  • There are numerous side effects from the drugs, but one that seems to be grossly underestimated is mood swings.
  • Prepare yourself prior to treatment as it challenges your mental and emotional health and relationships.
  • Some states require counseling prior to starting IVF treatment. If your state doesn’t require, you should consider counseling regardless to help prepare yourself mentally and setup an ongoing support plan.
  • 71% of medically assisted fertility treatments fail CDC 2012. (This stat includes a combination of other treatments in addition to IVF).
  • The treatments are expensive. The price can vary, but average cost is $12,000 USD per cycle.
