CDC Grand Rounds: Time for Public Health Action on Infertility
This session of Grand Rounds explored strategies associated with the detection, prevention, and management of infertility. In the United States, infertility is widespread and affects about 6% of married women 15–44 years of age. An additional 12% of women ages 15-44 suffer from impaired ability to get pregnant or carry a pregnancy to a live birth, a condition referred to as impaired fecundity. While there is increasing recognition of many factors affect fertility, there are still many opportunities to better understand and address population level issues that contribute to infertility in men and women. This session also addressed some of the clinical approaches to improving the safety and efficacy of infertility treatments in an effort to promote healthy pregnancy outcomes.
