In the United States, more than 430 clinics provide services to patients seeking to overcome infertility. CDC’s annual report on ART Clinic Success Rates is one tool used by consumers to identify clinics offering medical care and other services. These videos, prepared by CDC, can help consumers considering ART services. Whether you are hoping to become pregnant or seeking information to help a person with infertility, these videos present important information to help you.
The videos and materials focus on the important period before beginning care in an ART clinic—when a person or couple is in the process of selecting a clinic or provider. ART is just one option available to overcome infertility. Specialists in male and female reproductive endocrinology should be consulted to determine if your needs can be met using other forms of infertility care.
