29 Jun World Fertility Awareness Month
Back in 1989, June was chosen as the World Infertility Awareness Month, during which the general public is informed about the different infertility issues couples face. It is the perfect occasion for common myths regarding infertility to be debunked, and for providing support to all those who are in the process of trying to conceive.
A common misconception is that infertility doesn’t affect a big part of the world population, but in reality, according to the WHO, between 48 million couples and 186 million individuals experience some sort of infertility throughout their life.
Also, it is worth mentioning that a lot of factors are at play: male factors, female factors, sometimes even a combination of both, while other times it cannot be explained. Still, environmental and lifestyle factors have proven to be associated with lower fertility rates, and those include smoking, excessive alcohol intake, obesity, and exposure to environmental pollutants.
You might be wondering how you could show support for your friends or family members who are currently struggling with infertility. The color orange is chosen as the symbolic color of infertility because it conveys a sense of compassion and warmth, while the colors of the infertility awareness ribbon are pink and blue.
Lastly, if you want to raise awareness about infertility, don’t shy away from opening up about your personal struggles in your conception journey. You might be surprised to learn that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of other people going through the exact same thing as you, and you might find comfort in connecting with them, as they would be able to understand exactly what you’re dealing with.
