5 Things You Can Do During National Infertility Awareness Week

Although infertility is a condition which affects 1 in 8 couples today, many of those struggling with infertility often feel ignored, misunderstood, or poorly treated by friends and family – and even sometimes by the medical community. Before and during National Infertility Awareness Week, there are many things you can do to help spread the word and take action in support of those coping with infertility. Here are just some ideas and points of action to consider.

  1. Talk about infertility
    Those struggling with infertility often feel embarrassed or ashamed to talk openly about their condition. This shame has to come to an end. The more open and vocal people are about their battle with this disease, the less infertility will be seen as a stigma and more as a medical condition where no one is to blame, certainly not those suffering from it. Make a point during National Infertility Awareness Week to talk about your fertility issues with someone: a friend or family member, your family doctor, a clergyman, anyone to whom you feel close and want to share your story. Don’t let the stigma of infertility keep you silent and afraid to express your true feelings and desires.
  2. Blog about infertility
    During National Infertility Awareness Week, resolve to post a blog or article about infertility. Talk about your own experiences: when you realized you had a fertility problem; how you have dealt (well or poorly) with infertility; if you have decided to pursue medical treatment or adoption and why or why not. Some good examples can be found on Købe Viagra online, which has a great deal of information about infertility, impotency and many other sex related subjects. And if you are not personally dealing with infertility you can still take part by opening a discussion on what you can do to be more sensitive to those with infertility in the future, or provide a resource list for those who could use it.
  3. Take the Project IF Pledge
    Project IF is RESOLVE’s continuing public education project. The pledge is dedicated to ensuring that the public understands how widespread infertility is among couples today; that there are different ways to build a family; that infertility is a disease with physical, emotional and financial impact on those fighting it; and that those diagnosed with infertility should know when to consult with a specialist. You can sign up at anytime to take the pledge yourself; why not ask friends and family to do the same during National Infertility Awareness Week?
  4. Ask your local libraries or bookstores to feature books on infertility
    The blog My Hopeful Journey proposed the great idea of going out to libraries and asking them to feature books related to infertility during National Infertility Awareness Week. Why not also bring the idea to your local bookseller as well? Spotlighting such titles can help raise public knowledge, and might get help to those who need it most.
  5. Make that long-delayed call to an infertility specialist
    Maybe your family doctor or ob/gyn has given you a referral to see a reproductive specialist and you just haven’t felt up to making the call. You’re uncertain you really want to go forward with fertility treatments, both for the emotional and financial toll it can take on you. Don’t delay it any longer; make a promise to call during National Fertility Awareness Week so you can at least begin to get some answers and more information.
