Next Public Health Grand Rounds
Time for Public Health Action on Infertility
Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 1pm, EDT.
Thirty years ago family planning was synonymous with using contraception and the prevention of pregnancy. Today, that definition has changed immensely to recognize the importance of helping couples achieve pregnancy. In general, infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant (conceive) after one year of unprotected sex (6 months for women 35 or older). 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 it is often thought of as just a women’s condition, both men and women contribute to infertility, with 9% of U.S. men reporting male-related infertility. For couples experiencing difficulty conceiving, the effects of infertility can be devastating.
