Fertility Clinic Errors Not Uncommon


Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Clinic Errors Could Change Lives Forever


I once was a victim of a fertility clinic error.

The lab tech got mixed up as to which sperm was which when I was undergoing inseminations. Fortunately, they were honest enough to admit it and cancel the procedure. But, according to this article, there are many mistakes which either go unnoticed or unreported. Read more:

From the article:

"Every day, someone somewhere in the UK is inadvertently messing up, but luckily the chances of it producing an obvious error of the 'black twins, white twins' type is low," he told the paper.

"It is not enough to bury our heads in the sand and to say, 'It's a one-off and won't happen again'," he added.

Dr Lee said he was aware of regular mistakes at IVF clinics across the country.

He went on: "I am aware of the wrong embryos being transferred to the wrong patients at several NHS units during the past 10 years.

"I have also confidentially been told about a number of cases where the wrong sperm were used to inseminate eggs."


The scientist said he also knew of cases where eggs were damaged and that eggs and embryos sometimes landed up in the wrong containers.

He demanded new standards for assessing the competence of staff specialising in the that particular field.

He also called for the establishment of independent quality control teams to oversee correct procedures were being adhered to.

Dr Lees said that the 27,000 UK couples who try for IVF treatment every year in the UK should be warned of possible errors.
