Hi ladies,

I just saw an article on this at a Dr.'s office and just looked it up on-line. It seems that there is research that shows that the stress that comes with infertility is the same as having AIDS/Cancer/Heart Disease. Why do I find this hard to believe? Maybe I am in denial. I think my stress levels would be much higher than I have had with IF if I had any of these other issues. Still and all...for IF to even be mentioned in the same breathe as these other issues..it really made me stop and think. I..and you have REALLY been through it!! We have been/are going through a serious trauma in our lives. I KNEW this..but to see research to back this up is very interesting to me. Here is the article I found on this:
