This is the essential reference book for couples diagnosed with infertility. It covers everything from understanding your reproductive cycle to what your options are if a biological child is not possible. The causes of infertility — both male and female — are examined, treatment options are explained, and a wide range of support services is included. Where appropriate, chapters include focus boxes written by a leading expert in the relevant field.

Importantly, THE INFERTILITY HANDBOOK is written clearly and simply with the sensitivity and knowledge of a person who has been there. It aims to provide options at a time when people may feel they have none and understanding at a time when people can often feel cut off from their normal support network.

This is the essential reference for couples faced with infertility. Here you will find options, answers and, above all, hope.

The areas covered include: understanding your reproductive cycle; the causes of infertility in both men and women; assisted reproductive technologies (IVF and FET); complementary and alternative therapies; the emotional aspects of experiencing infertility; adoption and surrogacy; and, legal considerations.

Throughout, experts in various fields provide additional insight into the many aspects of infertility, while comprehensive reference and resource sections list organisations, books, websites and products that will assist you on your journey towards parenthood.

Written clearly and simply with the sensitivity and knowledge of a person who has been there, 'The Infertility Handbook' provides options and understanding at a time when couples can often feel cut off from their normal support network.
