I think I can speak to both sides of this. I never really wanted children in general. My husband did and I dutifully went through the fertility tests and treatments but it didn’t work out. I was actually somewhat relieved, though I wondered if something was wrong with me because I was relieved. It seemed abnormal not to want children.
