IVF at Southwest Fertility Center in Phoenix

In Vitro Fertlization

In vitro Fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproductive technology that includes the removal of mature eggs from the woman’s ovaries and the eggs are placed in a nutritive culture medium dish. The sperm is added to the culture media dish and fertilization takes place in the laboratory. Three to five days later the fertilized egg, now called an embryo, is transferred into the woman’s uterus and implantation takes place over the next few days.

Infertility Conditions For IVF

IVF is indicated for couples if the woman has blocked, absent or damaged fallopian tubes; severe endometriosis; when the couple needs to use donor eggs; in couples with a history of failed infertility treatments; unexplained infertility; or severe male factor infertility.

Success Rate of IVF

The success rate of IVF is dependent on many factors including the woman’s age; the receptivity of the uterine lining to an embryo; the severity of the male factor infertility. The success rate of IVF is 3-4 times higher than that of intrauterine inseminations. The success rate can be as high as 50% depending on the couple’s cause of infertility.
