IVF- In-Vitro Fertilization
IVF (In vitro fertilization) is the most common of high-tech fertility treatments. It entails retrieving eggs from ovaries and fertilizing them with collected sperm in a laboratory. The embryologist monitors and nurtures the fertilized egg (embryo) until it is ready for the physician to transfer into the uterus.
The process usually takes 4-6 weeks per cycle and involves a number of steps.
