Hi Aiden,

IVF or In vitro fertilisation is an advanced form of assisted reproductive technology (ART). It is a series of complex procedures to help infertile couples or couple preventing a genetic issue with the conception of child. It is a fertilization technique whereby the egg is fertilised with sperm OUTSIDE the body and is then implanted in the woman’s uterus.

As the fertilization process is done outside the body it allows the couples to choose whether they want to conceive with own eggs & sperms or consider IVF donor cycle.
