The field of reproductive technology witnessed enormous advances in the 1980s which have greatly altered the diagnosis and management of infertility. This book surveys the technological advances in infertility which the clinician must understand to optimize patient care. However, the same technologies that provide new hope for infertile couples generate increasingly complicated social concerns. Therefore, the second part of this volume explores the significant psychosocial, legal, and ethical issues which surround infertility. Gynecologists, general practitioners, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and nurses working with infertile couples will gain meaningful insight into the many aspects of current infertility treatment. Experts in medical law and ethics will also find this book to be fascinating reading.
