This is a question-and-answer textbook on assisted reproductive technology (ART) for referring physicians and their patients. As the authors say, The rate of change of the new techniques used in assisted reproduction makes it difficult to keep referring doctors and their patients informed, all of whom may be obtaining most or all of their information from the media or from other patients or friends. This book addresses the deficiencies in the knowledge of the referring physician. A question-and-answer format is used to enable physicians' and patients' questions to be answered easily.The book contains over 80 of the most frequently asked and most important questions on ART with answers that are detailed, clear, and reliable.
