National Fertility Awareness Week 17-24 July
Designed to educate and support Irish women and men on all aspects of fertility, the Sims IVF National Fertility Awareness Week seeks to provide support, advice, and information about treatments to help those challenged in some way by infertility.
It is important to say that infertility affects one in five Irish people - most of those go on to have healthy babies. Being infertile does not mean that you cannot have a child; it means that you may need professional help to do so.
Our Second National Fertility Awareness Week opens up the discussion about fertility problems and the various solutions.
The week-long campaign begins on Sunday 17th July 2016. Listen out for our Sims IVF medical experts, trained counsellors, and, importantly, those who have experienced fertility issues first-hand on TV and radio. Read articles about this important topic in the press and on our facebook and sims.ie website pages. We are also hosting an information open day, details of which are available on www.sims.ie.
Medical experts addressing aspects of fertility and infertility treatment include Dr. John Kennedy on PCOS and endometriosis; Claire Healy on how to get emotionally fit foe infertility; and Dr Graham Coull on treatment options and success rates, including the latest international advances in reproductive medical care, such as the Early Embryo Viability Assessment test, (EEVA), which is a recent major breakthrough in supporting fertility treatment.
