Quick: What’s prime time to conceive? During Infertility Awareness Week, always held in the springtime, we want to remind you to embrace your fertility and get to know the facts about the reproductive seasons of life.
So you want children, just not right now. Or, you have a supportive partner but he (or she) isn’t ready to get pregnant. What’s a woman to do? See a fertility specialist! The key is knowing your fertility potential at any age – any season – so you will have all of the facts in front of you.
Today’s streamlined fertility tests give you solid clues about your remaining egg supply and the hormones your brain throws at the ovaries to set ovulation in motion every month. We can learn a lot about your fertility potential by asking questions about your monthly periods, family medical history, how long you have been trying to conceive and your overall health and wellness. The number-one infertility awareness indicator, though, is age.
The team at IVFMD will support Infertility Awareness Week April 23-29 by posting on social media, engaging with legislators about improved access to care and telling everyone who will listen about the latest fertility treatments. We want men and women to feel empowered, hopeful and supported as they seek answers and infertility treatment.
Contact us to set up a time for fertility assessment. In the spirit of Infertility Awareness Week, we leave you with these words: “Spring is a time to find out where you are, who you are and move toward where you are going.” — Penelope Trunk
