5 Beneficial Websites To Consider When Receiving Fertility Treatment

5 Beneficial Websites To Consider When Receiving Fertility Treatment

If you are about to start fertility treatment or are undergoing fertility treatment, you may benefit from these 5 online resources.

Experiencing infertility can be lonely and confusing. When you are exploring treatment options or receiving fertility treatment, having access to the best evidence-based knowledge, expertise, and support can make the difference between moving forward with dignity and confidence and suffering paralyzing fear and frustration.

There are a myriad of websites, social networks, news groups, forums, message boards, blogs, and other internet-based resources that can be used for obtaining information about fertility treatments. While these types of resources can be a source of great comfort and helpful information, they can also be time consuming and lead to misinformation. Before reading online about fertility treatment-related information, here are some questions you may want to consider:

  1. Who is the source of information that is providing you the information?
  2. Are they upfront about potential costs associated to you?
  3. Are they transparent about all their team members?
  4. Do they provide references and resources that you can check out?
  5. Do they fully disclose their own sponsorships and/or commercial funding?
  6. Is the information you are accessing dated so you can tell how current it is?
  7. Does the resource present you with various viewpoints on the topic so that you can make the best decision for you and your partner?
  8. Can the information be personalized to your individual situation, wish, and need?
  9. Is the service listed in reputable directories? One such directory can be found here.

Here are five online websites that provide helpful information, support and/or fertility service that will complement your upcoming or ongoing fertility treatment:

1.Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology

Finally, the site also provides you with the fertility treatment success rate information for your age group observed in that particular fertility clinic.
