Just as the
role of the doctor is extremely important in IVF treatment , so is the role of
the patient because it's ultimately a partnership. And we want patients who
have realistic expectations of the IVF treatment and understand that nothing
has 100% success rate, that they're going to have to be patient in order to
achieve success, and if they're lucky, yes, they will get pregnant the first
cycle but it may take two or three.
We want our
patients to be willing to trust us, to respect us as professionals, that we're
doing what's in their best interests. But equally importantly we don't want
them to just give the trust away and we're quite happy to earn it by being
transparent and open and sharing information with our patients. But they need
to understand enough about IVF to be able to appreciate the value of what we
are saying, so that this can then become a mutual partnership where both doctor
and patient respect and trust each other to high success rates.
and this will help you make better decisions !
