During 2015–2019, among women aged 25–44 years, 14.3% had ever used any infertility services, down from 16.8% during 2006–2010.

The percentage who had ever used medical help to get pregnant declined from 12.5% during 2006–2010 to 10.5% during 2015–2019, but the difference in the percentage ever using medical help to prevent pregnancy loss (6.8% during 2006–2010 and 5.8% during 2015–2019) was not statistically significant.

During both periods, a higher percentage had ever received medical help to get pregnant than had ever received medical help to prevent pregnancy loss.
