Racial minorities are known to have more severe disease and poorer outcomes throughout the US health care system. Accumulating evidence suggests that black race/ethnicity is associated with lower clinical pregnancy and live birthrates following assisted reproductive technology (ART) even after adjusting for many confounders. It is likely that some combination of genetic factors, environmental influences, socioeconomic status, and behavioral differences contributes to such disparities in ART outcomes.
