LAS VEGAS – In recognition of National Infertility Awareness Week from April 20 to 26, Red Rock Fertility will offer a special promotion to help women prepare for having children later in life. The leading Las Vegas fertility practice is offering $1,000 off egg-freezing services from April 20 through July 1 to assist women with planning ahead to achieve pregnancy. The full price of the service is $7,500. During the promotion, the price will total $6,500.
Oocyte Cryopreservation, also known as egg freezing, preserves a woman’s mature eggs following hormone stimulation. The process preserves women’s fertility in order to achieve pregnancy at an older age, providing an important option for women planning to wait until later in life to build a family. Older women have a lower chance of achieving pregnancy, as egg reserves decrease significantly with age. Women diagnosed with cancer also utilize the egg-freezing services to avoid losing their egg reserves as a side effect of treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
“Many women are now waiting until later in life to have children, and egg freezing provides an insurance plan for having children in the future,” said Dr. Eva Littman, founder and practice director of Red Rock Fertility. “Red Rock Fertility strives to provide women with healthy and innovative options for building families, and we encourage women to explore our egg-freezing services as an option to help them achieve pregnancy in the future.”
Red Rock Fertility will also offer free follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) blood tests during the promotion period. The clinic provides FSH blood tests to help evaluate the health of women’s reproductive systems and diagnose issues such as infertility.
National Infertility Awareness Week, founded by the National Infertility Association in 1989, aims to raise awareness about the disease of infertility and further encourage members of the public to understand their own reproductive health. Infertility, the inability to achieve pregnancy, can be caused by health issues among both men and women.
Infertility affects 7.3 million people in the U.S., or one in eight couples, according to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, a couple within the age range of 29 to 33 years old with a normal reproductive system has only a 20 to 25 percent chance of conceiving in any given month, according to the National Women’s Health Resource Center.
Red Rock Fertility offers a wide range of services to help with achieving pregnancy, including in vitro fertilization, intrauterine insemination, egg donation and gestational carriers. For more information about Red Rock Fertility’s services, call 702-262-0079.
