In Vitro Fertilization Treatment
IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a technique employed for the treatment of infertility, used as a method of assisted reproductive technology. Through IVF and egg donation, not only women who are infertile, those women who are past their reproductive age can also become pregnant
As early as the 1950s, obstetricians, and gynecologists were responsible for regulating and improving fertility in women, especially with the introduction of hormonal contraceptive pills.
In 1978, the successful birth of the first “test tube baby” was conceived through IVF in Oldham General Hospital, Greater Manchester, UK. The second successful birth through IVF occurred just 67 days after the first in India.
Today with increasing number of women in need of IVF worldwide, treatment is available in countries like India at approximately 40 to 80 percent of the cost, compared to the cost in the U.S.
