As the coronavirus pandemic has worsened, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (A.S.R.M.) issued new guidelines on March 17, advising its more than 8,000 members to avoid starting new treatment cycles for I.V.F., IUI and egg freezing; consider canceling embryo transfers; and suspend all nonemergency surgeries. It made an exception for patients who have urgent needs.
The A.S.R.M. will re-evaluate its guidelines at the end of March at the latest. But given how quickly the coronavirus is spreading, it’s unclear if the recommendations will be reversed then.
