When Should You Start Considering Fertility Treatment Options?

Thinking about Fertility Treatment Options? Approximately 12 percent of U.S. couples experience infertility, or the inability to conceive within one year of trying to conceive.

In addition, a woman’s hormone consistency must be normal and conducive to allowing the pregnancy to go to full term. Dozens of other conditions exist that could also lead to infertility. In fact, it is not easy to get pregnant! One Year Later and…

That has changed now, thanks to a law passed by Congress last October. Veterans can pursue fertility treatment using their veterans’ medical benefits. “We all say when someone serves their country, we are there for them when they come home,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who has fought the ban since 2012. “Certainly allowing them to fulfill their dream of having a family ought to be part of what’s there…
