Untitled

Starting a family can be stressful. Anyone whose ever experienced problems getting pregnant knows that conception isn’t always easy. Women who find themselves unable to have a child may experience feelings of inadequacy and despair. Fortunately we live at a time when scientific methods have been developed geared to lending Mother Nature a helping hand and providing an alternative to traditional conception methods.

History

IVF (in vitro fertilization) is one of several assisted reproduction technologies currently available to potential parents. Although this procedure’s origins date back many years the first so called “test tube baby” was born in 1978. What was once a revolutionary medical procedure has today become almost commonplace. In our modern world women all over the globe have successfully used IVF in order to become mothers and experience the miracle of childbirth. According to a 2013 report in The Guardian since it’s initial success in the late 70s IVF has been responsible for bringing about five million babies into the world.

Reasons why many couples experience trouble conceiving a child may be traced back to preexisting medical issues with either of the potential parents. Females suffering from conditions such as blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, or ovarian failure may have difficulty getting pregnant. Problems with the male partner may include infertility due to a low sperm count, inadequate sperm production, or blockages preventing the release of semen.

Procedure

Basically in vitro fertilization involves artificially bringing together the building blocks of nature. Trained medical professionals skillfully combine egg and sperm cells in order to create an embryo which is then implanted into the mother’s uterus. According to americanpregnancy.org the success rate for IVF varies depending on factors such as maternal health, age, and medical history. A woman’s fertility is at its highest in her early twenties and then declines sharply after thirty five years of age. In the U.S. approximately 41-43% of women under thirty five successfully gave birth after IVF treatments. Statistics then drop to 13-18% for females over the age of forty.
