A Message from the AuthorFrom the Author

As treatment coordinator and fertility consultant, I soon noticed that potential patients were missing a crucial step in their treatment. And it was having a significant effect on their experience. I noted how most individuals arrived to the clinic feeling overwhelmed or departed feeling befuddled: nothing had adequately prepared them for the complex road ahead. Others reported squandering valuable time during the "research" phase or exceeding their budget owing to bad decisions. This online educational program is based on the real-life concerns expressed by the hundreds of people I've had the pleasure of working with throughout their journey. I'm certain that it will close this gap and put you on the right track whether you're contemplating assisted reproduction as a treatment or as a method to preserve your fertility.

This online educational program is based on concerns raised by hundreds of individuals I've had the pleasure of working with.

Frequent Questions
Do I need any special equipment for this online program?
You will need an internet connection and a device to connect to the course page in order to watch the video‑lessons. We offer mobile‑ and desktop‑access, so it could be a smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer, for example. There is no need for any special software, but make sure the audio is turned on. The 1‑on‑1 consultation will take place via a video-conferencing tool such as Zoom, Skype, or similar.
I have an urgent question but can't find your phone number; why?
We treat all inquiries with the utmost care, and we always want to ensure that the response you receive is well‑informed and relevant to you. As a result, we prefer to communicate solely in writing. We will respond within 24 business hours. However, and most importantly, please remember that this is not an emergency service: if you have any urgent questions about your current or future treatment, please contact your doctor, the local emergency service, or the nearest hospital as soon as possible.
When and how can I book my 1-on-1 consultation?
The 1‑on‑1 consultation is included in the online educational program and is available to alumni. This means that after completing the relevant course, you will be sent a link to schedule your consultation. Please be prepared to provide your contact information as the consultation will take place online using a video‑conferencing tool such as Zoom, Skype, or similar.
Can I have more than one 1-on-1 consultations?
We are confident that the self‑paced course and the 1‑on‑1 consultation will put you on the right path to begin your fertility journey knowledgeably. However, if you still have questions or need more preparation for your first visit, additional 1‑on‑1 consultations can be scheduled at the full rate of 120 EUR per consultation.
Are you affiliated with any fertility clinics?
Dandelion and the author of this educational program, Daniela C. Nataletu, are not affiliated with any fertility clinics. We believe that one of the program's strengths is its ability to present information in an objective, non-biased manner that eliminates the possibility of conflicts of interest. As a result, we will not make any clinic recommendations during the course or the 1‑on-1 consultation. We will, however, provide guidance in distinguishing between the selection factors that are important to you and assist you in confidently weighing your options.
Will taking this course guarantee the success of my procedure?
No. It will, however, improve your patient experience while saving you time and money that would otherwise be wasted during the "research" phase. As you will discover during this program, there are no magical solutions to fertility. The success of your procedure is determined by a number of factors, which we will discuss openly and help you set realistic expectations. Your medical team will be able to give you a more accurate picture of your prognosis later on.
Is this educational program meant to replace medical advice?
Definitely not. We strongly advise you to seek medical advice from your medical team. This educational program is meant to prepare you for your visit to the doctor, not replace it. Let’s put it this way: we stay between the moment when you realize you might be having problems conceiving – or that you might want to freeze your eggs – and the day you walk into the doctor's office. And it is from this position that we translate the cold medical jargon into layman's terms and provide you with the right questions – and the right amount of confidence – to make the most of each interaction with the clinic.
I want to share this program with my circle. Can I get a referral code?
We’re glad you asked! We believe that sharing is caring, and we hope to reach as many prospective patients as possible, right when they need it the most: at the beginning of their fertility journey. We do have an affiliate program, so please visit our dedicated page to find out how you can share the online educational program with your community, no matter how large or small.

Yes! You don’t want to be caught off guard. Understanding your hormonal values and their impact on how fertile you are can help spot any potential issues early on and help you plan ahead to preserve your fertility (e.g. egg freezing).

The test that measures your ovarian reserve (how fertile you are) is called AMH. It’s a blood test, and can be done on any day of your cycle. Make sure you’re off hormonal contraception so the results are reliable. Once available, AMH results need to be correlated with the rest of the reproductive hormones, as well as a transvaginal ultrasound.

If you decide to test your fertility, there are two options. One is to schedule a first consultation with a fertility clinic and request that all of these tests be performed there.

Alternatively, you may go straight to a lab and request the female reproductive test panel, then make an appointment with a fertility doctor to discuss your results and any next steps.

Whatever you choose, consider a session of patient education as the very first step of your journey: this will help you set realistic expectations and equip you with the right questions for the clinic and doctor.

If you are a couple who has actively tried to conceive (i.e. had unprotected sex) for 12 months without achieving pregnancy, it is time to see a fertility doctor.

They will recommend a set of blood tests for both partners to try figuring out where the problem is: with the woman (female infertility), with the man (male infertility), or with both (couple infertility). The results of these tests will inform the treatment approach.

Never delay the visit to a specialist: when it comes to fertility, time is precious, and you'd like to be proactive rather than wait for a miracle.

First and foremost: there is no such thing as a 100% success rate in fertility and IVF treatments. If you hear it, it's most likely just marketing.

The success rates reported by a clinic typically indicate the number of pregnancies as a proportion of the total number of embryo-transfers done in a year.

But they usually don’t distinguish between treatments using one's own eggs/sperm and treatments using donated eggs/sperm/embryos, or by patient characteristics: therefore, these percentages may not be relevant to your specific circumstance. So, ask them about the success rates they had with similar cases to yours: type of treatment, age range, any pre-existing conditions.

When doctors assess your case and make treatment recommendations, they might mention the expected success rate of each option. Make sure to clarify whether they mean per embryo-transfer, per cycle (until all embryos resulting from one stimulation cycles are transferred), or if they are considering multiple stimulation cycles. This will give you a better idea on what to expect.

Consider this: statistically, a healthy young couple has around a 70% probability of natural conception with each cycle. If the percentage you're given is close to this figure, you may feel positive about your chances.

The best time is: NOW. But take into account these factors...

AGE: You’re the most fertile in your 20s when both the quantity and quality of eggs are high. It is said that in your 20s, 80% of eggs are genetically healthy and 20% are unhealthy. The ratio reverses towards our 40s.

COST: Egg freezing is not cheap, averaging around 3000 Euros/cycle in Europe. It’s usually not covered by insurance. But some employers offer it as a benefit, so check with your company.

HEALTH: Some medical conditions (like endometriosis) or imminent aggressive treatments (like radiation) may make you consider egg freezing sooner. Talk to your doctor about it.

TIME: Although not very lengthy, the treatment is complex. Always make sure you have enough time to dedicate to the process. Being under a lot of stress or on the rush may impact the result.

Go through egg freezing when you feel ready.

Menopause, defined as the absence of menstrual cycle for 12 consecutive months, happens due to a normal decline of fertility attributed to age or can be caused by certain medical and/or genetic conditions.

Science and legal advancements allow women to use eggs from a donor in order to achieve pregnancy. This is called “IVF with donated eggs”.

Very simply put, this means a matching-donor will undergo hormonal stimulation and ovarian pickup, then her eggs will be fertilized with the sperm of your partner or a donor. The resulting embryo(s) will be transferred to your uterus, and you will be the one carrying the pregnancy to term.

Not all women are good candidates for IVF with donated eggs, and not all countries have a legal framework for the procedure. However, it has shined hope for many women in the past years who became mothers despite their fertility status.
