Opinion piece

More on IVF in Australia

Interesting article - although I do think that the author gives readers the (false) impression that IVF is cheap and pretty easy. Sure, things have changed since the early days but it is still an invasive procedure requiring a number of drugs and numerous blood tests (plus the actual egg pickup procedure). And she also suggests that the nasal spray is an easy option which is funny because a number of women (myself included) would much prefer the needle over the spray due to the side effects.
