Hi Destany,

I would Like to share some information related to advantages and disadvantages of IVF treatment.

Some of the advantages of IVF are-

1.It helps in surrogacy.

2.IVF allows you to use Donor egg, Donor Sperms and Donor Embryo

3.Allows embryo freezing of extra good quality embryos from fresh IVF cycle which can be used in next IVF cycle.

4.Can observe the quality of embryo development on day-to-day basis for up to 5 days.

5.IVF is the only option for women with blocked fallopian tubes and tubal ligation.

1.Egg retrieval might cause bleeding, infection or damage to bowel/bladder

2.Risk of Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome
