The following links connect to sites that offer official, up-to-date and comprehensive information about the latest in infertility and assisted reproductive technologies.
American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) is a voluntary, non-profit organization devoted to advancing knowledge and expertise in reproductive medicine and biology. Physicians join ASRM as members and must demonstrate the high ethical principles of the medical profession, have an interest in reproductive medicine and biology, and adhere to the objectives of the Society. This site includes information on ASRM meetings, services for patients, health and media professionals, available literature and the ASRM Office of Government and Media Relations.
Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), along with The Centers for Disease Control, ASRM, and RESOLVE, publishes pregnancy success rates for fertility clinics in the United States. These reports are based on data collected by SART on the number and outcome of assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles performed at U.S. clinics. The goal of the report is to provide some of the information potential ART users need to make informed decisions about their care.
The National Infertility Association since 1974 has provided help to thousands of people experiencing infertility. RESOLVE’s mission is to provide timely, compassionate support and information through advocacy and public education to individuals who are experiencing infertility issues. The site provides information on their much-used helpline, fact sheets and literature, local support chapters, advocacy updates and more.
Path to Parenthood, formerly known as The American Infertility Association, is a national organization dedicated to assisting women and men facing decisions related to family building and reproductive health–from prevention and treatment to social and psychological concerns. The mission of Path to Parenthood is to serve as a lifetime resource for men and women needing reproductive information and support and to forward the causes of adoption and reproductive health through advocacy, education, awareness building and research funding.
Livestrong Fertility is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing reproductive information, support and hope to cancer patients whose medical treatments present the risk of infertility. In 1997, after Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular cancer, he created what is now known as Livestrong with the express purpose of helping fellow survivors and their families through and beyond a cancer diagnosis. In the years since, Livestrong has served millions of people affected by cancer through collaborative programs and direct support services that fill critical financial, emotional, physical and practical gaps in care. Though Lance is no longer involved with Livestrong, he remains the foundation’s single biggest donor. The progress he helped generate within the field of cancer survivorship stands as a lasting legacy.
