And in Disgusting News...

Pregnant women are almost always constipated, because their bodies are using every possible nutrient to grow a baby. Therefore, many prenatal vitamins include a mild laxative to counteract this. However, when you are infertile, you are taking prenatal vitamins, and their laxative, for a long, long time without actually being pregnant--or constipated. Therefore, if you're infertile for a year, you experience, ahem, loose stools...FOR A YEAR. And you thought the worst thing about being infertile was not being able to bring life into the world. Shows what you know.
