Predictors of infertility and costs of infertility treatments in Australia


Infertility is estimated to affect one in six Australian couples of reproductive age. It can be successfully treated with lifestyle changes and medical interventions. However, the evidence of the effect of some modifiable lifestyle-related and hormonal factors on infertility is inconclusive. There is also lack of knowledge on the expected full cost of medical treatment of infertility in Australia. We aim to improve fertility outcomes and access to care by producing information on modifiable predictors of infertility and costs of infertility treatment among Australian women to allow for more informed individual choice and policy-making.
