Based on the gold-standard procedures and protocols developed at Boston IVF, this guide presents a coherent and structured approach to the infertile couple. The book includes all that gynecologists and REIs need to evaluate and treat infertility in both women and men. Both clinical and laboratory techniques are included. Also included is a chapter on preconception care as guidance for couples contemplating a pregnancy. New chapters for this revised and enlarged edition include sections on endometriosis, recurrent pregnancy loss, ethics, and quality management. The Boston IVF Protocols will be on a CD-ROM packaged with the book.
