What is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?

Georgia Regents Reproductive Medicine and Infertility Associates in Augusta, Georgia performs in vitro fertilization (or IVF) for couples that are experiencing infertility or other fertility disorders.

In vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) was first successfully completed over 20 years ago; since then, thousands of children have been conceived.

IVF is a procedure that enhances the chance of pregnancy in couples for which other fertility therapies have been unsuccessful or are not possible. It involves multiple steps resulting in the insemination and fertilization of eggs in a laboratory. The embryos created in this process are placed into the uterus for potential implantation.

Each stage of the IVF procedure is associated with specific risks, as are all treatments. It is an elective medical treatment, which may provide a couple that has been otherwise unable to conceive with a chance to establish a pregnancy.
