Difficulties conceiving, becoming pregnant, and maintaining a pregnancy during fertility treatment

While everyone we spoke to for this resource had experienced challenges conceiving, becoming pregnant, or having a pregnancy go to term, not all had started or tried fertility treatment. These experiences can be challenging regardless of whether they occur in the context of fertility treatment, however because fertility treatment can offer a sense of hope, lack of ‘success’ can be even more distressing.

The two films below feature people’s experiences of fertility treatment not working. In the first film, people share what it is like not being able to conceive or become pregnant during fertility treatment. The second film looks at experiences of pregnancy loss and miscarriage while undergoing IVF.
