On Behalf of | May 20, 2024 | Reproductive Law

If you’ve been trying to conceive for a while and haven’t had success, in vitro fertilization (IVF) might be a path you’re considering. With so much information available online and among colleagues, it’s natural to wonder if IVF is the right choice for your situation.

By exploring the common reasons for IVF, you can make informed decisions in your fertility journey.

When is IVF worth a try?

IVF is a unique conception technique that involves fertilizing eggs outside the body. The fertilized embryo is then injected into the uterus for pregnancy. IVF has been and continues to be a valuable solution for couples facing specific fertility challenges. One scenario where you can explore IVF is when your fallopian tubes are damaged. IVF can allow you to achieve fertilization outside your fallopian tubes. IVF can also be ideal in instances where your partner’s sperms are few, abnormal or slow. IVF can improve the odds of fertilization through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Suppose you haven’t been able to ovulate predictably throughout your life. In that case, you can explore IVF to encourage egg production. Furthermore, suppose you have a genetic condition you don’t want to pass on to your offspring; IVF can help in picking healthy embryos for pregnancy. IVF has also been a miracle worker for same-sex couples who want to explore parenting. Through surrogacy, they can hope to have new additions to their families.

Ultimately, the key to making the right decisions during your fertility journey is having access to accurate information. If your circumstances fall under any of the categories mentioned above, you might want to explore IVF to expand your family. Since IVF can be such a confusing terrain, you can benefit from seeking personalized legal feedback before embarking on this miracle-working adventure.
