Home > Patients & Visitors > Health Library > Infertility: Setting Limits on Testing
Looking for a cause of
infertility can be a brief process or can become a
financially, emotionally, and physically demanding succession of tests and
procedures. Before you start infertility testing, take some time together to
talk about how far each of you is willing to go.
Ideally, your doctor will help you stop and assess your plan and
options at each step of the way. If you feel that you are being pushed to make
decisions without enough information or support from your doctor, consider
finding another one.
