Black Women Have The Lowest Chances Of Successful IVF

Women of colour are less likely to have successful fertility treatment, with Black patients having the lowest chances of having a baby, according to a new report.

Overall birth rates from fertility treatment have increased in recent years, but Black patients aged 30-34 have an average rate of 23%, compared to 30% for mixed and white patients, new data from the fertility regulator HFEA shows.

The report, titled ‘Ethnic Diversity in Fertility Treatment’, also highlights that 31% of Black fertility patients have problems related to issues with their fallopian tubes, compared to only 18% of patients overall.

Black patients also start IVF almost two years later (36.4 years old) compared to the average patient at 34.6 years old.
