What is National Infertility Awareness Week?

National Infertility Awareness Week (April 18, 2021 – April 24, 2021), hosted by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, is a time to change the conversation about infertility, educate others, advocate for the infertility community and be open about your own journey. Each year during this important week, millions come together to bring awareness to infertility by addressing the stigmas, barriers and challenges surrounding infertility.

It’s important to remember that infertility does not discriminate based on race, sexuality, economic status or religion, and that the movement begins by uniting together to make a difference. Advocacy efforts are more successful when people have a better overall understanding of infertility and how it affects so many men and women. It also means that those who are struggling might receive more support, feel more hopeful and gain confidence to open up about their own fertility challenges.

Knowing the Facts 

Infertility can feel isolating, but NIAW is a reminder that no one is alone in their journey to conceive. Knowing that infertility is common and treatable can give hope to those facing struggles caused by infertility.
