9 Tips for Choosing a Fertility Clinic

DSC03016

1. The fertility clinic landscape is highly complex. It is hard to recognize what you don’t know about this new and unfamiliar world, but you need to quickly learn everything you need to know.

2. Fertility clinics vary dramatically in quality. Although no fertility clinic can offer you a guarantee of success, some have the power to maximize your potential for success. Your journey will be made much easier if you identify and use only top-performing clinics from the outset.

3. If you put yourself in the hands of an inferior fertility clinic, you will be at risk of suffering unnecessarily from a financial, emotional and physical perspective. It can even mean the difference between whether you will or will not ultimately have a baby.

4. To avoid spinning your wheels on the wrong track, learn about all of the factors that should govern your fertility clinic choice so that you will be better equipped to choose one in an intelligent, thoughtful and fully informed manner.

5. Because of recent advances in in-vitro fertilization, fertility clinic success rates have never been more difficult to interpret than they are today. You must take the time to learn about the many subtleties and nuances that are not apparent on the surface of the numbers.

6. Fertility clinics do not provide treatment in one consistent manner. In fact, some clinics take an approach that is not in step with the most recent advances. Be sure to become informed about how (and why) treatment approaches vary clinic to clinic and about the approach that is most appropriate for your situation.

7. Many fertility clinics engage in aggressive marketing campaigns designed to seduce desperate and vulnerable patients. Avoid being lured in by these campaigns and make your fertility clinic choice based on deep knowledge and understanding.

8. A discerning fertility clinic choice requires intense research, strong critical analysis skills and an insightful comparative analysis of options. Researching fertility clinics in a thorough manner is a time consuming process. Turn to experts for help to avoid spending precious time within your reproductive window conducting research.

9. Reliable information needed to make a logical and well-reasoned fertility clinic choice is hard to come by for those who are not “insiders” in the world of reproductive medicine. Identify neutral “insiders” who you can safely rely on to provide high quality and reliable information.

The world of reproductive medicine has always been filled with conflicting opinions and fascinating debate. One debate that is at the forefront at the moment relates to the subject of pre-implantation genetic screening, also referred to as PGS. PGS involves the analysis of cells of the embryo to ensure that the embryo has 46 chromosomes and not a different number. It was developed to enable embryologists to identify chromosomally normal (euploid) embryos for uterine transfer in an IVF cycle because only they can become healthy babies.

Points of view vary clinic to clinic about the appropriate usage of PGS in the IVF process. The lack of a consistent viewpoint has been a source of stress, complicating the decision-making process for the patient using IVF, which is already fraught with anxiety. Read More
