National Infertility Awareness Week

Let’s talk infertility – National Infertility Awareness Week

The struggles of infertility are all too common, but are rarely openly discussed. For all the chatter about sex and pregnancy shared between friends and portrayed in social media, the voice of infertility has generally been quiet. But at Park Avenue Fertility, our Connecticut fertility center is trying to change that by supporting education and advocacy initiatives such as National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW).

One great opportunity to raise the collective voice of intended parents is through National Infertility Awareness Week, which is April 21-27, 2024. This special week is sponsored by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. NIAW is the largest public awareness campaign that addresses the public health issue of infertility.

Giving voice to the struggles of infertility

Our Connecticut fertility center patients can feel assured they are not alone in their struggles of infertility. According to the National Institutes of Health, about 9% of men and 11% of women of reproductive age in the United States have experienced fertility problems. It affects people from all walks of life, and chances are, you know people who might be facing challenges of their own trying to conceive, but it simply isn’t talked about.

National Infertility Awareness Week is trying to change that.

This year, organizers of this week are devoted to raising awareness about the struggles of infertility by asking men, women and couples to #LeaveYourMARK2024. This social media campaign gives voice to personal stories in hopes of changing the way people talk about and understand infertility. Our patients can also visit to find opportunities to be involved.
