Dr. Sher is quite thorough in this book and I am very happy I bought it BEFORE I venture into IVF. He explains different reasons for infertility and in my case, gave a very good description of the immunological reasons for infertility.
I would definitely suggest others buy this book before they go into IVF. It is technical and helpful so you know what your doctor is talking about.
Very helpful book on our fertility journey as IVF consumers. I am much better informed now than when I first started this book. Thank you!
Great info on ivf especially if your doing it the first time or have done it. The website in the book also gave me good closure on ivf failures.
