For some people, IVF might be one of the last resorts if they want to conceive a baby. And this method has proved to be one of the best and most effective ones in the fight with infertility.

IVF stands for in vitro fertilization, which is a procedure where mature eggs are collected from a woman’s ovaries and are fertilized by sperm in a lab. Then, they are implanted into a uterus. That’s how it works. As a result, such reproductive technology helps people have their own babies.
