Details

Approximately four million couples in the U.S. face infertility. For about 25 percent of them, in vitro fertilization is the best option for conception, yet many couples remain uninformed about the procedure. As of 2004, about 250,000 children were successfully born through in vitro fertilization, and this number is rising steadily.

Written by one of the top specialists in the country, In Vitro Fertilization, Third Edition presents a clearly written, complete guide to alternative means of conception. This revised book discusses everything one needs to know about IVF, including how to find and choose the best in vitro programs, what to expect as you go through the process, and what your chances are of achieving a successful pregnancy. Designed to prepare couples for the complex and emotional process of IVF, this resource provides readers with accurate and reliable information. Written in non-technical terminology, this book is the perfect reference for anyone facing this controversial and confusing procedure.

Key revisions include:

  • A new chapter discussing conditions that negatively affect fertility, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, Asherman's syndrome, and polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Expanded coverage of third-party parenting options
  • Expanded discussion of the ethical implications of fertility technology, including cloning and embryo/blastocyst freezing
  • More detailed discussion of ovulation, with new material on Letrozole Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE) and Testicular Sperm Aspiration (TESA).
