AceOfBase But I think there comes a time when women/couples decide to move on or change tact. I don't think people should be encouraged to flog a dead horse either, especially if it puts them into debt.

My heart goes out to those who have to due to I think mainly financial reasons where there's just no more $ for them to continue.
Or for others where the Donor path, for whatever reason, isn't a viable option for them, same for adoption. It's frucked for those people
I/we would've been one of those people if we hadn't of been successful. We almost were. Our last Cycle was our second last attempt.

Four Corners tonight - fertility treatments
I will say, I'm glad the guy who is the head of the ART council (or whatever that body is called) is not my doctor, he didn't inspire much confidence!

So, if the treatment causes "no harm" to the patient, and the patient is aware that the doctor believes said treatment is going to be futile, or of minimal benefit, and the patient gives full informed consent, then the answer is no, there are no professional obligations in place for doctors.
I do, however, believe there are ethical obligations. I think it is unethical to charge a patient for a treatment a doctor believes is almost certainly going to be futile, even if the patient has given informed financial consent. The doctor should not have to work for free, either.
In this instance, I personally think that the ethical requirements are for the treating doctor to refer the patient to another fertility clinic and Specialist.
This is not mandated by law, but I do believe it should be an ethical obligation.
If I was an IVF patient, it's what I would want from my doctor.
If I was an IVF doctor, it's what I would do.

Your so far from the truth!
I'm assuming you haven't been down the ivf path otherwise you wouldn't say such a stupid thing.
Do you know how long some people save for to be able to pay for ivf?
People go without and sacrifice alot often, to be able to have a chance to have what can't come naturally and what so many take for granted.
