People with infertility matter.
That’s why we believe infertility awareness should be more than just one week.
When it comes to issues surrounding infertility and family building, Fertility Answers is committed to continually raising the public’s infertility awareness. We care about people with infertility and are doing something to make a difference to the many who are impacted by infertility. National Infertility Awareness Week® occurs every April, and Fertility Answers wants to help raise awareness about infertility, fertility potential and fertility preservation.
The Facts About Infertility
Infertility impacts more people than you would think. Approximately 1 in 8 couples in the U.S. struggle with the inability to conceive a child, many in silence. And infertility doesn’t just impact women. Men can also be the cause of a couple’s infertility in up to 40% of cases. Additionally, 25% of infertile couples have more than one factor that contributes to their infertility. And irregular or abnormal ovulation accounts for approximately 25 percent of all female infertility problems. The good news is that most infertility cases — 85% to 90% — can be treated with conventional medical therapies such as medication or surgery. While vital for some patients, in vitro fertilization and similar treatments account for less than 3% of infertility services.
Learn Your Fertility Potential With Free AMH Testing
- Anti-mullerian, or AMH testing is a simple blood test that can provide useful information about a woman’s ovarian reserve, or egg supply. The levels of AMH in the blood indicate the approximate number of follicles in a woman’s ovaries and you and your physician can use this information to make treatment decisions. AMH testing is a unique form of ovarian reserve testing because it can be performed at any time during your menstrual cycle. It can help women begin planning their families and identify whether fertility preservation with egg freezing is appropriate for them. During the month of April 2021, AMH testing is free with a new patient consult (a $78 savings).
Preserve Your Fertility With Egg Freezing
- At Fertility Answers, we know that there are many reasons why women may want to postpone pregnancy. Some women may be focusing on their education or career, while others are still trying to find the perfect partner. Egg freezing is an excellent way to preserve future fertility. Egg freezing is also a vital resource for women with cancer who are of child-bearing age. The ability to freeze your eggs before cancer treatment can help ensure a family in the future. During the month of April 2021, Elective Egg Freezing is $6,000, excluding medications (a $2,200 savings).
It is up to all of us to transform how others view infertility. One that will help educate and provide resolution to the millions of Americans impacted.
