How does Embryo Implantation Herbal Support Work?
Embryo implantation Herbal Support comprised of a balanced combination of herbs containing medicinal qualities that helps:
1. Increasing chance of implantation
2. Relieving stress
3. Preventing weight gain."
This is a great example of how easy it is to take patients for a ride. Patients doing IVF are desperate and will clutch as straws. This site sells "natural herbs" - which means they are relatively inexpensive; and because they are "natural products", they don't have side effects. Most patients will be very happy to buy them to "try " them out - after all, how can they hurt ? Most IVF doctors will also not stop their patients from trying these, because they don't understand too much about herbs anyway - and if taking the herbs keeps the patient happy, then why not ?
The problem is that these products create false hope - and waste the patient's time and money. Fuzzy claims that they "increase implantation" or " improve egg quality" can never be proven or disproven. And for every 100 patients who take them, one will get pregnant ( though this may not be a result of the herbs - and could even be inspite of the herbs). However, this patient will be happy to provide a glowing testimonial - and this will end up creating a negative cycle, since no one will bother to document the failures.
