A retrospective cohort analysis of Monash IVF patients was conducted to identify trends in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) use amongst single women and lesbian couples after January 2010. A 102.8 increase in the utilisation of ART was observed amongst the single women group and a 248.8 increase in the lesbian couple population.
