I just took my son to the park. There was a woman there, about 20, with a little girl slightly younger than my son. I later found out it was her niece.
We started chatting as we watched the kids run around in circles and somehow we started talking about infertility. She mentioned that her sister (the girl's mom) was diagnosed as infertile at a young age but ended up having a daughter.
I have a friend who had a hysterectomy due to hemorraging after the birth of her daughter. I mentioned that and how much my friend was struggling with this, as she has always wanted a big family.
The woman told me that they are doing great things with infertility treatment these days, and again said that her sister only had to take some pills to get pregnant, and that my friend should talk to an obgyn.
I kind of stared at her and then told her that having a hysterectomy isn't exactly something that can be treated with fertility meds, as the baby grows in the uterus and I've never heard of a uterine transplant or anything.
She stared at me and then said "Babies grow in the womb, not the uterus."
