IVF Process Overview:
The Big Picture
What we call IVF can generally be broken down into these four major components
Complete required tests to ensure patient safety, suitability, and legal compliance for treatment
Use medication to gently stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs, monitor progress, then retrieve the mature eggs
Fertilize the retrieved eggs, then help the new embryos develop before testing their quality and freezing them for transfer
Readying the uterus to receive the embryo, then transferring the ideal embryo to achieve pregnancy
What if we’re missing sperm?
Cases where only sperm is needed tend to have the most flexibility
What if we’re missing eggs?
Egg Donors will need to pass stringent evaluation and tests to ensure
suitability and compliance
What if we’re missing a carrier: Gestational Carriers
Gestational carriers can help carry a pregnancy for those who need assistance
