In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) involves procedures to help with fertility or aid in conception. During IVF, doctors retrieve mature eggs from the ovaries to be fertilized by sperm in a lab. After fertilization, doctors transfer the egg or eggs to the uterus. A complete IVF cycle takes about 21 days. Sometimes, the steps may be split into different parts, prolonging the process.
Endometriosis is a debilitating medical condition that affects approximately one in ten women of reproductive age worldwide. It is characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, in other parts of the body.
The American Pregnancy Association suggests IVF for women or couples who need help with their reproduction. The process is simple, but it will involve patience and hard work.
