Black Women & Infertility

Infertility affects at least 12 percent of all women up to the age of 44, and studies suggest Black women may be almost twice as likely to experience infertility as white women. Yet only about 8 percent of Black women between the ages of 25 and 44 seek medical help to get pregnant, compared to 15 percent of white women. It begs the question: Why isn't there more conversation about Black women and infertility?WomensHealthMag.com and OprahMag.com set out to answer that question.
