This is the essential reference book for couples diagnosed with infertility. It covers everything from understanding your reproductive cycle to what your options are if a biological child is not possible. The causes of infertility - both male and female - are examined, treatment options are explained, and a wide range of support services is included. Each chapter contains an introduction written by a leading expert in the field. Importantly, 'The Infertility Handbook' is written clearly and simply with the sensitivity and knowledge of a person who has been there. It aims to provide options at a time when people may feel they have none and understanding at a time when people can often feel cut off from their normal support network.
