Introduction

The Fertility Promise is a complete guide to the often emotional, expensive and confusing process of fertility treatment. The book offers clear explanations and advice to anyone undergoing fertility treatment (such as in vitro fertilization) or anyone seeking information about relevant treatment options. The information includes advice to both male and female patients, LGBT patients, IVF clinics, the IVF treatment process, the issues surrounding IVF ‘add-ons’, what it is really like to go through fertility treatment and what the future of IVF might look like. Covering every aspect of the topic, the book is an extremely important point of reference for all fertility patients as well as individuals who wish to broaden their perspective on fertility medicine and clinics. The Fertility Promise informs both general readers and empowers fertility patients who are looking for the correct treatment, enabling them to clearly understand the fertility treatment process and to ask appropriate and often revealing questions on the subject.

Audience: fertility and IVF patients, general readers interested in fertility medicine (including IVF treatment processes and clinics).
