How to deal with an unsuccessful fertility treatment

Assisted reproduction treatments have high success rates, but these rates are only statistical data. The circumstances of each person and each embryo are different in each attempt and treatment. Therefore, it is difficult to predict how the process will go exactly.

Embryo donation answers to frequent questions

The reception of donated embryos is an assisted reproduction treatment that has many advantages: it is much faster and more comfortable, it saves intermediate diagnostic tests, and its cost is lower than that of most of the usual treatments, such as in vitro fertilization or egg donation. But it is an option that is rarely considered at first, since most women and couples who wish to be mothers and fathers want, if possible, to use their own eggs and sperm. However, in many cases it is the best option, or even the only one. It is normally indicated in...
