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. Written by one of the top in vitro specialists in the country, In Vitro Fertilization, Third Edition presents a clearly written, complete guide to alternative means of conception. Now thoroughly updated and revised, this 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 new edition provides readers with the most accurate and current information available. Written in non-technical terminology, this book is the perfect reference for anyone facing this controversial and confusing procedure.
