National Infertility Awareness Week

This week starts National Infertility Awareness week. asking us to help bust a myth. 

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
256.6- PCOS
(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.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your struggles. I have 3 miscarriages before I finally just recently had my daughter. Have you ever looked into holistic alternatives? It's what finally helped me.
