Consent forms for IVF


Ladies, do you all sign "consent to the disclosure of identifying information" forms? I am not sure I want anyone to know my child was not conceived naturally. when he is old enough I will tell him and it's up to him to decide what to do with this information. Decided not to sign any consent for disclosure forms to protect my child from being identified as an IVF child in the future. we know nothing about IVF children and if in some 50-100 years it turns out that they are indeed different from naturally conceived children they may be discriminated against or something. I do not want that for my child! any opinions?

I've been filing in various consent forms from IVF clinic, apparently Dh needs to consent to put his name on the register as a father if he is not around and in this case they register the child as being result of the treatment! why? I am not sure I want such stigma for my child. what is your take on this?

I wouldn't want to sign that either. It's no one's business but yours.
