Why FACTS Exists: A Research Study and Giving Opportunity

Why FACTS Exists: A Research Study and Giving Opportunity

Multiple studies have shown that fertility-related knowledge among the general public and medical trainees is quite low. Knowledge gaps have been found to be especially large regarding the effect of age on fertility and the extent to which lifestyle affects one’s fertility. In this post, medical student Joi Spaulding reviews a study published in 2017 in “Fertility and Sterility” focused on low fertility awareness among reproductive-age women and medical trainees.

Our Month of Giving campaign focused on giving medical students The Gift of Knowledge ends this week. Your support will help FACTS as we seek to bring accurate, up-to-date evidence-based information about FABMs to more medical professionals, women, and couples, and we thank you in advance for your support!
