National Infertility Awareness Week
Infertility is a disease. Just like heart disease or lung disease.
It has a group of medical codes all it's own. I've taken this list from a fellow blogger, A little Blog about Big Infertility! She had several of the same as me.
634) Spontaneous abortion (i/e miscarriage)
(640.0) Threatened abortion
(646.3) Habitual aborter
(649.5) Spotting complicating pregnancy
773.0- Rh- (Rh factor incompatibility
628.9- Infertility female of unspecified origin
(256) Ovarian dysfunction
I also need to add endometriosis, as well as MTHFR.
It's a list that defines me, and my inability to have a child.
