What criteria should you consider before choosing a fertility clinic?
Infertility world wide, especially in Africa, is more often than not looked upon with distaste. In very many cases the female partner is thought to be the one with the issue preventing her from getting pregnant. Well, thanks to research we now know that the male factor also plays a significant role in this… as a matter of fact, research has shown that its 40% male factor, 40% female factor 10% combined factor and 10% unexplained factors. Having said that, it is imperative to state that infertility is a challenge that can be overcome.
We are well aware that couples go through varying stages before they eventually come to terms with the fact that they require a little help to achieve their dream, these phases range from self-denial to anger and eventually acceptance.
Once acceptance has been achieved, what criteria should you consider before choosing a fertility clinic?
You might want to consider the following:
- Years of experience.
- How long has the clinic been in existence?
- What’s its track record?
- What sort of quality management system do they have in place?
- What type of equipment do they use; is it state of the art, cutting edge technology?
- What about their personnel; are they professionals?
- What about their temperament are they warm and friendly?
These are but a few of the things to look out for when choosing a clinic.
