In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a well established fertility treatment that has been used since the 1960s. In the last few decades, the number of IVF cycles has also increased, with some countries offering more IVF cycles than others. This article will explore the differences in IVF services offered in other countries, and discuss why IVF Prague is quite popular for this procedure and why the Czech Republic offers superior services than the rest of the world.

What is IVF?

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a technique that enables a couple to use their own eggs and sperm to get pregnant. In an IVF cycle, a woman usually undergoes hormone treatments to empty her ovaries and stimulate egg growth.

Eggs are then retrieved from the woman and fertilized in the lab with the partner’s sperm. The fertilized eggs are then put back into the woman’s uterus using a procedure known as intrauterine insemination (IUI). Egg donation is possible too, which is the process by which a woman donates eggs to enable another woman to conceive as part of an assisted reproduction treatment or for biomedical research.
