Families, Parents, Friends & Colleagues

When someone you care about opens up to you and tells you that they have problems conceiving a child, they are likely to be distressed and extremely sensitive to comments made by others.

You may be embarrassed and not know what to say, you may be worried about making them feel worse, or you may not appreciate the implications of this problem for those concerned and the  effect it will have on them.  A caring attitude can make all the difference, yet it is often hard for people who have not been in the same situation to understand what someone with fertility problems is experiencing and to feel confident about saying the right thing.
