Where you Live Can Make a Difference in your fertility care

Where you live can make a difference in your fertility care.

Infertility is a difficult journey given its many treatment obstacles: cost, length of time, physical & emotional drain, and more. In the United States, an additional obstacle may be your state: the state you live in can determine the quality of fertility care you receive and the alternative methods available to you.

Take this short fertility test to assess your pregnancy potential and to better understand how to enhance your fertility. It will give you valuable information about yourself.

Infertility is a difficult journey given its many treatment obstacles: cost, length of time, physical & emotional drain, and more. In the United States, an additional obstacle may be your state: the state you live in can determine the quality of fertility care you receive and the alternative methods available to you.

RESOLVE recently released it annual “Fertility Scorecard” - a map that grades states based on access to fertility resources. According to the map, the best states for those seeking fertility treatments are: Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. The worst states (those receiving an F grade) are Mississippi, Wyoming, and Alaska.

Each state was evaluated based on the following fertility care related factors:

  • Number of fertility specialists (doctors) in the state
  • Number of women in the state who have experienced physical difficulty in becoming or remaining pregnant (to live birth)
  • Whether or not the state law requires insurance coverage for fertility treatments (insurance mandate)
  • Number of peer-led RESOLVE support groups
