There is a unique set of circumstances affecting treatment for every patient involved in assisted reproduction, and those with pre-existing medical conditions, or those receiving medical therapies that may impact on the safety and success of their IVF treatment, are particularly challenging. Providing a concise but authoritative source of information to aid clinicians in this important field, this book covers management options for patients with a range of pre-existing diseases and conditions that can impact on the risk and outcomes of IVF treatment. Readily accessible and easy to use, the book also concludes with a helpful chapter on counselling patients who consistently fail to conceive. With expert contributions from leaders in the field, this is a much-needed, innovative resource for clinicians working in IVF and Infertility Units, and for physicians managing patients with systemic disease who are undergoing IVF.
