What should I do if I am about to start assisted reproduction treatment and I have symptoms of COVID-19 disease?

By Dr. Pascual Sánchez Martín.
Last Update: 03/17/2020

When we have a patient under treatment who develops the symptomatology of COVID-19, i.e. fever, cough and generalized discomfort, the wise thing to do would be to stop the fertility treatment treatment, in the same way as any other type of illness.

This is because an ill person who undergoes fertility treatment, when he or she is found to have fever and discomfort, will have worse results than if he or she were in full form.

It should be clarified that it is not that this patient cannot get pregnant, but the results will be worse. Therefore, there is no reason to treat a patient who is sick, whether it is due to COVID-19 or any other type of illness.
