Infertility information for Black birthing individuals

There is evidence suggesting that Black women may be twice as likely as white women to have fertility problems but they are less likely to seek or receive treatment. Some of these reasons are biological, such as a higher incidence of uterine fibroids, which occur more frequently in Black women. Issues with fallopian tubes or even tubal ligation surgery, is more frequent among Black women. There are also systemic factors linked to racism such as lack of access to health care and other social determinants of health.
