Fertility Negligence and IVF Malpractice Lawyers

In Vitro FertilizationGoing through fertility treatment is an emotionally fraught process, from invasive procedures to the hope of having a new child at the end of it all. However, fertility care services are in high demand, clinics are often extremely busy and serious errors aren’t unheard of. In fact, a major study indicated that one-in-five fertility clinics don’t operate up to the standard of a medical facility. If you suspect you’re the victim of such a mistake, you should reach out to medical malpractice attorneys.

A case of IVF malpractice can have far-reaching consequences. At a minimum, it means the stress and time involved in the procedures was a waste. To make matters worse, it could hurt your prospects of future pregnancy. No compensation could ever make up for these consequences, but you still deserve justice. That’s where the law firm of Console & Associates, P.C. comes into play. Our IVF malpractice lawyers are ready to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Treatments That Can Involve IVF Malpractice and Fertility Negligence

Fertility treatments such as IVF and IUI are valuable services that have helped many fulfill their dreams of becoming parents. However, many patients experience different types of fertility negligence, including but not limited to IVF malpractice. Many of these mistakes are completely preventable and have a deeply personal, negative impact upon the patients in question.

There are many techniques and procedures that fertility clinics use to promote conception, and each has its own risk factors. These include:

Fertility Medication

Most clinics begin fertility treatment with medication, since it’s the least invasive type of treatment. These drugs operate under many different brand names, but the key active ingredients are usually part of this list:

  • Clomiphene citrate
  • Gonadotropins
  • Metformin
  • Letrozole
  • Bromocriptine

Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)

An IUI increases the chance of fertilization by placing sperm directly inside the woman’s uterus. This may come from an anonymous donor or the woman’s partner, but it does help to increase the odds of conception considerably.,

In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Fertility doctors perform in-vitro fertilization by collecting an egg from the woman as well as sperm, and sending them to a laboratory. This laboratory fertilizes the egg and returns it, at which point the procedure continues with the egg going directly into the uterus. In most cases, a woman also needs to take medications to improve the odds of fertilization.


Sometimes, either member of a couple might have a medical condition that a clinic can correct with surgery. For women, this might take the form of clearing the fallopian tubes. Men’s fertility surgery also exists, and it might involve widening veins in the groin to facilitate sperm movement.

You are not alone.

The Most Common Examples of Fertility Negligence

Fertility treatment is a cutting edge field that often uses relatively new methods, which range from simple to highly complex and invasive. However, they all require a knowledgeable physician and frequently need advanced medical equipment. There’s very little room for error, and any error can be disastrous for the affected patient. Types of fertility negligence and IVF malpractice lawyers might be able to help you pursue justice for include:

  • Improper diagnosis and incorrect treatments
  • Failure to supply a patient with all the details of the medical procedure
  • Loss of reproductive material
  • Surgical scars that inhibit pregnancy
  • Mixing up fertilized embryos
  • IVF errors

Can I Sue for Reproductive Negligence?

No Fee PromiseFertility doctors and their clinics provide real medical care and need to be held to high standards accordingly. Negligent reproductive care can have serious, potentially permanent consequences for the affected patients. When reproductive care facilities aren’t held to the proper standards, failed treatments and negative consequences can become more common.

That said, treatment can sometimes fail without any malpractice involved. If you suspect that you’ve experienced reproductive negligence such as IVF malpractice, lawyers with experience in fertility cases can help. At the law firm of Console & Associates, P.C., we have the knowledge to navigate your case and help identify any possible signs of malpractice.
