In vitro fertilization is an option for many people who cannot conceive naturally or who have failed to conceive after attempting ovulation induction or other therapy. IVF in its simplest terms is the process of stimulating the ovaries into producing multiple mature eggs, retrieving them from the ovaries, combining the eggs with sperm in the laboratory and once fertilization occurs, transferring the early embryos back into the woman’s uterus. Recently the [wikipop]American Society of Reproductive Medicine[/wikipop] has recommended IVF as the first line of therapy for several types of infertility patients.
