5 MILLION WOMEN IN THE U.S. SUFFER FROM ENDOMETRIOSIS
(Purchase, NY) The first in a series of educational videos and fact sheets funded by Attain Fertility™ Centers (http://attainfertility.com/) and produced by The American Fertility Association http://theafa.org/) has recently been released. “Endometriosis: Questions to Ask Your Doctor When You Are Ready to Conceive” is rich with compelling and easy-to-understand information about the disease.
The 5-minute video features Dr. Drew Moffitt of Arizona Reproductive Medicine Specialists, a member of the Attain Fertility Centers network, who discusses endometriosis symptoms, causes and treatment options with the friendly tone of an intimate chat between doctor and patient.
Endometriosis: Questions to Ask Your Doctor When You Are Ready to Conceive is available on both organizations’ websites along with additional information on endometriosis.
“Five million women in the U.S. suffer from endometriosis, which is one of the leading causes of infertility. On average our network of clinics treats twice as many patients than the national average for those whose primary infertility diagnosis is endometriosis,” says Kim Hampton, RN, Director of Informatics at Attain Fertility Centers. “We’re proud to partner with the AFA to provide patients important information that can help them along their path to parenthood.”
The Attain Fertility-sponsored series of 20 videos and accompanying fact sheets are scheduled to be released throughout the year and will feature fertility experts from the Attain Fertility Centers who will address a variety of fertility-related topics.
