Infertility

Update #1 Released to the ASRM Patient Management and Clinical Recommendations During The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The ASRM Task Force continues to emphasize that infertility is a disease, and infertility care is not elective. The treatment of infertility, as well as the treatment of many other critical diseases, including cancer treatment, other gynecologic surgery, and organ transplantation, are being postponed in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The use of the words “elective surgery” generally refers to surgery that can be delayed for a period of time without undue risk to the patient.

COVID-19 Alert for Patients

The following announcement was written by SART and RESOLVE with the approval of ASRM: The goal of this communication is to help give patients a clear understanding of the March 17 ASRM COVID-19 Task Force guidance.

Fertility Fraud: An Update

News about “fertility fraud” legislation and lawsuits is appearing with increasing frequency in national and international headlines. Currently, California, Indiana, and Texas have bills criminalizing fertility fraud.

Focus on Genetic Testing

Litigation involving mistakes in genetic testing outcomes or reports are not new, but the exponential increase in genetic testing in assisted reproductive technologies, including carrier screening, PGT, using mosaic embryos and the potential for gene-editing, has fueled new genetic-based lawsuits and variables.
