April 24 - 30 is National Infertility Awareness Week!
April 24 is the beginning of National Infertility Awareness Week and throughout the week you will see us promoting infertility awareness through social media and at our South Florida fertility clinics. The goal of NIAW is to bring awareness to a disease that affects over 7 million women worldwide. NIAW is a great opportunity for anyone affected with infertility to communicate a message of hope and understanding.
Check out the facts below…
- Infertility impacts 1 in 8 couples of reproductive ages.
- One third of infertility issues are considered “unexplained” infertility.
- One third of infertility issues are attributed to males.
- Women between the ages of 20-24 have an 86% chance of conceiving after trying a year. As women age, this percentage gradually falls. Between the ages of 40 – 44, the chances decrease to 36%.
At IVF FLORIDA, our fertility clinics are showing our support with our #HaveAHeart campaign. This campaign is marked by the color orange (red = love, yellow=happiness), which has represented infertility since ancient times. During NIAW, don’t be surprised if you see touches of orange throughout our offices and even new shirts worn by our staff – a reminder to of our ongoing support system.
