Description from

Joseph J. Rovinsky, M.D., Director of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sound Shore Medical Center of Westchester 

"I think this is a breakthrough publication about the advances in assisted reproductive technology...This is the first time, to my knowledge, that comparative costs have been detailed and the complex and ever-changing relationship to third-party payor for health care has been approached."

Book Description 

Too often, infertile couples are treated as medical patients, subject to costly and invasive tests, procedures, and even surgery in an effort to diagnose and then treat whatever is keeping them from conceiving. But infertility is not a disease. It is the natural process of conception gone awry...and conception is far too complex to diagnose and treat with any reliability.

The Pregnancy Prescription presents a step-by-step plan for overcoming infertility by augmenting the natural process of conception and using advanced reproductive techniques to bypass those stages of the reproductive system that appear most likely to be malfunctioning.

The success-oriented approach described in The Pregnancy Prescription can help resolve your infertility as quickly, safely, and cost-effectively as possible, no matter where you are in your quest for a pregnancy.

"...examines the differences between success-oriented and diagnosis-oriented infertility treatments...outlines Melnick's "pregnancy prescription", which incorporates success-oriented techniques."

From the Publisher

Here is a unique approach to helping couples resolve their infertility as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. This book argues that in most cases whatever problems are keeping a couple from conceiving eventually prove impossible to diagnose and/or treat with any degree of reliability. Therefore, it is more efficient to bypass, rather than treat these problems. Using this approach, advanced reproductive techniques such as in vitro fertilization are recommended much earlier in the process. A discussion of the controversial aspects of infertility treatment, the array of fertility drugs, and the costs involved is especially helpful.
