It is important to understand that medicine is an inexact science. Although we desire, plan and carry out our treatment as carefully as we can, the results can often vary in their degree of success. It is only natural for a patient undergoing Pregnenolone Replacement Therapy to want to be reassured that everything will turn out alright. Most of the time it does, but most of the time isn’t all the time, so it is necessary to talk about what can go wrong.
It is your responsibility to be aware of the risks and benefits of using Pregnenolone Replacement for medical treatment and ours to make sure you understand fully and correctly. If you have questions that are not answered within this Consent Form please ask us so that you will have a complete and clear understanding of both the benefits and the risks of Pregnenolone Replacement Therapy.
