Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess outcome at an infertility management center in Nigeria. METHODS: Diagnoses were made for 1948 consecutive couples following the World Health Organization guideline on the investigation of infertile couples, treatment was provided, and the couples were followed up over a 10-year period. RESULTS: The infertility was primary in 14.3\% and secondary in 85.7\% of cases. Treatment failed in 59.9\% and succeeded in 40.1\% of cases, resulting in pregnancy for 13.5\% of the couples with female infertility factors alone, 6.5\% of the couples with male infertility factors alone, and 3.6\% of those with both male and female factors. The pregnancy rate was 16.6\% for couples with idiopathic infertility. CONCLUSION: Pregnancy outcome was relatively poor because conventional treatments did not cure the most prevalent causes of infertility, and assisted reproductive technology is therefore advocated.
