Empowering Patients During National Infertility Awareness Week
Each April, Fertility Centers of New England recognize National Infertility Awareness Week to dispel many of the myths and misconceptions about infertility to reduce the stigmas that stand in the way of building families. But this mission is one we carry with us each and every day. By sharing stories and experiences, we can together as a community to help drive the conversation, bring people together, and empower those at any stage of their journey.
If you’ve been struggling with infertility, know that you’re not alone—infertility affects men and women alike, impacting nearly one in eight couples and about 15 million people in the U.S. annually.
Infertility among men, also known as male factor infertility, can usually be tied to a challenge with sperm production. Other factors that can impact fertility in men include age, weight, marijuana usage, alcohol consumption, and exposure to some medications, toxins, and radiation.
On the other hand, infertility among women may be tied to various health conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or endometriosis. Similarly, age, weight gain or loss, smoking, alcohol consumption, and other factors can also play a role in a woman’s fertility (though it’s worth noting that age impacts women’s fertility much more strongly than it does for men).
As such, it’s important to start working with a fertility specialist as soon as possible if you are having trouble conceiving.
