To avoid unwanted or an excessive number of pregnancies, many fertile couples practice some form of contraception. Other couples who are unable to conceive invest significant time and resources in infertility management techniques in an effort to achieve pregnancy. Products used for female contraception include contraceptive drugs (e.g., film, foam, gel/cream, implantable, injectable, oral, patch-based, and suppository formulations) and contraceptive devices (e.g., cervical caps, diaphragms, intrauterine devices [IUDs], sponges, sterilization clips and rings, and vaginal rings); products used for infertility management include infertility drugs (e.g., clomiphene citrate, gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists and antagonists, human chorionic gonadotropins, human menopausal gonadotropins, and urofollitropins) and infertility catheters (e.g., those used for embryo transfer, hysterosalpingography [HSG] and hysterosonography, and intrauterine insemination [IUI]). In 2007, combined sales of female contraceptive and infertility management products totaled approximately $3.1 billion, with contraceptive drugs and devices accounting for 86.1% of sales and infertility drugs and catheters accounting for the remaining 13.9% of sales. Over the forecast period covered by this report, total sales are expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 4.5%, reaching approximately $3.5 billion in the year 2010.
