According to a recent national survey conducted by the American Infertility Association (AIA), couples may be making way too much whoopee before they seek medical help to become pregnant. The most-commonly-missed-question asked respondents what length of time they thought a couple should wait before seeking advice from a physician about the possibility of fertility problems. (A couple is considered infertile if they are trying to conceive but have not done so in one year). Out of 12,000-plus respondents, nearly one-third thought the answer was closer to two-and-a-half years; 18 percent put the number at five years. To help highlight some of the facts about fertility so people can maximize their ability to conceive when ready, the AIA recently launched an education campaign called Focus on Fertility. The program intends to raise awareness about infertility risks, treatment options and other basic fertility facts through its website (www.focusonfertility.org) and free information kit. The site also offers tips to help couples cope with the stress of fertility problems, and suggests some questions to ask both a fertility specialist and an insurance provider. To find out more about the program or to order a free information kit, visit www.focusonfertility.org, or www.americaninfertility.org, or call the AIA at (888) 917-3777
