: I watched the segment with tears streaming down my face while holding my son, a miracle conceived with drugs bought off the internet. I so related to Debi, as many of us can. Why then did Nancy Schneiderman have to go and turn a positive outcome into a potentional horror story, as we all know is not the case.
: How many women here will buy drugs and use them without doctor supervision? What would we do with them, our own IVF procedures??? They also failed to point out that these drugs are in sealed glass ampules to be broken by the consumer and are in original packaging. They compared this to giving a narcotic pill to someone, hardly the same!!!
: Shame on Dr. Rosenwaks for not addressing the high cost of the drugs and why women would have to resort to alternate means of obtaining them. I know he has had many patients get drugs this way and he knows they work!!!
: Unfortunately, all this story did was to instill fear and once again make the public think that women trying so desperately to have a baby are crazy!!!

I also thought her comments were horrendous-it reminded me of an insensitive comment by my husband's aunt, after my first m/c, when she told me maybe I just wasn't meant to have children. Now here on national TV, a prominant TV doctor is telling millions of women the same thing!!! What was missing from this segment was a compassionate doctor like Dr. Barad, who could have added a more human touch and understanding to back up Debi's story.
