Atheist) are starting to get to me, the people closest to me don't seem to even change their view when I ask them "do you not think I should be a parent?" their response is usually along the lines of if it can't happen naturally there is a reason for it! I get really hurt by it because these people are supposed to love me so why wouldn't they think I was fit to be a parent just because of this bloody disease that I didn't ask for?
Have any of you had the same discussions? What do you say to people like this? Especially people who are family?
Any advice/support would be great, thanks so much ladies I hope you are all having a pain free day xxxxxx
