Even though millions of American men and women experience infertility, myths and misperceptions about infertility are common.
In observation of National Infertility Awareness Week, 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.
