posted: Apr 14, 2010.
Statistics show that nearly 12% (7.3 million) of US women ages 15 - 44 struggle with fertility. That percentage rises to more than 15% for US women ages 34 - 39.
I encourage you to become a Facebook friend of RESOLVE San Diego. Even if you aren't trying to conceive, someone you know probably is.
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association was founded in 1974 by a nurse with infertility, Barbara Eck, who started the first RESOLVE support group around her kitchen table. The same support groups meet today all over the country and is still a huge part of helping women and men diagnosed with infertility find resolution.
RESOLVE is the only non-profit organization with a nationwide network of chapters mandated to promote reproductive health and to ensure equal access to all family building options for men and women experiencing infertility. Across the U.S., RESOLVE local affiliates provide support groups, educational programs and opportunities to meet and connect with others experiencing infertility. Supported by a strong volunteer network, RESOLVE is a source of information and support for the family building journey.
RESOLVE has a variety of free online resources that address treatment, coping, third party reproduction, adoption and living childfree. www.resolve.org offers wide ranging information on the infertility journey. A robust online community provides virtual support to anyone. Information on membership, the RESOLVE network and an events calendar are easily accessible. Learn. Connect. Take Charge.
