The biggest mistake which IVF patients make in India is
blindly trusting the IVF doctor
Itâs extremely important that you find a doctor you can
trust â and itâs equally that you make sure that he earns that trust ! Trust is
too important to be gifted to anyone .
Sadly, the government does a poor job of regulating IVF clinics, which means there are many fly by night operators who just want to exploit patients. And it's easy to do this because infertile patients are ignorant and vulnerable.
The trust equation , as defined by David Maister, says that
the doctor must prove that he is reliable and credible â and you need to check
this before signing up for your treatment.
Is he willing to share information ? Is he upfront , open and
transparent ? Or does he make a lot of promises because he wants to sell you on
doing IVF treatment at his test tube baby clinic ? Is it a lot of hot air he is
promising , or is he respectful , and makes sure that you have realistic expectations
about what IVF treatment can offer you ?
Test tube baby treatment is expensive, and you have to be
very careful about whom you select for as your IVF doctor.
The single question which all patients should ask their IVF
doctors is â Do you do blastocyst transfers routinely ? and do you provide
patients of photos of their embryos routinely ?
All good clinics do this routinely â and if you find out
that the doctor doesnât, then this is a red flag, and you should find a better
clinic before burning your hard earned money !
