Reproductive Health

Objectives—This report presents nationally representative estimates and
trends for infertility service use among women aged 15–44 and 25–44 in the
United States in 1982–2010. While greater detail on types of infertility service is
shown for women, basic data on types of infertility service use, as reported by
men aged 25–44, are also presented.
Methods—Data for this report come primarily from the 2006–2010 National
Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), consisting of 22,682 interviews with men and
women aged 15–44, conducted from June 2006 through June 2010. The response
rate for females in the 2006–2010 NSFG was 78%, and for males was 75%.
Selected trends are shown based on prior NSFG cycles.
