July 6, 2016

(The Guardian) – Nearly three-quarters of women undergoing fertility treatment will give birth within five years of starting the process, research has revealed. The study followed almost 20,000 Danish women undergoing fertility treatments including IVF and intrauterine insemination (IUI). The results revealed that more than half of the women had a baby within two years of starting treatment. Within three years, 65% of the women had given birth, with the figure rising to 71% within five years.
