National Infertility Awareness Week – How You Can Get Involved

In the United States, approximately 10% or 6.1 million women have difficulty getting or staying pregnant. Despite how common an experience fertility challenges may be, many women don’t feel comfortable discussing infertility and their personal experiences with others. Instead, many choose to head to the internet to learn from others outside their immediate circle of friends and family, to learn from other women and find others who share their same experiences. 

As we navigate the COVID-19 epidemic, these online communities and resources are more important than ever as you navigate your fertility journey. In honor of this year’s National Infertility Awareness Week on April 19-25, we at OvuSense want to help celebrate, educate, connect and empower women from around the world and at all phases of their fertility journey.
