Part of the problem with IVF treatment is that no matter how well we follow the process, we can never be sure about the outcome.

This is because even if we produce top quality embryos , and put them back in a perfectly receptive endometrium, pregnancy rates are never going to be 100% , because we can't control embryo implantation. Human reproduction is not very efficient - and this is true in the bedroom, and the clinic as well !

The problem is that patients can't judge by the process, because this happens inside the lab. They can only judge by outcome, and when the cycle fails, patients are understandably upset and angry.

This is why we spend so much time and energy trying to educate patients , and reminding them that IVF outcomes are not in a doctor's control !

This is why they need to understand as much as possible about the IVF process, so they can see if the doctor is following the process properly or not.

This is why we are such sticklers for following the right protocol, and emphasising openness and transparency.

This is the reason good IVF clinics give photos of embryos routinely to patients, so they can see the clinic has done what was in its control properly ! This creates trust and confidence, so patients have peace of mind they are getting the best possible medical care.


What to find an IVF clinic which respects your time and intelligence ?
