NIAW Day 2 – Take Charge of your fertiliy: Design a plan

It’s Day 2 of National Infertility Awareness Week. Resolve, The National Infertility Association can help and point you in the right direction for moving forward regarding your family building options. They are a tremendous resource and provide insurance information, options, and support.

Design A Plan (As provided by RESOLVE, The National Infertility Association):

If you or a loved one is struggling with infertility, you need to know that there are many roads one can take. Visit to learn more about the family building options listed below. 

Medical Treatment
Medical treatment options include drug therapy, surgical procedures, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surgical techniques. Get the facts. 

Adoption can take many forms: domestic or international; closed or open; private or public. If you are considering adoption as a family building option, learn all you can to make the decision that’s right for you.

Donor Options
Many options exist today for couples who are facing infertility and one or both partners is unable to have a genetically-related child. Learn more about donor egg, donor sperm and donor embryo here. 

Sharing a pregnancy with a surrogate or gestational carrier may be the right option for you if involvement with the pregnancy, prenatal care, genetics and being present for the birth of the child are important. 

Choosing to live childfree is a way to resolve your infertility. When couples experiencing infertility move through the grief over not having a pregnancy or a biologically linked child, it’s an opening into a world of possibilities.
