Counseling is the gateway of any medical treatment as it makes a connection between the clinician and the patient. The pain and anguish of being infertile for a quite long period leaves the patient with an unstable state of mind where no decisions can be taken upon easily. The counselor plays a vital role in making the patient understand the treatment plan and protocol being given according to his medical condition. Counselor also rules out the social and emotional stigma and thereby helps the patient to navigate through the fertility treatments with ease. The counselor provides a supportive environment, listens carefully, goes through the diagnostic reports and discusses the appropriate treatment plan and financial aspects. “Giving information is not enough”, advocating a balanced approach between the clinic and the patient by emphasizing all the aspects involved in an effective treatment is of utmost importance.
