In brief: See your PCP

The desire to have children for many women and men is huge, and for many indescribable.
When you are faced with infertility, immense disappointment, fear, shame, depression, anger or surprise are all normal. Sitting down with your md to discuss reproductive options and your symptoms would be helpful. At least to better understand where to go next.

In brief: Maybe

Certainly the stress of infertility can make a woman or man or couple feel that way.
It is not uncommon. Having a good grasp of what is going on can help you feel better so it is important to have a fertility specialist who really keeps you informed and helps explain things well. But certainly there can be many other reasons (personal, family, job related, etc) that can also lead to those feelings.
