The case for going straight to IVF. - By Sarah E. Richards - Slate Magazine: "So it makes sense that some researchers are pushing to skip the middle step and go straight to IVF when the first-round effort fails. In a study presented last month at the annual meeting of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, doctors from Dartmouth Medical School and Boston IVF concluded that women who were fast-tracked to IVF got pregnant three months faster on average, and spent $10,000 less than those who went through the usual preliminaries. These kinds of data may be just what the doctor ordered to get more insurers to cover IVF treatments."
