Infertility is somewhat of a taboo topic in the black community and infertility services have long focused on white overwhelmingly on white women. Studies suggest that Black women may be twice as likely as white women to have fertility problems but are far less likely to seek or receive infertility treatment.
According to the CDC, infertility is higher in black women than in white and is steadily increasing. Infertility has multiple causes including, Endometriosis, Uterine Fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes because of Pelvic inflammatory disease, and polycystic Ovary syndrome. Polycystic Ovary syndrome is the most common form of infertility in women and is caused by a hormone imbalance problem.
