Starting Families - International Fertility Decision Making

Thank you for clicking on the link to complete the Fertility Decision-Making survey.

We are interested in understanding decision-making about parenting and fertility. The goal of our project is to better understand decision-making around fertility and efforts to become a parent. By fertility we mean the ability to conceive, that is, the ability of a woman to get pregnant and of a man to father a child. We are currently recruiting men and women (aged 18 years or older) who are married or living with a partner and actively trying to conceive for more than 6 months.
