Reviews

Pauline, for example, was able to get pregnant despite having PCOS. She describes Dr. Baker is a great professional who is attentive and helpful. Poojitha coincides with this description and also conceived thanks to the clinic.

However, there is also criticism from user P. The patient has the impression that it is all about business. The clinic performed laboratory services that actually weren't necessary for the user and thus, all insurance coverage was used up.

      What is meant with reciprocal IVF and who needs this?

      • Avatar de Romina Packan

        Hi Julie,

        Reciprocal IVF is a fertility treatment that was created for lesbian couples which allows both of them to actively participate in pregnancy. The eggs from one partner are inseminated with donor sperm, and the resulting embryo(s) transferred to the other partner, who will carry the pregnancy to term and give birth. Here is the full explanation of this type of in vitro fertilization: Partner Assisted Reproduction: How Does Reciprocal IVF Work?

        Hope this answers your question,

        Best regards
