Infertility disrupts the lives of millions of couples in the U.S. The National Survey of Family Growth reports that from 2011 to 2015, 12.1% of women ages 15 to 44 years had impaired fecundity (ability to get pregnant or carry the pregnancy to term), and 6.7% of all married women in the same age group were unable to conceive despite a year of regular unprotected intercourse (infertile). Although an average infertile couple eventually achieves pregnancy, many struggle through rigorous treatments to do so, which is evident by the 7.3 million women between the ages of 15 to 44 who have used infertility services. This continuing education module describes causes of infertility, medical and surgical treatments, and the role nurses play.


The goal of this infertility continuing education module is to provide nurses and laboratory professionals with an overview of infertility and its evaluation. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe three factors that may contribute to the cause of infertility
  • Describe three interventions used to treat infertility
  • Identify resources for support and education needed by couples undergoing infertility treatment
Level of Instruction: Basic
