a.Risks of multiple gestationb.Whether or how to disclose the facts of conception to offspringc.Freezing embryos for later used.Financial ability to cover the cost of treatmentANS: DAlthough the method of payment is important, obtaining this information is not the responsibility of the nurse.Many states have mandated some form of insurance to assist couples with coverage for infertility. Risk ofmultiple gestation is a risk of treatment of which the couple needs to be aware. To minimize the chance ofmultiple gestation, generally only three or fewer embryos are transferred. The couple should be informed thatthere may be a need for multifetal reduction. Nurses can provide anticipatory guidance on this matter.Depending on the therapy chosen, there may be a need for donor oocytes, sperm, embryos, or a surrogatemother. Couples who have excess embryos frozen for later transfer must be fully informed before consentingto the procedure. A decision must be made regarding the disposal of embryos in the event of death or divorceor if the couple no longer wants the embryos at a future time.PTS: 1 DIF: Cognitive Level: Application REF: 111OBJ: Nursing Process: ImplementationMSC: Client Needs: Safe and Effective Care Environment11.A woman has chosen the calendar method of conception control. During the assessment process, it is mostimportant that the nurse:a.Obtain a history of menstrual cycle lengths for the past 6 to 12 months.b.Determine the clients weight gain and loss pattern for the previous year.c.Examine skin pigmentation and hair texture for hormonal changes.
d.Explore the clients previous experiences with conception control.ANS: AThe calendar method of conception control is based on the number of days in each cycle, counting from thefirst day of menses. The fertile period is determined after the lengths of menstrual cycles have been accuratelyrecorded for 6 months. Weight gain or loss may be partly related to hormonal fluctuations, but it has nobearing on use of the calendar method. Integumentary changes may be related to hormonal changes, but theyare not indicators for use of the calendar method. Exploring previous experiences with conception control maydemonstrate client understanding and compliancy, but it is not the most important aspect to assess fordiscussion of the calendar method.PTS: 1 DIF: Cognitive Level: Analysis REF: 121OBJ: Nursing Process: Assessment MSC: Client Needs: Health Promotion and Maintenance12.A woman is using the basal body temperature (BBT) method of contraception.
