Did you know that 12% of American women, ages 15-44, have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a baby to term? That is a high percentage but luckily we live in a society where modern medicine is available to us to help us overcome infertility. There is a substantial amount of different types of treatments and approaches and there are countless of happy parents who were lucky enough to try the various methods successfully and experience the joy of having a child of their own. Growing Generations is a company that helps people struggling with infertility by assisting them with gestational surrogacy, egg donation and parental education.
Growing Generations, founded in 1996, was the first surrogacy and egg donation agency that was devoted to serving the gay and lesbian community and now are working with families regardless of marital status and sexual orientation. Aside from surrogacy and egg donation, there is a variety of fertility treatments that are worth looking into, such as artificial insemination, surgery, fertility drugs and intrafallopian transfers.
For a closer look, Growing Generation has created a user-friendly infographic that illustrates the various treatments and provides answers to questions you may have. In the interactive infographic, you can click on several rooms and learn about the various types of treatments. Each room describes a different treatment and includes a timeline of how long it’s estimated for it to work (i.e. how long until you conceive). Also included are success rates, costs and more information. The rooms also have clickable “question mark” icons that give facts and tidbits about the specific treatment. This chart organizes all treatments in a way that allows you to get a clear idea of what would be right for you
