I emerged from obscurity in June 2008 for an unusual reason. I agreed to discuss, on the record, the fallout of failed ‘fertility’ treatments with a national news reporter. My introduction to the world came after a prolonged, painful encounter with what’s termed ‘unexplained infertility.’ Giving voice to the experience also resulted in a fair amount of hyperventilating.

It was, in a word, terrifying, to see my face on The New York Times homepage.
