Birds and Bees Campaign to Raise Awareness

Inrandom has recently been introduced to the Birds and Bees Campaign to Raise Awareness about Fertility Issues. I am 31 years old and have three children and I want more. My youngest son just turned 5 years old and is a special needs child so this is where I come into waiting on conceiving another child. I have always been in that frame of mind “It’s always easy getting pregnant”, and that’s not a good assumption to make. I’m getting older and I realize this. I have often wondered if my age was going to make a difference in conceiving or not. I feel young and healthy, but I didn’t realize that this really could be an issue for me. I pray that when it comes time and we are ready that everything goes smoothly, but if it doesn’t I also feel comfort in knowing that I have options out there to help me.
I have a close family member who is much younger than me and she recently just conceived her first child by going to a fertility doctor. Her and her husband had been trying for more than a year and each month a negative pregnancy test brought her disappointment because that wasn’t the way she planned for it to happen.
By visiting the Birds and Bees Campaign I found out that 1 out of 8 couples have issues conceiving a child. They encourage couples to visit a Reproductive Endocrinologist if they are unable to become pregnant after one year of regular, unprotected sex or after six months if the woman is over 35.

There are many reasons for a woman to wait to have a child; college, career or just having fun before settling down. At some point a woman becomes overwhelmed with wanting to become pregnant. Wanting that child so bad, being married and wanting to have a family addition, watching her friends have babies or just knowing that it is time for her. Not being able to conceive when you plan for it to can be one of the most devastating things to happen to a woman. I just want you to realize that you are not alone! This is more common than you may think and there are options out there for you so you can persue your dream of having a child.

Visit Birds & Bees: The Real Story they have a music video “Early Bird gets the Sperm”. This is a educational video that is funny and entertaining but also informing you of the issues that a lot of women experience while trying to conceive and how that may feel. She sings in the video about her desire to have a child; how she wants to stay up all night, she wants the stroller, she wants the dirty diapers and the throw up on her. It also talks about it on the husband’s side of conceiving too; of how it affects him and he is willing to do what ever she asks but now it’s time to seek help. Just an all around adorable video, the husband is the Bee and the wife is the Bird. It is not only informative about this subject, but set in a lighthearted way. I encourage you to definitely watch this video.

Now realizing that there are 1 out of every 8 couples out there who are having trouble conceiving a child. It is important that you help spread the word with us. That there is help, that they are not alone, that they don’t have to give up. You may not be the one experiencing these problems, but I bet you may know someone having difficulty conceiving. Send them to Birds & Bees: The Real Story and from there you can learn and explore options that may help and perhaps put a smile on their face.

The Birds & Bees Facebook page also provides you with other very helpful links such as Fertility Life Lines and Increase your Chances. By visiting Increase Your Chances.org there are more Birds & Bees videos for you to watch; “A year and a half.”, “Do I look pregnant to you?”, “Jane’s pregnant again.”, “I’m not sick Neil.” and “I had a window.”

Let’s join together now to help spread the word to those want-to-be parents in need and let’s help give them support! Share this post, share the love.
