Infertility Overview

Infertility: Infertility in Women

In the female reproductive system, infertility may be caused by a range of abnormalities of the ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, and endocrine system.


Recent data from the National Survey of Family Growth indicate that among nulliparous women, the percentage experiencing infertility increases substantially by age: from 7-9% among those below 34 years of age; to 25% among those 35-39 years of age; to 30% among those 40-44 years of age.
