IVF or in vitro fertilization is a reproductive procedure where a mature egg is collected from the ovaries of a woman and fertilized with sperm, outside of the body, in a laboratory. The fertilized egg or zygote then undergoes embryo culture for a few days and is implanted in the woman’s uterus to trigger successful pregnancy. IVF is completed using a woman’s own eggs and her partner's sperm. Alternatively, it can be carried out using egg and sperm from donors. IVF is suitable for women suffering from PCOS, endometriosis or irregular ovulation cycles. You may be a suitable candidate as IVF stimulates healthy ovulation in your body. However, consult your gynecologist to know the chances of having a healthy baby with IVF since several other factors are also involved. The doctor will help you understand the potential risks of IVF as well.
