As assisted reproductive techniques have improved, I have found that the role of the Urologist has diminished in the treatment of infertile couples. The pressures of reproduction cause significant disturbances in these couples and many would benefit from counseling. A successful treatment program should include onsite nurse educators or counselors to support couples through these stressful investigations and procedures. This will increase the costs to prospective parents, but as a father of four can attest to, even in vitro fertilization is cheap compared with the expenditures for the next 18 years.
