Who is IVF Pregnancy best for?

IVF is the best treatment to deal with a range of fertility problems:

  • Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes – with IVF eggs taken direct from the ovary, fertilised and implanted straight into the uterus (womb), avoiding the need for fallopian tubes
  • Low sperm count or poor sperm movement – by mixing eggs and sperm together in a laboratory, it’s much easier for sperm to fertilise an egg. Then it’s popped straight into the womb
  • Unexplained infertility – when doctors don’t know why couples can’t conceive, IVF is often the best solution

What’s involved in IVF?

IVF involves a number of processes that begins with drugs used to help produce as many healthy eggs as possible.

You’ll then be given a series of daily hormone injections for about 12 days. These will help to stimulate the ovaries and help them to release a greater number of mature eggs that the fertility drugs have helped develop.
