Lucy Cuthew is an author and editor. She has worked in publishing since she graduated with a Masters in English Literature in 2006. She is the author of over 30 books, and is currently finishing her novel for teenagers, titled Horrible Love Story, about a teenage girl who falls in love with the wrong person.

It wasn’t really a sudden thing. Infertility never is. It was more of a creeping understanding that this wasn’t going to happen easily. For a long time, it felt like the news just got worse and worse. We knew that we needed IVF because of my husband, but when we went for investigations prior to starting treatment, we found that I had endometriosis, a growth in my womb, abnormally low hormone levels, and not very many eggs.
