In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

Since the birth of Louise Brown in 1978, more than 5 million babies have been born worldwide by IVF/ICSI procedures. This process involves stimulation of follicle(s) development with the help of medication, retrieving the eggs under sonography guidance, culturing eggs and sperms together under strictly controlled conditions and transferring fertilized eggs in the uterus of the woman. Pregnancy test is done approximately two weeks later. This process greatly enhances the chances of fertilization. This is a useful treatment for blocked tubes, anovulatory infertility, endometriosis and unexplained infertility.
