Infertility. Number of women attending assisted reproduction clinics increased

The number of women aged between 15 and 44 years old who attend infertility clinics varied from 9% in 1982 to 15% in 1995; in 2002 it fell to 12%, and remained at this level over the period 2006-2010. Although the percentage of women attending these clinics has increased during this time period, the number of births following assisted reproduction is low, less than 1%. In 2001, it was only 0.7% (Fertility and Sterility 105; 451-458, 2016).
