In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Couples wanting children are often faced with infertility problems and these problems are on the rise. IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a major treatment to overcome infertility. With this procedure, couples can overcome both female and male infertility issues. The first IVF baby (or test tube baby) was born in 1984 and since then millions of couples have successfully used this procedure.

Eggs from the woman's ovary are removed and allowed to be fertilized by sperm cells in a Petri-dish in a laboratory. When the ovaries are not stimulated to produce a large number of mature eggs, it is known as natural IVF cycle. The fertilized egg cell is then placed in the patient's uterus where it may result in a successful pregnancy.
