For National Infertility Awareness Week, this April 20–26, the NICHD joins the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women’s Health (OWH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC NCCDPHP), the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association for a Twitter chat on infertility.
Did you know that infertility is about as common as diabetes in the United States? Yet myths and misperceptions about this condition abound. Join @NICHD_NIH to learn the facts about infertility and about new research that is helping us understand infertility—and that may one day provide for better treatments.
