IVF and Fertility

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting and happy phases of a women's life. A little bundle of joy in a woman’s hand is possibly one of the foremost thing a woman craves for.

However not every woman can have a biologically natural conception. The fertility journey can be both stressful and highly emotional. About 10% of the couples need assistance to conceive. In such cases; gynecologists may refer these patients to IVF specialists. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) commonly referred to as IVF.

IVF is the process of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm outside the mother’s womb and is further kept inside the womb after incubation.
