I guess the title says it all. Does anyone know of an online community or support group for infertility? Preferably a US based one? Thanks!:flowersfo

I like the American Fertility Association's website. www.theafa.org
Haven't exactly struggled with it yet (since i haven't tried to get pregnant yet, but that time will come, since it's been proven through tests and such that it'll be a challenge) but i know what you mean about when it seems like it's all around you, like when people make comments like "so when are you gonna have kids" or my personal favorite "if you had kids, you'd understand."

I am a member of tcoyf and it was okay but I found that I really like www.fertilityfriend.com
, this has a "sister" site that you switch to after you become pregnant, I went through infertility for four years before I finally went with IVF and have my wonderful son!
froggg123--Congrats on your son! Four years of infertility?...you must be a very strong woman. It's been 2 years for me and it's just awful...
Fleur-de-lis-I also totally
recommend fertilityfriend.com. It'a a great site, it's huge, and filled with incredibly smart women who know an awful lot about infertility. In addition, I consider the book "take charge of your fertility" the bible of fertility/infertility. For all who haven't read it yet, it will completely inspire you about your body!
Marie, yes-people say some pretty insensitive stuff when it comes to infertility! My own sisters will say things like, "you don't have kids, so it's really easy for you to do this or that..."
