Infertility and Fertility Research Activities and Advances
Infertility affects both men and women and can stem from a number of causes. A variety of treatments for infertility are available, but they are not all effective for all individuals.
Addressing the issues related to infertility in both men and women is a central part of the NICHD mission. To this end, NICHD conducts and supports research on fertility, the causes of infertility, treatments to help individuals with infertility achieve pregnancy, and other topics.
