You may have an unresolved medical issue that is causing your infertility and may even prevent IVF from working too. This is why it is so important to get a full diagnosis of your infertility issues before embarking on the IVF process.
You may have an issue that with treatment may allow you to become pregnant naturally. On the other hand, with conclusive tests and a clear idea why you need it, IVF can offer you the chance to have children when you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do so.
