National Infertility Awareness Week is a yearly initiative held April 23-29, 2018 that alerts and informs the public about the causes and stresses attributed to infertility. This year’s theme is #FlipTheScript. Infertility can affect anyone as InfertilityAwareness.org states “no matter what race, religion, sexuality or economic status you are.”
Promoting Awareness for Women’s Health
Millions of Americans come together to stand in support for people who are experiencing challenges starting a family. Stigmas and barriers are being broke through with each year that the initiative is in place. People want the public to know how common infertility is and the stories behind the men and women who have experienced difficulty with family planning.
There are many ways to get involved as explained by InfertilityAwareness.org. For example, you can start locally by informing your community about infertility. You can host a Walk of Hope where money is raised for RESOLVE.
Female Gynecologist Dr. Wilburn Care for Her Patients
Dr. Wilburn encourages you to share your stories of infertility with her when you come in for an appointment. It allows her to understand the challenges you’ve faced getting or staying pregnant. It helps her come up with a complete picture as to what is standing in the way of you having a baby.
She’ll take a look at your medical history, learn about your current lifestyle habits, and do testing to see what could possibly be causing your infertility. There is always a possibility that your partner may be impotent which could be why you can’t get pregnant. No matter what the case may be, Dr. Wilburn will put the pieces of the puzzle together to help you solve the mystery behind the medical condition.
