Top 10 Myths about Infertility Debunked

10.  Facebook is a social network to stay connected with friends – Incorrect; it is a place where everyone under the sun can post pictures of their ultrasounds, belly shots, and new babies to torture infertiles!

9.  You just have to have sex when you are ovulating and you will get pregnant – Think again; I’ve tried before, during and after and yet to bring home that baby!

8.  If you relax you will get pregnant – Nope; Acupuncture, meditation, yoga and massage…still no baby!

7.  It only takes 1 egg and 1 sperm to get pregnant – Try again; I have had literally dozens upon dozens of eggs chased down by hundreds of millions of sperm. 

6.   “Just take cough syrup, which is how my cousin got pregnant.” – False; I have downed bottles of Robitussin and still nothing.  Apparently it requires more expensive drugs to conceive.

5.  Just get a bottle of Boones Farm and she’ll get pregnant – Once again not true; it takes more than a $6 bottle of cheap wine to conceive.  It apparently takes a specialized doctor, injectable medications, a slew of nurses and lab technicians and I forgot to mention tens of thousands of dollars!

4.  The letters and pictures at the fertility clinic are their success stories – I don’t think so; they are paid actors.

3.  Conceiving a child is a beautiful experience between a husband and wife – Wrong; it is a highly invasive and intrusive procedure between you, your nurse, your doctor, the lab techs, the receptionist and your husband!

2.  Any idiot can get pregnant – OK, this may be true…maybe I’m just not dumb enough!

1.  Having sex leads to pregnancy – That’s crap; I don’t even think that is possible!


  1. That is hysterical!!!

  2. That is absolutely hilarious!!!!
