For every ten couples that try to conceive, at least one will struggle with infertility. This means that someone you know either has, is, or will be experiencing difficulty conceiving. Yet, as common as it is, infertility is still a taboo topic among many social circles.
1 out of 8 couples have trouble conceiving and 1 in 4 have experienced the loss of a pregnancy. That is probably more common than you realized and asking a family that struggles with infertility and pregnancy loss why they haven’t had kids yet (or why they haven’t had more kids) can bring up feelings of grief, pain, or frustration.
