At the beginning of this year, we (Orchid Experience) did a 5-class workshop series for couples facing infertility. In one particular discussion during this workshop, one of the couple’s mentioned how easy it was to hide their infertility from the world. At that moment we all recognized that couples going through infertility generally look normal, sound normal, and have no identifying markers that make it obvious that they are suffering through a difficult medical diagnosis. Infertility is an invisible disease.
