"MTV is looking for a couple ages 18-29 that are currently experiencing infertility to be featured on a upcoming episode of True Life: I have Infertility. If this sounds like you send your story directly to MTV at MTVInfertile@mtv.com and let us know once you have applied."

TRUE LIFE: I'M HAVING FERTILITY ISSUES

Have you always wanted to have a baby and are finding out that getting pregnant isn't as easy as it seems? Have you been trying for months -- or even years -- to get pregnant without success? Have you or your partner been diagnosed with a condition that makes it difficult to conceive naturally and plan to seek help from a fertility clinic? Are you so consumed with having a baby that you'll stop at nothing to have your own? If so, is your partner right there with you? Or is he or she reluctant to spend the money and energy it would take to conceive through high tech means? Are your fertility issues causing problems with your relationship? Has trying to have a baby left you emotionally, physically, and financially drained? Do you have a pre-existing health condition where being pregnant could be dangerous for you and your baby, but you're determined to beat the odds? 

If you appear to be the ages of 18-29 and you've been struggling with fertility issues, please email us at MTVInfertile@mtv.com Please include your name, story, location, PHONE NUMBER, and photograph if possible. Please remember to include your PHONE NUMBER... "

    Thats ok they said you only need to appear to be 18-29...Stick out tongue

    I also don't see how this is MTVs target audience at all. But then again, a lot of us watch MTV...

    I can understand an 18 year old only if they have a special situation. As in already diagnosed with a fertility issue (like pcos where tttc isn't the only time it's diagnosed) or someone in Cheezus' shoes who has overcome something serious and waiting just isn't an option.

  • I guess I could see if it was a pretty serious issue. And I understand that It's not always the length of time TTC I was DX infertile due to PCOS before we even started TTC. However, I wouldn't call myself infertile for awhile because I felt like it offended people who had been trying much longer. 

    Also, I can't remember cheezus' story. Can someone refresh my memory. Because now it's bothering me that I can't remember.

    I'll totally watch.  I actually think MTV's age demographic is a lot older than most people think.  Back in the day it was more geared towards a younger audience but I know more adults who watch MTV shows now than I do teenagers.  ex, I don't know a single teen who watches Teen Mom but I'm addicted.
