In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a method of assisted reproduction that involves combining an egg with sperm in a laboratory dish. If the egg fertilizes and begins cell division, the resulting embryo is transferred into the woman’s uterus where it will hopefully implant in the uterine lining and further develop. IVF bypasses the fallopian tubes and is usually the treatment choice for women who have badly damaged or absent tubes.
One Million IVF Babies

Risks of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
Serious complications from the medications and procedures required for in vitro fertilization (IVF) are rare. However, as with all medical treatments, there are some risks. The most common being development of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome and risks associated with multiple pregnancy.
