One Couple’s Heartbreaking Bravelle Recall Story September 13, 2016. By Gordon Gibb.
Victoria, BC: It’s hard enough starting off in life lining up a career, a car, a house, paying off student debt and perhaps getting some investments going, not to mention planning a family.

For most, there is no cost associated with becoming pregnant. However for those with fertility issues, use of fertility drugs such as Bravelle often means the difference between successful conception, and being left childless. It would therefore come as no shock that those having paid handsomely for Bravelle fertility treatment have been left reeling from the Bravelle Recall.
