In vitro fertilization (IVF) combines a man’s sperm and a woman’s egg outside the woman’s body in a lab. After this process, one or more fertilized eggs would be placed in the woman’s uterus, ideally resulting in implantation in the lining of the uterus and development into full-term infants. IVF is used for many causes of infertility, such as ovulation factors, tubal factors, male factors, age factors, uterine factors, endometriosis, or unexplained infertility.
Currently, we are excited to mention the very high success rates through IVF at our clinic. The combination of talent and laboratory technology is paying off! If you are considering IVF ask about how we use EmbryoScope® for a detailed observation of embryo development.
