||This case-control study examined the association between occupational chemical and radiation exposures and risk of infertility (diagnosed medically). Increased risk factors among 281 infertile women (when compared with 216 fertile controls) were exposure to volatile organic solvents, chemical dusts, pesticides and video display terminals. The crude odds ratios of risk were 2 to 3 times higher in women exposed to these factors than in those not exposed.
