Abstract

To describe trends in the types of fertility-related medical services that women and/or their partners have received while trying to become pregnant, the author analyzed data from women aged 20-44 years who participated in the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth. Advice (74%) and infertility testing (59%) were the most common types of fertility-related services received, and of those who received infertility testing, 66% responded that both partners were tested. Nearly half of the study population reported receiving drugs to improve ovulation.
