In-vitro fertilization (IVF) can be a beneficial and effective treatment for some groups of patients who have infertility.
The eggs are then retrieved from the ovaries and her partner’s sperm are then allowed to fertilize the eggs outside the body.
Once the eggs begin growing they are inserted into the woman’s uterus in the hope implantation and pregnancy will occur.
The main benefit of IVF is that it allows couples to overcome the common causes of infertility listed below.
Some couples do not have a diagnosed reason for their infertility. This is called unexplained infertility. In-vitro fertilization allows egg and sperm to join together outside of the woman’s body and start growing in a controlled, monitored environment free from any harmful influences.
Severe Tubal Disease
Some women have extensively damaged fallopian tubes from pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or from severe intra-abdominal infections. In-vitro is designed to bypass the tubes by allowing conception to occur outside the body. The fertilized eggs are then introduced into the uterus in the hope of pregnancy.
