Why Infertility Doesn't Mean You Can't Be a ParentInfertility is not an issue that women plan for when they're mapping out their life paths. Most people make their way through childhood and teen years, then reach young adulthood assuming that, someday, they will become parents in the traditional way. But life doesn't always go as planned. The human body is a very intricate and complex system, and there are numerous ways that fertility can be affected. The most important thing to remember is that infertility does not mean you will never be a parent. There are treatment options and, if those are unsuccessful, you have other options for creating a family. But first of all, understanding more about fertility helps you get a handle on the issue and create a plan for the future.
