Join the movement and get involved, “Infertility Awareness Week 2013! Did you know that over 7.3 million people are affected by infertility! More then 30% of infertility cases are given a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. After undergoing a full diagnostic work up women and men are still not given a credible underlying cause for their condition. Infertility is not just a female issue, men are affected by infertility too. One in 25 males has a low sperm count and one in 35 is sterile. Did you know that only 15 states mandate infertility insurance. What happen to the other 35 states? Yes, infertility is a disease! Yes, just like cancer and heart disease. Infertility Awareness Week is not only meant to bring light to the issues of insurance coverage, but to also educate individuals on their own fertility. Women and men need to be made aware of how long is to long of trying to conceive before seeking medical intervention.
People facing infertility issues should not feel ashamed of their issues. 1 out of 6 couples faces infertility issues on some level. I know how I felt during my personal journey. I watched as my cycle journey went on my support system began to dwindle. It became a lonely dark place. I promised myself that once I reached my goal of a successful pregnancy I would join the movement and spread infertility awareness. What are you doing to make a difference? Creative Love Egg Donor and Surrogate Agency is showing our support by visiting many of the different IVF clinics that we work with throughout Florida to show them the appreciation we have for the hard work and dedication they give to the many intended parents that we work with. These amazingly talented Reproductive Endocrinologist, Embryologist, Clinical Nurses, IVF nurse coordinators and support staff give so much of themselves to improved the chance for so many to create a family. Creative Love is donating proceeds from our April cycle funds to Resolve to help in the movement to raise awareness.
Do you want to help make a difference too? Call your representatives in congress and let them hear your voice! Raising awareness could possibly help get insurance companies to cover infertility treatment in more states. Did you know that Florida is ranked 33 on Resolve, “State Fertility Scorecard. Did you know that we have over 319,182 infertile population. Did you know that we have NO state law requiring insurance coverage for fertility treatment. Do you want to make a difference then make that call. Be empowered and join the movement! Nobody going through infertility issues should ever feel alone. Did you know that in 2010 National Infertility Awareness Week became a federally recognized health observance by the Department of Health and Humane Services. Together we need to educated young women on the importance of preserving their future fertility should they decide to further their education and join the ranks of corporate America over motherhood until their late 30’s. More importantly we need to support the millions of people that struggle daily with infertility. Join the movement today!
