In observation of National Infertility Awareness WeekExternal Web Site Policy, the NICHD is sharing evidence-based answers to common questions about infertility:

  • What is infertility?
  • How many people have it?
  • How often is it traced to women or to men?
  • How do health conditions and behavior contribute to infertility?
  • How does age affect fertility?
  • What can individuals do to learn more?

Check out our infographic to learn the facts, and share it to spread the word.
