In the United States, among heterosexual women aged 15 to 49 years with no prior births, 19% are unable to get pregnant after one year of trying, which is also known as infertility.

The CDC sites our state has a 67.4 % fertility rate, in women ages 15 to 44.

According to the CDC, infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant after one year or longer of unprotected sex.

This is not just a problem among women.

Both men and women contribute to infertility.

Those who struggle with infertility are not alone here in our community.

 They can share their situation and gain support from others who have had similar experiences.

The group will gather tomorrow, August 15 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.

Group moderators are volunteers and are not mental health professionals.
