With complex medical procedures such as infertility treatment, there are several factors that influence the probability of a successful outcome. Knowledge of these success rates will help a couple or the individual involved understand the procedures in a holistic manner and prepare for it both physically and emotionally with expectations managed.
The IVF procedure involves removing eggs from a woman’s ovaries and fertilizing them outside her body. The fertilization is done either by placing sperm on them or by injecting a single sperm into each egg using the technique of 'intracytoplasmic sperm injection' (ICSI). The fertilized egg is then replaced inside the womb.
