National Infertility Awareness Week April 24-30 | “Secret Stigma of Infertility”

This is National Infertility Awareness Week® April 24-30

West Coast Fertility Centers is definitely on the bandwagon to support and educate the public about so many courageous people who struggle with infertility. Please read the following warm message from the Founder and Medical Director of West Coast Fertility Centers—David Diaz, MD, FACOG

“The Secret Stigma of Infertility”

Women and men struggling with infertility are surrounded in daily life by physical, emotional and social stressors which are difficult to avoid. The “Secret Stigma” of infertility is compounded by the feelings of isolation and helplessness mixed with guilt and a healthy dose of anxiety.  The reluctance to share such turmoil with even close friends and family is founded on the underlying dread of mythical advice and fear of caustic comments from well-wishers. The medial insurance industry has further trivialized the impact of infertility by categorizing its treatment as “elective” deluding itself to believe anyone would “elect” to be sub-fertile.

After practicing the “secret specialty” of fertility for 22 years, the dreams of aspiring parents continue to drive my goal to help any person who wishes to have a child by providing alternative options they may not have considered. Advances in medical treatments and society’s evolving attitudes toward non-traditional families are embraced at West Coast Fertility Centers.
