July 10, 2012 - Smutty Shout-Outs
Two years ago, I posted this shout-out for a fertility study being conducted at UBC with Dr Judith Daniluk. Please click here to read the research summary. 500 out of 3400 respondents were LaineyGossip readers. Thank you!
Dr Daniluk and her team found that women aren’t actually very aware that fertility declines with age and that treatments like IVF do not guarantee pregnancy. Dr Daniluk’s group is now working on a Canada-wide public education program to promote informed fertility decision-making by providing men and women with up-to-date reliable and accurate information. The website has just launched:
The goal is to empower people to make decisions armed with reliable info rather than myths and misconceptions. (Like, oh, I can get pregnant up until I'm 50 because all the celebs are doing it...)
This is a non-profit program. There is no advertising and no pharmaceuticals are involved. The site is funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.
