Abstract
The prevalence and type of infertility based on the WHO criteria were determined in a rural and semi-rural population in south-eastern Gabon. The prevalence rate of infertility in the rural population was 5.7% for primary infertility and 20.0% for secondary infertility. In the semi-rural area, 3.0 % suffered from primary infertility and 22.4 % from secondary infertility. Pregnancy wastage and home delivery were risk factors for secondary infertility. An evaluation of the WHO criteria for fertility surveys was made.
