IVF-In Vitro Fertilization
What is IVF?
IVF treatment involves the fertilisation of an egg (or eggs) outside the body. The treatment can be performed using your own eggs and sperm, or using either donated sperm or donated eggs, or both.
Is IVF for me?
Your clinic may recommend IVF if:
you have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility
your fallopian tubes are blocked
other techniques such as fertility drugs or intrauterine insemination (IUI) have not been successful
the male partner has fertility problems but not severe enough to require intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
you are using your partner’s frozen sperm in your treatment and IUI is not suitable for you
you are using donated eggs or your own frozen eggs in your treatment
you are using embryo testing to avoid passing on a genetic condition to your child.
