IVF is an assisted reproductive technology used to achieve pregnancy. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a process of assisted reproduction in which an egg is fertilised by sperm outside the mother’s body. The fertilised egg (embryo) is then transferred to the woman’s uterus with the hope of establishing a successful pregnancy.
IVF may be used to overcome female infertility caused by problems with the fallopian tubes, making in vitro fertilisation possible. It may also assist in male infertility, and in other cases of unexplained infertility or when all other approaches to fertility have failed, according to Fertility Solutions.
Your chances of becoming pregnant using IVF increase when the female partner does not have functional fallopian tubes. The fertilised egg is transferred directly into her uterus.
Embryo transfer is typically done five to seven days after fertilisation of the implanted embryo takes place.
If you have unexplained infertility or have tried all other forms of fertility, IVF is a great option for you.
