Initially a couple should thoroughly discuss their own reproductive goals and their decision to expand their family.
Once this decision is made, then the couple should create a plan to accomplish their goals.
If the couple runs into difficulty having children, then professional medical advice may be sought.
Infertility physicians and practices do vary enormously in terms of their focus of interest, flexibility, cost,
and ability to provide personalized care. It is possible that the same couple may receive completely different medical
management plans from different Infertility Clinics, so it is important to select a program that "fits" you.
The traditional approach to infertility solution initially focuses on diagnostic tests to identify problems with the
reproductive system and then specific treatment plans are developed to correct or bypass these problems.
The couple's unique goals and beliefs should be discussed and respected so that they can be taken into consideration
when planning treatments. The rationales for several possible reasonable treatments should also be discussed
along with relative costs so that the couple can participate in choosing a management plan that they are comfortable with.
A traditional approach discourages the use of one particular treatment, such as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), as a
"universal cure" or panacea for all infertility problems.
The NJ Center for Fertility and Reproductive Medicine is a traditional program that focuses on developing a management
plan that is effective and tailored to each patient couple. To learn more about this center and Dr. Eric Daiter,
