How to Talk to Friends and Family About Infertility

Final Thoughts

Regardless of the route you take when talking to family and friends, remember you are in control of how much or how little you discuss with them. Starting off slowly and really thinking about who you're talking to -- and how much you tell them -- will help you to start building that support group you need.
By opening up some lines of communication with those who are closest to you, it will also help you to explain to them what you need. As they learn how to help you, they can play a pivotal role in supporting you along the journey of infertility.
