Bust an Infertility Myth: As soon as you adopt, you’ll get pregnant.

From the RESOLVE website:

Adoption does not guarantee or ensure pregnancy, and it should not be used as a means to try and get pregnant. Pregnancy is a biological process, and a couple can not determine if and when they will become pregnant.

My side: Yes, everyone hears these stories. The minute they adopted, they got pregnant. Of course they did! Guess what - adopting in itself will not improve my husband's sperm. Any correlation between adopting and getting pregnant lies only in God's sick sense of humor.

  1. This one is among my favorites. It usually is an explanation for why "just relax" will work. As in, "You need to relax. My neighbor adopted a baby and then she got pregnant because she was no longer worried about having a family."
