The value of online IVF bulletin boards

Lots of IVF patients get confused, because doctors don't have time to answer their questions . They turn to the internet to try to find answers, but this often makes a bad problem even worse, because there are so many unreliable commercial websites online, which are trying to sell their services. Sadly, Google is not intelligent enough to differentiate between bad information and the truth, and because it wants to make money, it often promotes the websites of bad clinics who pay Google a lot of money for advertising on GoogleAdwords.

The good news is there are lots of kind IVF patients online, who have a lot of information , and who are happy to share that expertise with you. I'd strongly encourage you to check out online patient bulletin boards and community forums, which are designed for IVF patients, so that you can talk to other IVF patients , and use the information they share , so you're in a better position to make well-informed decisions.

Of course, not all the people who post on these bulletin boards are reliable or well-informed, so you do need to be careful. While they are great for providing emotional  support, they are often not well-informed about the medical details of IVF. This is why you need to be picky and choosy about what you read – don’t accept everything as the gospel truth !

However, online IVF communities are usually helpful and  supportive , because they're very empathetic. They've been there and done that, which is they understand the problems you're going through . They have no ax to grind, and no commercial interest either, because these are patients, just like you are, who will tell you, based on their own personal experiences, what you can do in order to maximize your chance of getting pregnant.

So, please, reach out to them for emotional support, and they will be able to help you during your IVF journey, which is quite likely to be full of ups and downs !

You can download the IVF comic book free at and this will help you make sense of what you read on these forums !

Or you can send me your medical details by filling in the form at so that I can guide you !
