A Message from RESOLVE’s Clinic Network Council

As National Infertility Awareness Week® begins, we, the proud members of RESOLVE’s Clinic Network Council acknowledge the need for greater public understanding about infertility, the challenges our patients face, and the medical care we provide. We believe people deserve access to information about the medical options available to them to build their families and want to shine a light on resources, such as RESOLVE, that provide that information. We encourage the public to seek information from credible sources and seek advice from medical professionals in the infertility/fertility specialty.

As defined by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), ‘‘Infertility’’ is a disease, condition, or status characterized by any of the following:

  • The inability to achieve a successful pregnancy based on a patient’s medical, sexual, and reproductive history, age, physical findings, diagnostic testing, or any combination of those factors.
  • The need for medical intervention, including, but not limited to, the use of donor gametes or donor embryos to achieve a successful pregnancy either as an individual or with a partner.
  • In patients having regular, unprotected intercourse and without any known etiology for either partner suggestive of impaired reproductive ability, evaluation should be initiated at 12 months when the female partner is under 35 years of age and at 6 months when the female partner is 35 years of age or older.

If you’re experiencing infertility, we urge you to seek advice from a fertility specialist. You can find one through our networks of clinics. We are proud to support RESOLVE and their mission to ensure that IVF remains legal, available, and accessible to anyone who needs it.
