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.
Before hiring a clinic, everyone should ask all questions that pertain to the mistakes addressed above. You need to be your own health advocate.
