I have found that patients are intimidated by the concept of IVF, and think of it as being a very complex treatment. This is also partly because doctors love adding a lot of medical jargon such as ICSI, PGT, blastocyst transfer and vitrification to the treatment. Perhaps this is also because they can charge an arm and a leg for it, because the more complex patients think the treatment is , the more they can charge for it!
However, the basics of IVF are very simple ! All we are doing is helping to kick-start a pregnancy , so that we imitate in the test tube in the IVF lab what would normally happen in the bedroom in the fallopian tube for fertile couples for 5 days . Once we put the embryo back in the uterus , you then have a completely normal pregnancy !
Once you strip it down to the bare essentials, you will realise that IVF is a very straightforward treatment . Yes, it's true that you require an experienced expert clinic to achieve high success rates, but the basics are simple , so don't let a doctor confuse and bamboozle you !
What to find an IVF clinic which respects your time and intelligence ?
