What Is IVF and Who Can Benefit from IVF Treatment?
For pregnancy to occur, an egg must be fertilized by a sperm. When fertilization happens inside the body, it’s called in vivo fertilization. When fertilization happens outside of the body, it’s called in vitro fertilization, or IVF.
There are many reasons a patient may have difficulty getting pregnant. Some include damaged fallopian tubes, male factor infertility, endometriosis, or unexplained infertility, and Genetics & IVF Institute can help treat infertility. We also treat patients interested in preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) or PGT for sex selection.
IVF treatments are also helpful to patients in the LGBTQ+ community, older patients and patients with low ovarian reserve, patients who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and patients with premature ovarian failure.
How Does the IVF Process Work?
In an unassisted pregnancy, an egg must be released from the ovary and united with a sperm. Fertilization then takes place in the fallopian tube, which connects the uterus to an ovary. To understand IVF, it is helpful to understand the typical 28-day menstrual cycle shown below.
