The World Health Organization issued a report this week showing approximately 17.5% of the adult population – roughly 1 in 6 worldwide – experience infertility. The statistics were roughly the same regardless of geographic area and economic status.
For those with the resources and access, egg donation, sperm donation, and surrogacy are available solutions. In the US, there are limited grants available through organizations such as Resolve.
Infertility is a disease of the male or female reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse
