Shining a light on infertility during National Infertility Awareness Week
You aren’t alone if you’re struggling to conceive and bring home a healthy baby – and National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) proves it. This inspiring week takes place in April to empower and educate the public about reproductive health and infertility. However, this event isn’t just limited to seven days in April. It’s part of a larger, ongoing movement to make infertility a thing of the past.
Infertility doesn’t discriminate
The physicians at our DFW fertility center know that infertility affects all people, regardless of economic status, race, religion or sexuality. For the 1 out of 8 hopeful parents who face roadblocks to pregnancy, National Infertility Awareness Week provides hope and shows them that they are far from alone.
The odds of overcoming infertility may seem overwhelming, but knowledge is power. Our experienced and compassionate fertility specialists encourage you to ask questions and learn more about infertility. Understanding what you’re up against is one of the best ways to overcome it.
To help you on your journey to learn more, the physicians from our DFW fertility center have some facts to share.
- Infertility isn’t just a female problem. It affects both men and women. In some cases, a combination of female and male infertility can cause issues.
- Women aren’t the only ones who experience an age-related decline in fertility. To a lesser degree, male fertility also decreases with age.
- Fertility treatment is very effective. Approximately 80% of couples who work with a fertility doctor bring home a baby. Many of these men and women only need basic treatments, as only 3% need advanced options such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).
