IVF (in vitro fertilization) is a widely known kind of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) that extends its benefits to childless couples. IVF works by using a combination of clinical procedures/surgical procedures and medicines to help sperm fertilize an egg that comes out to be an embryo, and help the fertilized egg implant in uterus or endometrium lining. IVF is the most effective and widely used form of assisted reproductive technology and hope for the couple who are hoping to complete their families. The procedure can be done using women’s own eggs and partner’s sperm. Or IVF may involve donor eggs, donor sperm or embryos from a known or anonymous donor. In some cases, a gestational carrier means surrogate mother— a woman who has an embryo implanted in her uterus — might be used.


Your chances of having a healthy baby by ART or IVF depend on many factors from social life to lifestyle change and growing women’s health issues.


Why IVF is Done?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a treatment for infertile couples or couples who are having genetic problems. If IVF is being performed to treat infertility issues then you and your partner might be able to go with less-invasive treatment options before attempting IVF treatment, including fertility drugs on the medical prescription of a doctor to increase the production of eggs or intrauterine insemination.


IVF may be an option if you or your partner has:

Impaired sperm production or function

Unexplained infertility

A genetic disorder

Fallopian tube damage or blockage

Ovulation disorders


Uterine fibroids
