In spite of the fact that almost eighty percent of all IVF cycles are unsuccessful, the dominant representations of the technology are of its success. Based on extensive interviews with women and couples who have undergone IVF unsuccessfully and who have since stopped treatment, and taking an overtly feminist approach, the book explores the ways in which IVF failure is experienced and accounted for. The book argues that IVF failure and the end of treatment have to be carefully managed over time in order to construct the self as 'normal' in the profoundly gendered context of reproductive normativity. Treatment failure is identified in the book not only as a central, but largely excluded, aspect of the experience of IVF, but also of a proliferating range of new, more controversial reproductive and genetic technologies.

Heather, and her husband, Mark, want to share their personal story of infertility, and offer guidance and support for others who face failure during IVF, or find themselves sitting at the infertility crossroads. It can feel at times a very sad and isolated place to be. During their personal journey, they have faced all three roads: IVF, adoption and childlessness.Heather and Mark find themselves facing some hard decisions after discovering that they have fertility issues. They quickly find themselves turning to the NHS for support as they begin their quest to have a baby. However, they soon realise that NHS support is limited. They begin tests with the NHS and are shocked at the results which lead to years of struggles with infertility with lots of twists and turns along the way. Heather and Mark together faced 5 rounds of IVF, use of donor eggs, IVF treatment abroad, issues with sperm quality, endometriosis, adenomyosis, premature ovarian insufficiency and laparoscopy surgery. The book ends by giving others advice on deciding how and when to move on in their journey when couples find themselves at the infertility crossroads. Heather shares her own current thoughts on being childless and her hopes for the future, and remaining positive, and gives guidance to others on how to navigate their own feelings.

This book is written for the general gynaecologist. It gives practical instructions, with clear illustrations, in the non-specialist management of infertility. This source provides up-to-date information for a field of study which is undergoing rapid technological change. It explains basic investigations to exclude obvious causes of infertility: hormones, laparoscopy, and basic treatment: ovulation induction. The book also describes the techniques of assisted conception available in specialist centers, demystifying an acronym-ridden and fast-moving subject for the benefit of the general gynaecologist who may need to refer patients for specialist treatment. Because infertility is a "sensitive" area, the book addresses counselling and support
