Introduction: Infertility is one of the most important medical and social issues in all societies. Access to accurate and up-to-date statistics on infertility and related causes can be helpful in formulating policies to assist infertile couples and referring them to infertility and treatment centers and solving their problems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the epidemiological status of infertility in Boyer Ahmad city in 2018.
Methods: The present study is a descriptive-analytical study which was performed on 1536 couples who referred to all health centers in Boyer Ahmad city affiliated to Yasuj University of Medical Sciences. The data were collected by interview using a researcher-made questionnaire. The validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by content validity.
 Results: The mean (SD) age of the infertile women was 33.01 6. 6.38 and 38.45 8. 8.39 years in the present study. The prevalence of infertility in Boyer Ahmad was 8.13% with 44.06% primary infertility and 55.93% secondary infertility. The mean (SD) BMI of women was 27.93 5. 5.49, indicating that the majority of women were overweight. In primary infertility, 42.3% were female, 26.9% were mixed, 23.1% were male and 7.7% were idiopathic.
Conclusion: The prevalence of infertility in Boyer Ahmad city was lower than the national rate and previous studies. In the frequency distribution of infertility type, secondary infertility was more frequent. Regarding sampling based on SIB system and differences in infertility statistics in the province compared to Iran and the world, this finding may be due to the low number of infertile couples surveyed due to lack of information on infertile women in SIB system. . Therefore, further steps are recommended to lower the deficiencies of the SIB system in order to obtain accurate population statistics of infertile women. Providing more health facilities in government centers also seems to help.
