IVF scams never seem to end !


I am always impressed by how creative IVF clinics are - at cheating their patients !

The latest scam is " Biologically Active Peptide Concentrate or BAPC , to improve a thin uterine lining ! This is completely untested and unproven, but is being "sold" to patients as the latest and most advanced treatment !

It's scary how easy it is to take advantage of a gullible infertile patient's emotional vulnerability. All you need to do is to coin a clever new acronym, and start selling your product ! Pay the doctor a hefty kickback, and he'll be happy to "treat" his patients using your clever new innovation - even if it's no better than sterile water!

What can patients do to protect themselves ?
