In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

(Back to Treatment page)

In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
The most advanced reproductive treatment. IVF consists of complex steps in which the woman is given fertility drugs that stimulate her ovaries to produce a number of mature eggs; at the proper time, the eggs are retrieved by suction through a needle that has been inserted into her ovaries; the eggs are fertilized in a Petri dish in the laboratory with her partner's or donor sperm; and subsequently the embryos are transferred into the uterus.

Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD)
Couples that carry a wide variety of genetic conditions can have their embryo screened for that condition. This involves performing IVF, growing the embryos for three days, taking one cell and analyzing that cell. Then, only non-affected embryos can be transferred back to the uterus. This technique is also used in couples with repeated miscarriages.
