In vitro fertilization or IVF is the process of manually combining sperm with an egg in a laboratory dish for fertilization. The embryo is then transferred to the uterus. IVF is often used to treat infertility due to a decreased sperm motility or sperm count, ovulation disorders or uterine fibroids, or with individuals who suffer a genetic disorder, which results in infertility.
From stimulation to retrieval, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is a four-step process, which may be the best option for you and your partner. A consultation allows you to review all your pregnancy options and decide what next steps to take.
