What is In Vitro Fertilization?

Posted by on with 0 Comments

In vitro fertilization (IVF), is a form of assisted reproductive technology. In IVF, sperm are combined with an egg or eggs in a Petri dish in an attempt to achieve fertilization. The embryos which result from this process are then either transferred into the uterus in the hopes of beginning a pregnancy or, cryopreserved (frozen) for future use. 

Dr. Amy Criniti from Seattle Reproductive Medicine discusses the key elements of this procedure in this video, made possible by a grant from Attain Fertility® Centers, an IntegraMed Specialty and provider of the Attain® IVF Programs.
