This year National Infertility Awareness Week is April 18, 20-24th 2021. During this week and all year long, our goal at Coastal Fertility Specialists is to share our knowledge and unwavering support with our patients and all those suffering from Infertility. This is also an important time to bring global attention to the disease that effects so many.
“Sadly, over 18 million women in the United States suffer from infertility holding them back from the greatest happiness life has to offer,” says Dr. John Schnorr, Founding Partner at Coastal Fertility Specialists. “Fortunately, through simple and advanced medical treatments, success rates with persistence are over 95%. My hope is that Infertility Awareness Week encourages couples with infertility to investigate the cause and treatments to help them build the families of their dreams.”
It’s a scientific fact that 1 in 8 couples struggle with infertility; too often alone and too often in silence. Coastal Fertility is on a mission to change this. Every day, we strive to inspire greater empathy for those struggling with infertility. For many of us, it hits close to home. Some of us have faced our own struggles trying to conceive. Many of us have witnessed the emotional pain infertility can cause through our friends, family and of course, our patients. To the millions of individuals suffering from this disease, National Infertility Awareness Week® (NIAW) is our chance to come together and communicate a message of understanding, share a feeling of support, and relay a promise of hope.
Below are some interesting statistics taken from www.resolve.org
- Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive for 12 months or to carry a pregnancy through a live birth.
- 1 in 4 couples in developing countries have been found to be affected by infertility.
- 1/3 of the diagnoses have to do with problems with the female, 1/3 is male and 1/3 are both.
- Only 15 states have an insurance mandate to offer some form of infertility insurance.
Anyone can face the struggle of infertility. No matter what race, religion, sexuality or economic status you are, infertility doesn’t discriminate. Together, we can change how others view infertility. It begins with being part of the national movement, National Infertility Awareness Week®. This week unites millions of Americans who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families.
