Have you been trying to have a baby for more than a year? Do you want to understand the complex processes involved in conception and beyond to see where things might be going wrong for you? Do you want to know what you can do to help yourself before going to the professionals? And what alternatives there are to IVF? And if you do opt for IVF, do you need guidance on how to give this the best chance of succeeding? Professor Harrison draws on his 36+ years of hands-on clinical, teaching and research experience to provide guidance on these key topics and more. Inspired by the needs of the very many couples he has assisted, he has put together a practical guide that comprehensively covers the investigation and management of infertility as it is or should be experienced today. The key facts are complemented by more detailed text for those couples who want an in-depth approach, and by the authors personal commentary, helping his readers to decide for themselves how far they wish to take their quest for a solution.
