Format: Paperback
Conceptions & Misconception is truly the "must have" book for any couple faced with assisted reproduction. Whether you are just starting out and wondering if you should see your doctor about your difficulties conceiving or whether you have been at it for a while and have seen your fair share of doctors with little to show for your efforts, this book will offer you insight, information, perspective and most importantly, hope.
Drs. Wisot and Meldrum explain every aspect of the conception process both as it should be in nature as well as the way it often is with assistance from medicine. They provide detailed yet simple explanations of the various medications, procedures and protocols that one may encounter during their treatment. Most importantly, they provide patients with the knowledge necessary for them to be "informed consumers", able to sit down with their doctors and ask the intelligent, relevant and critical questions in order to arrive at the best course of action to meet their situations, needs and expectations. This book will provide you with the information to genuinely be partner in your treatment.
If you are not fortunate enough to live in the California area and be treated by these fine doctors, this is the next best thing!

I thought I would provide a brief review of Dr. Wisot and Dr. Meldrum's book "Conceptions & Misconceptions" for those of you wondering if it is worth purchasing. I have already read half of the book and I think it is wonderful. I wish I had this book about one year ago to help me through this confusing and difficult process. The content is very helpful and written in a way that makes the information less confusing and overwhelming. What I have found is that a lot of the questions are answered in the book. I do recommend it to everyone.

Format: Paperback
Doctors and clinical professors at the UCLA School of Medicine, Arthur L. Wisot and David R. Meldrum have expertly collaborated to create a comprehensive and thoroughly "reader friendly" 360-page introductory guide to In Vitro Fertilization and other assisted reprouction techniques. Intended especially to educate those considering such fertility procedures, Conceptions & Misconceptions covers common causes of infertility, tests that infertile couples seeking treatment need to undergo, the risks and preparations needed for multiple births, alternative treatments for infertility, and much more. A straightforward, down-to-earth "must-read" for any couple seeking information on this often difficult or painful subject.

This is a great book! I recommend it to anyone that is having any problems having a baby! I also recommend it to friends and family of people having problems having a baby. I think it would help them understand what the person is going through.

Although these are knowledgeable doctors in my area, I was disappointed when I realized the book is already 10 years old. The price was reflective of a new book and I am worried that 10 year old information is outdated when it comes to medical issues. I should have looked at the publish date before purchase!
