According to the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) 2002 National Survey on Family Growth, 1.2 million of the estimated 62 million women in their reproductive years – that's two percent – have had infertility-related medical appointments; 10% have received infertility services.
The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) reports that most infertility cases – 85%-90%, in fact – are treated with conventional medical therapies (medication or surgery.) But for some, in vitro fertilization and other Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) are needed to try and conceive.
