“My goal isn’t for this to be about me, but to be about the community of men and women struggling with this disease and offering support.”
Macy Rodeffer is a 23-year-old birth photographer from Illinois.
However, one week later she miscarried, she told BuzzFeed News. In the summer of 2013, she found out she was pregnant again, but then miscarried early in the pregnancy.
In December of that year, the couple decided to go to a fertility specialist.
It was there that Rodeffer said the couple found out that male factor infertility, Stage IV endometriosis, and a large cyst on her left ovary would make it very difficult for her to carry a child to term.
After having the cyst removed, Rodeffer decided that she would undergo in vitro fertilization in pursuit of her dream of having a child.
