Abstract

In a lower cost, equal-access-to-care setting, Hispanic use of assisted reproductive technology was less than half of what would have been expected based on patient demographics. Despite this use disparity, there were no significant differences between Hispanic and Caucasian women with regard to infertility diagnoses, assisted reproductive technology cycle parameters, clinical pregnancy rates, live birth rates, spontaneous abortion rates, and implantation rates.
