How would you explain IVF to a layman and what all is involved in it?
IVF or In vitro fertilization is a simple technique for childless couple to help them have a baby. In vitro means outside the body.Therefore , in IVF the semen is taken from the husband & the eggs, are taken out from the ovaries of the wife & both are fertilized outside the human body under controlled/simulated conditions. The fertilized egg, called the embryo is the transferred into the wife again. From here onwards, if the wife conceives, she carries on the pregnancy like a normal lady.
