Infertility is a nightmare.
You not only deal with not being able to achieve your dream, or feeling that you are trapped in a body that does not work like it's supposed to. You step into a parallel reality in which you are treated like a science experiment and in case that wasn't enough, you have to deal with all kinds of insensitive comments. Those remarks at times are borne out of the best of intentions but end up causing more pain to somebody who is already hurting badly. Since many are so unfamiliar with infertility, they simply don't know what to say. That's why it's even more useful to know which phrases to avoid altogether if you have a friend who is struggling to conceive. Here's a list of what not to say to a friend who hasn't been able to conceive. - By Jeannette Kaplun
