4 Unexpected Facts About Infertility

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week – 7 days devoted to speaking up about infertility.

The physicians and staff at SRM are devoted to bringing infertility into the light, allowing those affected to speak openly about their journey. In that spirit, we wanted to share a few things you might NOT know about infertility.

1. 1 in 8 women struggle with infertility.

2. 61% of couples struggling with infertility never tell their family.

3. 1 in 3 women over 35 have fertility issues.

4. Infertility affects both men and women equally.

We invite you to join us on social media to spread the word about National Infertility Awareness Week and to speak up about infertility!

Share why NIAW is important to you, using the hashtags #NIAW, #HaveAHeart, and #StartAsking. And feel free to tag SRM on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

The more we talk about infertility, the louder our collective voice becomes. We’re honored to stand beside our patients on their path to parenthood, and we hope you’ll join us in letting them know that they’re not alone.
