									   Couples that are having a hard time getting
    pregnant or are infertile have the lack of ability to
    conceive despite months or years of trying. Each
    year, there are approximately six million individuals
    affected with infertility. Almost 10 percent of these
    women and men are at the age of reproduction.
    With this in mind and due to advanced medical
    innovation, there are now several medical
    procedures that permit couples to bear a child.
    One of these methods is called IVF or in vitro
    fertilization. The other method is termed
    intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
 In1981, in vitro fertilization or IVF was first
 utilized in the United States. Through this
 method, there have been about 250,000
 infants that have been born. Despite the
 fact that this type of medical procedure has
 been criticized by many people, infertile
 couples are enjoying its benefits because it
 made them pregnant and conceived a
 baby of their own by using their sperm and
 eggs.
 IVF or in vitro fertilization is a process
 wherein the woman’s eggs are joined with the
 man’s sperm. It is also considered as an
 assisted reproduction procedure. As soon as
 the woman’s eggs are transformed to
 embryos, they are transferred back into the
 woman’s womb. Normally, two to four
 embryos are transferred back into the womb
 of a woman to lessen the risk of multiple
 births. The process is called a cycle every
 time it is done.
 To determine the reason of your infertility, you
 will need to seek the advice of a fertility
 specialist. Your fertility specialist will find out
 the best fertility treatment for you. If your
 specialist chose IVF or in vitro fertilization,
 she or he will advise you, as the woman, to
 take fertility drugs for a few weeks. These
 drugs can be in the form of shots or pills.
 These particular drugs are going to assist you
 boost the number of eggs in your body and
 therefore making it more to gather in the
 future.
 Female  eggs are gathered via surgical
 method that is slightly invasive. The
 surgeon will use an ultrasound as his
 guide for him to retrieve the eggs. After
 retrieving the eggs, they are placed in a
 petri dish for about 40 hours without the
 sperm of your partner. The eggs then will
 be examined and transferred back into
 your uterus.
   The IVF or in vitro fertilization success rates are
    almost the same with normal pregnancies.
    Remember that it is hard to get pregnant if you
    reach the age of 30 and above. The in vitro
    fertilization success rate for women below 35 years
    old is 37 percent while women above 35 years old
    is 28 percent. The success rate for women whose
    age is over 40 is 13 percent. Pregnancy will be
    impossible or not common at all to women older
    than that. It simply means that the younger you
    are, the higher the success rate is.
 IVF or in vitro fertilization has aided
 hundreds and thousands of couples get
 pregnant and have a baby. On the other
 hand, this fertility treatment is also
 considered expensive. Before trying this
 procedure, you should ask your fertility
 specialist about the cost and find out if this
 is the right treatment for you.
