“Mother was given DES while pregnant with me - although they say I have no obvious abnormalities. I am healthy in every other way with unexplained infertility and have had gynecological problems since I was young. I suspect this may be why.”
“My sister has fertility issues as well so I learned a lot from her struggles. I was never taught about infertility only how to prevent pregnancy in school. Any tool that would help a couple trying to conceive understand they are not alone is a wonderful thing. Thank you.”

- 3.5 million people in the United Kingdom (1 in 6 couples) who suffer.
