Assisted reproduction can have unexpected results

Many people want to have biological children. And for any variety of reasons, assisted reproductive technology, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), is necessary for many women to become pregnant.

Your journey to parenthood may be more difficult than anticipated. You likely trust the medical professionals entrusted to help you bear children. However, before undergoing IVF procedures, you might want to familiarize yourself with the errors you could potentially experience.

What kind of errors can occur during IVF?

IVF treatments can cost more than $100,000. And there are no guaranteed results. Additionally, many things that could possibly go wrong during this process.

For example, can you imagine bringing a pregnancy to term, only to realize your infant is not biologically yours? What would you do if your embryos – your last hope of parenthood – were somehow destroyed accidentally? And how do you think you would respond if your twins had no genetic connection to you, your partner, or each other?

The potential errors you could experience while undergoing IVF include:

  • Wrong embryo
  • Improper embryo storage
  • Negligent genetic screening

Numerous IVF treatments result in the birth of a healthy baby. And while unfortunate errors may be uncommon within this loosely-regulated medical practice, you should be aware of some of the problems you could face.

Many parents attest that assisted reproduction can help you get pregnant. At the same time, remember that you may be eligible to receive financial compensation if the results of your planned pregnancy are unexpected.
