Infertility is defined as trying to get pregnant for at least a year with no success. Infertility is not always a woman’s problem. Both men and women contribute to infertility.
Infertility may result from an issue with either you or your partner or a combination of factors that interfere with pregnancy. Fortunately, there are many safe and effective treatments that significantly improve your chances of getting pregnant.

In Vitro fertilisation, also known as IVF, is a fertility treatment where fertilisation takes place in the lab instead of the female body. The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing an egg or eggs from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilize them in a liquid in a laboratory. The fertilized egg is cultured for 2–6 days in a growth medium and is then implanted in the same or another woman’s uterus, with the intention of establishing a successful pregnancy.
The success rate of IVF treatments depends on a number of factors including reproductive history, maternal age, cause of infertility, and lifestyle factors.
