A Journey to a New Hope – In Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a process of fertilization where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body, in contrast to natural in vivo fertilization where conception occurs in the female’s reproductive tract. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilize them in a liquid in a laboratory. After the fertilized egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, it is implanted in the same or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy. IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology used for infertility treatment and gestational surrogacy. A fertilized egg may be implanted into either a surrogate’s uterus, or a woman’s uterus. IVF can be used to overcome female infertility when it is due to problems with the fallopian tubes, making natural conception impossible. It can also assist in male infertility, in those cases where there is a defect in sperm quality, quantity or motility. In addition, IVF may be used in cases of donor sperm or eggs, surrogacy, or when there are other fertility issues present.
