Sarah Herron Shares Powerful Message On Infertility

Sarah Herron never expected to struggle with fertility issues at 33 years old when she began trying to have a baby. April 21-27, 2024 is National Infertility Awareness Week and the former reality star marked it with a powerful message.

She took to her Instagram to shine a light on the issue that faces millions of people around the world. “22% of couples struggle to get pregnant and many don’t feel heard because of the stigma attached to infertility,” she revealed about the issue.

She shared her diagnosis from three years ago, “I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve, which means you basically don’t have many eggs left.” She referred to the news as a “garage door” shutting on her.

“All of the sudden you’re this decrepit, dried-up old lady and I didn’t understand it,” she confessed. She revealed that women she had known for years told her that they too struggled with fertility issues.

“Infertility can make you feel broken, and for some reason there is still so much shame around this diagnosis.” Sarah Herron said in a video.

She added that sharing her fertility struggles gave her a sense of belonging and hope. She ended the powerful message with a request.

“For National Infertility Awareness Week this week, my ask to anyone who has experienced fertility struggles is to share your story out loud so that families who may just be receiving their diagnosis don’t feel that same isolation.”
