When you embark on assisted reproductive treatment (ART) you may experience many different emotions, from joy and excitement to grief and disappointment. This can be emotionally and physically challenging, and at MP Fertility center we offer best fertility counselling service.
These counselling sessions are tailored to the type of fertility treatment you are undertaking. The discussions will help you to:
Ensure that you understand the medical advice that you have been given,
Understand the psychosocial and ethical implications of treatment, your rights and responsibilities and any legal considerations,
Consider and explore any issues that may impact on your treatment,
Clarify any information you are unsure about,
Explore areas of potential stress, and discuss strategies for managing these.
To help prepare for your initial counselling session, we recommend you consider aspects of your care, including:
What you would like to happen to gametes (eggs or sperm) that do not fertilise,
The implications of creating excess embryos from your treatment,
What you would like to happen to your embryos in the event of death of either partner.
Implications of having a donor-conceived child
Disclosure to the child and your family and friends.
At the end of your counselling session, your counsellor will ask you whether you are now ready to provide informed consent and will sign the Principal IVF Consent Form with you.
