How many people are affected by infertility?

Estimates are that one in six couples are affected by some degree of infertility. However, that number may be very misleading. Many couples opt to lead child-free lives rather than seek treatment for their infertility, and we believe they are rarely included in infertility estimates. Others suffer recurrent pregnancy losses which are, in a way, a form of infertility---and are not technically considered "infertile" because they are able to conceive.
INCIID is in the process of creating a survey designed to provide new insights about who is infertile, what kinds of infertility they are experiencing, what kinds of treatments have been successful for specific diagnoses, and much more. This survey will be conducted online, and is expected to be a source of important clinical information for practitioners as well as consumers.
