IVF For Dummies: All You Need To Know About IVF by OmegaGolden: 5:52pm On May 21
IVF stands for in vitro fertilization. IVF works by using a combination of medical, surgical and laboratory procedures to help sperm fertilize an egg, and help the developing fertilized egg(s) implant in your uterus.

How does it work?
First, you take medication that makes several of your eggs mature and ready for fertilization. Then the doctor takes the eggs out of your body and mixes them with your partner’s sperm in an IVF lab, to help the sperm fertilize the eggs. Then they put 1 or more fertilized eggs (embryos) directly into your uterus. Pregnancy happens if any of the embryos implants in the lining of your uterus.

IVF has many steps, and it takes a couple of weeks to complete the whole process. It sometimes works on the first try, but many people need more than 1 attempt at IVF to get pregnant.

What’s the IVF process?
Normally, an egg and sperm are fertilized inside a woman’s body. If the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the womb and continues to grow, a baby is born about 9 months later. This process is called natural or unassisted conception.

IVF is a form of assisted reproductive technology (ART). This means special medical techniques are used to help a woman become pregnant. It is most often tried when other, less expensive fertility techniques have failed.
