IVF Can Help with Infertility 

IVF technique has helped various infertile couples and it is a great source to help couples to conceive. IVF baby is also known as a test tube baby.

IVF (in vitro fertilization) technique is slightly different from the process of natural pregnancy. Before the procedure begins, fertility specialists administer a set of medicines to the prospective mother in order to stimulate egg development. The prospective father’s sperm is taken, which is then frozen and stored. The mother's eggs are surgically extracted and frozen. 

An egg and sperm outside of the body are combined in a sterile incubation environment. Once the eggs divide successfully, an embryo is created. Surgeons transplant the nascent foetus into the uterus of the prospective mother between 1 and 6 days after fertilization. A healthy egg, healthy sperm and a healthy uterus are requisites to create a baby through this process.

After an embryo implant, the woman is given hormones during the next two weeks to aid in the implantation of the egg(s). When the eggs get attached to the uterine wall then the pregnancy is confirmed.

The rest of the process is similar to normal pregnancy and IVF children are just like other children. The only difference is that the sperms and eggs are fertilized in a test tube, instead of the fallopian tube. Their mental and physical development is very similar to children born with normal pregnancies.

IVF technique was developed for women who couldn’t conceive due to blocked fallopian tubes. Further developments in the technique have helped many childless couples to conceive and have children. Many infertile couples think of IVF as a complicated procedure, but in reality, it is a simple and normal procedure.
