    Yes! Most definitely, once they were old enough. It may be important for them to know, especially if they also have issues conceiving when they are older.

    @EverAfterBegins:  I will preface this by saying I have no experience with IVF/IUI…….I don’t imagine i would have that conversation until they were old enough to understand it, but I cannot imagine why I would not tell them.  However, I also would not have a problem telling people we did IUI/IVF in the 1st place.  I guess if a couple wanted to keep that a secret then maybe they would not tell their children.

    Sure. If anything, sharing your struggle to conceive naturally may demonstrate to your child that you fought for their life. Pretty powerfu, IMO! 🙂 Also, as a PP suggested, it’s useful information that your child should be aware of that may affect their fertility.

    I would.  I know I wasn’t an unplanned pregnancy, that my parents were actively trying to have me.  That makes me feel special a little.  I would think having your parents fight even harder to have you would mean even more.

    Eventually, yes. I wouldn’t make a huge deal of it, but babies come into this world through all sorts of means and every story has beauty in it 🙂
