Infertility can pinch your pocket, especially if you are planning to have IVF treatment, or have already failed one cycle. Therefore, it is good news that many clinics throughout the country have started to offer free second opinions.

Failed IVF cycles always bring immense disappointment with them. This is why getting a second opinion is important. When you get a second opinion, you are able to understand what went wrong in the failed cycle. This way, you can be better prepared and will have more information about the choices that are in front of you.
