What is IVF?

IVF makes it possible for couples who cannot conceive naturally, same sex couples or singles to have a biological child. Your eggs or those of a female donor are extracted and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory until they become fetuses. The fetuses are carefully monitored and once that have reached a certain age, they can be inserted into the uterus, where they will continue to grow. IVF always happens under strict supervision of a team of medical professionals. After three treatments the likelihood of having a viable pregnancy is up to 71 percent, giving hope to many men and women around the world. IVF treatments are offered all around the world. In the United States, IVF treatments are very expensive and can cost up to as much as 12.000 US dollars and can even be higher in big cities such as New York, Washington, or Los Angeles.
