Fertility Patients - Beware

I found an article about how women and couples should beware when undergoing fertility treatments:


Fertility Innovation or Exploitation?


Here is a short excerpt from The Washington Post article:

"...more than 1,000 women undergo in vitro fertilization procedures every week in this country, and countless others receive other kinds of fertility treatments. And at least some of the recent exciting breakthroughs in reproductive medicine, critics say, have been the result of ethically questionable practices, in which women served as subjects in ill-defined research projects or their eggs or embryos were sidetracked to laboratories without the donors' knowledge, to be used in experiments and eventually tossed in the garbage..."

If you plan to undergo fertility treatments, ask a lot of questions about success rates and exactly how your specimens will be used.

Which Fertilty Tests and Treatments Have Been Proven Effective?

I found this article which talks about which fertility tests and treatments have really been proven to be effective. This article is a few years old, but it was a real eye opener for me. The study to which the article refers was done by The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in the UK:

Infertility tests and therapies questioned

The article gives some good advice:

"When choosing an assisted conception unit, people should look at the success rates, cost and location, and ensure that they see a specialist doctor".

A Break From Infertility

Sometimes we all need to step back from the trials and tribulations of day to day life. We all have our struggles and it's easy to get so caught up in what we have or don't have that we forget to sit back and get "recentered".

I received an e-mail about this website with daily uplifting messages. I've only been on the mailing list a short time, but so far I've found it very helpful. Visit this link if you're interested and you may sign up to receive a daily "morning message":

Male Factor Infertility

It seems there is so much information on the web and elsewhere on female infertility, pregnancy and miscarriage. I'm surprised we don't see more about male infertility. Here is a link to Science Daily which gives some good information about male factor infertility since almost as many couples have problems on the male side rather than the female side. You can either read the transcript or watch the video:

Treating Severe Cases of Male Infertility

This video/transcript talks about everything from hormonal problems to blocked tubes (yes, men have tubes too!) to treatments for male factor infertility. Great Resource!
