National Infertility Awareness Week

National Infertility Awareness Week

Congratulations! Dr. Zaher Merhi was a featured guest on NBCLX which aired live on April 21, 2021.

In the segment entitled “It’s OK to Talk About Infertility. It Affects 1 in 8 Couples,” Dr. Merhi discussed Infertility Awareness Week, different treatments available for couples, and removing the stigma around infertility. Dr. Merhi stated, “When people who are famous are talking about their journey and they are not embarrassed or ashamed, it will break the stigma of infertility because a lot of people are scared about it…this is how we enhance the public knowledge about infertility. It’s not related to your race or gender or sexual orientation, it can happen to anybody.”

The segment credited Dr. Merhi as a OBGYN and a fertility expert.
