Trends In Infertility

ABOUT RMANJ’S 2016 TRENDS IN INFERTILITY

Life moves fast. This is a frequent discussion that doctors at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ) have with their patients. The younger generations are spending their 20’s getting their education and their 30’s working on their careers and traveling; before they know it, they are in their late 30’s or early 40’s and struggling to have a family. However, this doesn’t need to be the case. The new technologies available today allow for family planning to be done on their own time, they just need to know their options and plan ahead.

With nearly 7 million men and women facing infertility, we need to better understand how to reach individuals and how and where conversations around fertility are taking place. Unfortunately, our research has found that fertility conversations aren’t even started until it’s much too late. In fact, our findings show that only one in four women have ever spoken to their OB/GYN about fertility. As the oldest of the Millennial generation are already entering their mid-30’s, it is critical that these conversations start earlier and happen more frequently in order to be able to have children when they are ready.

Last year’s report, Infertility in America, outlined many common misconceptions about assisted reproductive technology (ART) that we have been working to overcome. In this year’s report: 2016 Trends in Infertility, we dive deeper into what people do and don’t know about fertility preservation, what their options are, and how open they are to using new technologies to assist in having a family. We also explore topics such as the impact of implanting one vs. multiple embryos, genetic testing, and the importance of success rates.

With these new insights and information, RMANJ will continue to work with other industry professionals to help ensure that we are working together to dispel myths and educate patients. We hope to provide them with the resources to make healthy decisions about their future and their options to ensure they can experience the joys of parenthood – on their own timeline.
