Fertility Awareness Week, organised by Fertility Network UK, is a chance to talk about the impact of infertility and also to get the knowledge you need to regain control.
Some people worry about their fertility for years before they seek help – but it could be that a quick blood test, semen analysis or some words of advice might be all that is required to reassure them or explain their options.
For those that have been actively trying for a baby, we know that 8 out of 10 couples will be successful within a year – so if you have been struggling for longer, now is the time to ask some questions.
To mark this special week we are hosting two free Fertility Fayres to enable people at all stages of their journey to gain advice. For those who want more in depth information we are offering a special half-price fertility testing offer and free consultations with a fertility nurse specialist

First birthday for IVF ‘miracle’- don’t wait to get fertility advice
Nicci had 3 IVF attempts and 2 miscarriages before finding joy with Gabriella - now celebrating her 4th birthday - and little Isabella.
Nicci explains how she coped with the fear of a further miscarriage, she would tell herself: ‘I’m pregnant but it doesn’t mean I’m having a baby.’ The two things were not connected in my mind. That was the only way I could get through it. If someone asked me when the baby was due I would shrug it off and change the subject."
Now she writes: "Thank you Bourn Hall! Gabriella turned 4 this month and we will be forever grateful. 😊
If you are struggling and would appreciate some support and coping tips then Bourn Hall has a fertility support group and offers free counselling more info bit.ly/FertSupport... See MoreSee Less
