This is one of the first books we purchased on IVF and it provided exactly the information we were looking for. This book will be most useful for people who have only IVF as an option and want information on the details of the process and for older women who are trying to decide whether IVF is best for them. It explains the medications, why specific medications are used in each case, and the progression of the entire IVF process. It answered a million questions for us and made us feel better prepared for the process.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
