Seen this and thought I'd post it.
I remember before I went through my first IVF a girl in work (who had been through IVF herself and it was successful first time) told me that the breakdown of her marriage started during fertility treatment. I remember being terrified and thinking I don't want that!!
For me and my OH it's made us so much stronger! I love him to bits and I believe that we'll have a child together one day whether it be through IVF or adoption.
I hate this journey like everyone, but I have friends who are with their partners and have children and they aren't happy. Of course, I wish conceiving had been easy for us and we didn't need IVF, but I'd hate to be in a relationship with someone and wonder why I'm with them. I look at these friends and do think IVF would break their relationship.
One particular friend told me that if her partner had sperm issues (as my partner does) she would hate him and she would definitely resent him. She said she could only cope if the issue lied with her.
I'm extremely greatful to be with someone who through all of this we've come out stronger. He's my best friend 🙂
