This! I once heard a consultant describe the desire for another child as a 'biological urge'. Just like other biological urges, like being thirsty/hungry/needing the loo etc the urge doesn't go until it has been satisfied.

And this is why struggling to conceive becomes consuming for a woman. I've lost count of how many clients have been triggered by well meaning family and friends telling them to 'relax and it will happen'.

There is no off switch to this urge. Supportive listening is the biggest gift we can give here.
