Infertility affects about 12% of American women of reproductive age. The purpose of this study was to obtain a better understanding of the different factors that affect female infertility. With this knowledge, women can learn to reduce some of their negative lifestyle behaviors that help contribute to infertility and affect women throughout the nation.
The method used for this study included datasets that were obtained from the 2007 Adult California Health Interview Survey. The software used to analyze the datasets was the Statistical Package for the Society Sciences (SPSS), version 20.0. The factors that were found to have contributed to female infertility include age, racial and ethnic background, weight, tobacco use, and alcohol consumption. Finally, limitations, suggestions for plans of action, and recommendations are also discussed in this study.
