Busting Top 3 IVF Myths

Egg Freezing

In Vitro Fertilization or IVF is one of the most popular and successful fertility treatments. Despite the fact that IVF has been around for years, many myths surround IVF. Fertility doctors at Los Angeles and Irvine’s Pacific Reproductive Center explain the truth about many myths that prevent people from seeking IVF.

IVF BABIES DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BABIES

Children born as a result of IVF are as normal and healthy as any other babies. IVF procedure only helps to facilitate the fertilization of an egg and sperm in a lab to produce an embryo which is then transferred to the woman’s uterus. Rest of the process remains same as in any other pregnancy, so children born as a result of In Vitro Fertilization as absolutely normal, says fertility doctor at Pacific Reproductive Center at Los Angeles and Irvine.

IVF IS NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE

Several insurance plans and options exist that cover In Vitro Fertilization treatment including a refund option plan (that refunds up to 90 percent of the cost). One very popular plan is the Cash Courtesy Plan. To understand the financial options while going for fertility treatment at Los Angeles, call your fertility doctor at Pacific Reproductive Center today.

IVF MEANS MULTIPLE BIRTHS

In the beginning, it was common for women to have multiple births since multiple embryos were transferred to the uterus. With technological advancement, such as single embryo transfer and genetic screening to eliminate unhealthy embryos, the incidence of multiple pregnancies has gone down with IVF. Fertility doctor at Los Angeles offers elective single embryo transfer (eSET) to women undergoing IVF.
