Q1. What is IVF Is it same as test tube pregnancy?

IVF is an acronym for in vitro fertilization (‘in vitro’ meaning ‘in glass’) Hence it is also called as test tube pregnancy. It is a non surgical process by which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the womb.The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova (eggs) from the woman’s ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg (Embryo) is then transferred to the patient’s uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy.
