Why Is In Vitro Fertilization Performed?

IVF helps people within fertility who want to have a baby. IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology. The procedure can be done using a couple's own eggs and sperm. Or IVF may involve eggs, sperm, or embryos from a known or anonymous donor. In some cases, a gestational carrier — someone who has an embryo implanted in the uterus — might be used.

Infertility issues for which IVF may be necessary include:

- Reduced fertility in women over the age of 40
- Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes
- Reduced ovarian function
- Endometriosis
- Uterine fibroids
- Male infertility, such as low sperm count or abnormalities in sperm shape
- Unexplained infertility

Parents may also choose IVF if they run the risk of passing a genetic disorder on to their offspring. A medical lab can test the embryos for genetic abnormalities. Then, a doctor only implants embryos without genetic defects.


In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a type of assistive productive technology (ART). It in volves retrieving eggs from a women’s ovaries and fertilizing them with sperm. This fertilized egg is known as an embryo. The embryo can then be frozen for storage or transfer red to a woman’s uterus.
Depending on your situation, IVF can use:
Your eggs and your partner’s sperm
Your eggs and donor sperm
Donor eggs and your partner’s sperm
Donor eggs and donor sperm Donated embryos.
Your doctor can also implant embryos in a surrogate, or gestational carrier who is a woman carries your baby for you.
