About this title


From a pioneer in the treatment of infertility comes groundbreaking medical information plus compassionate advice in the single most comprehensive and authoritative guide to overcoming infertility.

If you are one of the 5.3 million couples suffering from infertility, Dr. Richard Marrs' Fertility Book is the source you've been waiting for.  In clear, concise language, Dr. Marrs, a pioneer in assisted reproductive technologies who currently heads one of the world's most prominent clinical fertility institutes, provides everything you need to know about the medical, emotional, financial, and practical aspects of getting pregnant, including:

* The most common--and uncommon--causes of infertility.
* How to find the right doctor with enough experience to save you time...and money.
* What fertility drugs can do for you, and the risks involved.
* The latest cutting-edge advances in infertility treatment--from in vitro fertilization through GIFT, ZIFT, sperm manipulation, and immunological therapy--how much they cost, and which one is right for you.
* The likelihood of multiple births resulting from different procedures.

Dr. Marrs also takes you beyond the medical.  Having spent hundreds of thousands of hours treating infertile patients, he understands the important role psychological well-being plays in successful treatment.  Co-authors Lisa Friedman Bloch and Kathy Kirtland Silverman bring a firsthand knowledge of what it means for patients to cope with the sometimes devastating emotional issues that are commonly faced, including:

* Dealing with your feelings of shock, denial, loss of control, anger, and depression.
* Recognizing that infertility can raise fears about your virility or femininity and impact your sexual relationship.
* Anticipating the pressures you may have from your job, parents, family members, and friends.

This important book will also help you prepare for the financial aspects of treatment by comparing costs at various clinics throughout the country.  And it gives you a look ahead at new technologies being tested for the future. Teeming with critical information, authoritative advice, and compassionate guidance, Dr. Richard Marrs' Fertility Book breaks extraordinary new ground.  In an era when many couples have been misled by fertility "experts" who don't have the necessary experience or knowledge--losing precious time and money--this book will help you get the most out of a complex and confusing medical system and become an informed and active participant in your own fertility treatment.

From the Publisher:

"The only handbook you will ever need about infertility. Dr. Marrs and his colleagues have done a masterful job of weaving detailed technical passages with poignant personal accounts of the experiences of their patients."
--LeVar Burton, Actor

"Having been a scientist in reproductive medicine for the past 30 years, I can sometimes recognize truly innovative advances as they are happening. It is my privilege to proclaim that [Dr. Marrs has] written America's handbook for assisted conception. It is a landmark contribution for the ages."
--Gary D. Hodgen, Ph.D., President, The Jones Institute Foundation

"In fertility, we're talking about dreams. A couple's most deeply-held and most precious dreams. What Dr. Marrs has done here is to tell you honestly and clearly how these dreams can come to be a reality."
--David Crosby, Crosby, Stills & Nash

"As one who has worked in the field of infertility from the very beginning, I know how hard it is for doctors to keep up with all the development in IVF technology. How much more difficult it must be for our patients to come to terms with what their treatment may embrace. There have been quite a few excellent texts written in an effort to provide such information, but Dr. Richard Marrs' Fertility Book is the most comprehensive contribution to this field."
--Ian Johnston, M.D., Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology, East Melbourne, Australia

"It is truly the only book of its kind, and should become the `infertility bible.' [Dr. Marrs has] covered all aspects of the infertility experience, yet it isn't dry or hard to read. Good work!"
--Jo Beth Williams, Actress
