#HaveAHeart During National Infertility Awareness Week
April 24 - 30 is National Infertility Awareness Week which aims to spotlight a disease that affects over 7 million women worldwide. NIAW allows for anyone affected with infertility the opportunity to communicate a message of hope and understanding. Infertility is a personal journey that that could affect anyone at any age, but is also an experience that so many share.
Check out these 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%.
CRM is showing our support with our #HaveAHeart campaign. The campaign promotes infertility awareness during NIAW through social media and at our clinics. You may noticed orange represented in our offices to show support for our patient community. The campaign uses the color orange (red = love, yellow=happiness), because it has represented infertility since ancient times.
