Learning the ins and outs of IVF can often make you feel like you’re a stranger in a distant land. It can be so overwhelming at times that you find yourself simply nodding in agreement with your doctor, ultrasound tech, or nurse as if you understand anything it is they’re saying. While it’s practically second nature for the staff at your fertility center to know the many layers of these heavily involved fertility treatments – and while they are the experts – it’s good to arm yourself with knowledge so that you may make the best decisions, with your doctor, about your IVF options.
I wish I had these questions with me my first day at the fertility center, but, alas, I was an uninformed newbie. Lucky for you, though (and me too, really), I’ve quickly learned a thing or two about some very important questions that need to be asked right from the get-go.
After the jump, check out 9 Crucial Questions to Ask Your IVF Doctor. I hope these help you navigate your fertility journey!
