What is IVF?

Artificial Insemination Los AngelesIVF or In Vitro Fertilization is one of the most popular and successful fertility treatments. Around 1 in 100 babies are born using ART each year in the United States alone.

IVF is a fertility treatment where eggs and sperm are combined in a laboratory setting. The embryo(s) that develop are then transferred to a recipient’s uterus.


IVF is a procedure designed to help a woman get pregnant. IVF can help in cases of poor egg quality, ovulation issues, endometriosis, or blocked fallopian tubes. IVF is also used when the male partner has low sperm count or sperm mobility issues. IVF is used when donor eggs are required for pregnancy, or when other treatment options have failed.


The entire IVF cycle takes around 4-7 weeks to complete. First, you wait for your eggs to mature, and then it takes several hours for the doctor to retrieve the eggs and have them fertilized with your spouse’s sperm. You will return in 3-5 days to have the embryos inserted into the uterus.


IVF success depends on age and the reason for the infertility. Higher success rates are seen in younger women. The national success rate in IVF for women younger than age 34 years is 41%, and a 31% success rate for women aged 35 to 37 years. These rates drop to 22% for women ages 38 to 40 years, and 12% for women 41 to 42 years.
