Why Don't Women Seek Infertility Help? Some Do

New data on infertility treatments from the CDC was just released. I've seen reports that headline less women seeking treatment and other reports headlining that more women are seeking treatment. Infertility is caused by a variety of conditions affecting the cervix, the uterus, the ovary itself, ovulation, and genetics; or in the males the semen and sperm count, and genetics. Sexuality is a factor, and those with performance issues may or may not have problems with fertility as well. Having a baby is even more complex with factors of job, finances, social situation, psychological readiness as well as literally just wanting another or your first child. The CDC report just out has discovered that significantly fewer women ages 15-44 are seeking help in treatment of infertility. About 17% overall seek treatment, and 20 used to seek treatment in 1995. In more narrower age ranges some treatments are actually increased. And What the next question is, why? Do women realize they have treatable medical conditions? Do we have less infertility through better use of contraception? Or is it just the sex and social factors that have made women and their partners to seek help? Ovulation treatments and treatments to open the fallopian tubes are the most commonly used services, so if you are trying for pregnancy and not successful, see your gyno to discuss what she recommends for you.
