National Fertility Awareness Week 2017

National Fertility Awareness Week is Monday 30 October- Sunday 5 November 2017.

It is your week; save the dates now and please join us in helping all individuals facing fertility issues.

National Fertility Awareness Week aims to raise awareness and change perceptions of fertility issues, as well as raising funds to help us provide much-needed support for the 1 in 6 couples, and others, in the UK who struggle with infertility. This year our fundraising ask is for  #100FertilityFaces to each try to raise £100 for Fertility Network UK. Please sign up today to be one of our #100FertilityFaces.

The key focus areas for this year will be:

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of IVF. Our #IVFis40 page reveals the history of IVF treatment, and shares stories over the years from patients, clinics, health profesionals and othersnurses, clinics and patients. Please send us your #IVFis40 story – email

Talking about fertility is one of the best ways to raise awareness, break taboos and shatter myths about being unable to have a baby. That’s why #TalkFertility is at the heart of National Fertility Awareness Week 2017. We want to get people talking about the real facts about fertility – and not the myths and misconceptions.

Men are half of the fertility equation, yet far too often their voices are not heard. Have a look at our #FertilityFellas page to find out what we are doing to support our #FertilityFellas.

After 40 years, it’s time for #IVFGoldStandard for all across the UK. Help us create an IVF Thunderclap to campaign for equitable access to NHS fertility treatment. Let’s speak together and we can make change happen.
