Friends Don’t let Friends do IVF

from Friends of Fertility Care Philadelphia

If you read the local newspapers such as the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Daily News or the Metro you may have seen this ad - a pair of adorable baby feet caressed by hands taking the shape of a heart with big bold letters at the top that announce Have you been told you need IVF?

Under the picture the text reads: Chances are you may qualify for one of our 8 IVF clinical research trials. Eligible patients can receive IVF at a discounted cost and/ or free IVF medications.

Let's take a closer look at this procedure and the medical industry that has developed to address the needs of infertile and subfertile couples.

In-Vitro Fertilization is just one of many procedures that doctors refer to as assistive reproductive technology (ART). The approach in the IVF clinic is to stimulate the ovaries so that they develop multiple follicles. They aspirate the ova (eggs) from the follicles and harvest them. Here’s a little known fact: this procedure can lead to a condition known as ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome that is sometimes fatal to women with a number of recorded deaths in the US.

The Friends of FertilityCare Philadelphia are a group of health care professionals and members of our community who wish to promote effective, integrated health care for women and couples.

 To that end, the Friends of FertilityCare are dedicated to making Creighton Model FertilityCare™ services and NaProTechnology known, respected and applied throughout the Greater Philadelphia region.

 The primary intention of the Friends of FertilityCare is to educate all people in the "good news" of Creighton Model FertilityCare™ System and NaProTechnology.  To learn more about this program, follow this link.
