Treatment for infertility is dependent on the cause(s) of infertility. There can be one or more reason(s) for a couple’s infertility. Examples of causes for infertility include male factor such as low sperm count or low motility, irregular ovulation, endometriosis or decreased ovarian reserve. Ovulation induction with medications may be appropriate for women with irregular cycles, while artificial insemination (IUI) may be needed for mild to moderate male factor infertility. Most infertility cases, 85-90%, are treated with conventional medical therapies such as medication or surgery. While vital for some patients, in vitro fertilization and similar treatments account for less than 3% of infertility services, and about (or approximately) seven hundredths of one present (0.07%) of U.S. health care cost.
