Abstract: Objective: to characterize the population seeking infertility treatment at a public health service. Method: it was carried out a descriptive study with 101 men and 101 women who were consulting for the first time in a human reproduction outpatient clinic at an university hospital. A structured questionnaire was used to collect information on subjects' socioeconomic characteristics and infertility problem. Results: the most of the subjects were 25-35 years old, have at most medium level of scholarship, familiar per capita income between one to three minimum salaries, they declared they were married for more than five years and that they had the infertility problem for two years or more. A little less than half said they had never had treatment for infertility. There was a significant difference between men and women regarding age, previous marriage, paid work, previous infertility treatment, who had the infertility problem, and have children from a previous union. Conclusions: people come to the clinic after a long period of infertility. Specifically women are already at an age that often precludes admission for treatment in view of the standards of services. It is necessary to develop strategies to facilitate access to these services for reproductive rights. © 2013 Sociedade Brasileira de Reprodução Humana. Published by Elsevier Editora Ltda.
