Are we exploiting the infertile couple?

Academic Article


  • We hope that this article brings into focus some problems that merit consideration and debate. These thoughts come from a group of individuals who are actively engaged in reproductive endocrine/infertility practices with special interests ranging from ovulation induction to IVF to laser surgery. As a group, we practice in all parts of the country, and the problems mentioned are not restricted to any individual or region. We urge that all of us be candid with ourselves and our colleagues about what we can and cannot do for the infertile couple. We suggest that gynecologists ask themselves this question and proceed when the answer is affirmative: "Is this procedure really in the patient's best interest?"
