Lots of people probably don't do that - and are just guided by what their doctors tell them, and may not know anyone, in real life, or online, who has done IVF too, so have no one to talk to about it, no one to learn from, don't know the questions to ask, etc. Not everyone is a well-informed patient, able to make the best decisions all of the time.
    Great point, I agree we are probably not a good representation of the general IVF population. To start with we are here because we want to learn.

    I was part of a Facebook IVF group and the knowledge and understanding was very different. I left after someone tried to convince me "pregnyl is made from pregnant women's urine".

    I think you'll find Pregnyl is made using purified compounds derived from urine Last I heard, donated by Dutch women.

    Ovidrel is a recombinant product, so produced in a lab.

    Well there you go! I stand corrected I thought it was made in a lab.

    I only found out because it came up in conversation with a doctor during a Pregnyl shortage a few years ago It was one of those things that was obvious in hindsight, but I kind of wished I didn't know

    There were a few jokes at the time that I was, "taking the p1ss"

    I'm not sure how I feel knowing that. DH reacted more than I did.
