Every year thousands of women embark on IVF but only 25 per cent will result in a baby. The process is often a painful and emotionally draining rollercoaster to be on, even when there is a successful outcome, but how do you make the decision to stop if it's not working? And how do you come to terms with deciding to stop? Jane is in the Woman's Hour studio taking calls from listeners, and joined by Alison Murdoch, Professor of Reproductive Medicine at Newcastle Fertility Centre. Presenter: Jane Garvey Producer: Kirsty Starkey.
