Benefits and risks of infertility treatment
The potential risks of infertility treatments vary depending on the specific treatment(s) your doctor recommends. The greatest benefit of successful infertility treatments is conception and pregnancy that leads to biological children. Deciding whether infertility treatment is right for you is a choice that couples make together with the help of their doctor.
