In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

In-vitro fertilization (commonly shortened to just "IVF") is a procedure used to help with infertility issues. IVF uses technology to combine a sperm sample and a mature egg outside of the uterus. The now-fertilized egg is inserted into the uterus to assist with the pregnancy. IVF's success depends on several factors including age, the cause of the infertility issues, and embryo quality.
