  • Thank you for sharing a very personal story with your readers. I’m ashamed to say it never occurred to me that infertility would be considered a problem in your sect. I assumed that everyone just got pregnant without issue and had a bunch of kids. How terrible of me and I’m sorry. I’m glad it worked out for you and congratulations on your lovely family.

  • I’m so sorry…I know your pain well. I’m 40 without any children, but 5 losses. Twice I went through the difficult position of having 3 sisters pregnant at the same time. They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger but I’m so tired of being strong!

  • Oy. I am in the same boat, except after 11 years I have 5 losses and no babies. I did have 3 sisters pregnant at the same time 3 times, and I know the pain…10 siblings having a bunch Of babies would be devastating. PCOS is a terrible club but it has some amazing members!
