Jumping the hurdles of IVF

You come across a range of health-care professionals on your way through IVF treatment and in Chapter 4 I introduce you to the many members of your IVF team. It's very important that you feel you receive the best possible care, so I also discuss how you can ensure that the members of your IVF team respond to your needs — and what you can do if they don't.

IVF is like a set of hurdles that you have to jump in order to get to the finishing line — hopefully with a baby in your arms! In Chapter 5 I describe the obstacle course, what it takes to get over those hurdles and what may go wrong along the way.

IVF is often likened to an emotional roller-coaster ride. In Chapter 9 I explain how the ups and downs you go through during an IVF treatment cycle can throw you off course and how you can get back on track again.

If you're interested in technical details, I explain the actions and possible side effects of the drugs you take for IVF in Chapter 6, what happens in the IVF lab in Chapter 7 and how you can estimate your chances of having a baby with IVF in Chapter 8.
