In Vitro Fertilization

In vitro fertilisation includes a wide range of techniques that aim to help infertile couples to have children. From Louise Brown birth in 1978 to date, thousands of children are born and IVF birth rate over total births is up to 4% in some countries.

This method is indicated when previous treatments fail or in cases that simpler methods cannot help. Development of techniques applied in laboratories and also in treatment schemes result to a constant increase of success rates.

After 35 years of use, in vitro fertilisation has proven to be an efficient and safe method both for women and children.
