Coming from a family with members who have served and are veterans, this story in Men’s Health (http://www.menshealth.com/health/derick-carver) was of specific interest to me. Army Captain Mr. Derick Carver was hit by an IED while serving our country, the results, among many other traumatic wounds to his body, was also infertility at the young age of 28.  We know many insurance companies only cover IVF in about 14 states and even then the guidelines are very tight. The American Urological Association Foundation has submitted a bill HR 1612 that will help with urotrauma and fertility issues stemming from trauma to soldier’s.
