What if my fertility clinic makes a mistake?

Fertility clinics make mistakes all the time, due to poor protocols, mislabeling, inadequate checking of embryos, equipment, laboratory staff. The mistakes can create huge problems for clients of the clinic. For example, the wrong embryo can be transferred, the wrong sperm can be used to fertilize eggs, the cryopreservation can fail causing eggs and embryos to thaw, the embryo can be dropped on the way to transfer and so much more. These mistakes and others can cause significant distress, anxiety and sadness, as well as substantial financial losses.

If you are going to have an MRI, ask whether or not you can achieve the required result without contrast.

Gadolinium is the usual contrast agent and it carries risks. If you have any kidney issues, diagnosed or undiagnosed, it can carry the risk of a condition known as NSF which can be debilitating. It also carries the risk of GDS, or gadolinium deposit syndrome.

The gadolinium does not necessarily clear the body after the MRI but can become deposited in various organs, including the brain, causing problems which can be permanent.

Be sure to be your own health advocate and ask the threshold question: do I need a contrast agent? Can we try without first?
