In vitro fertilisation (IVF)
IVF is a type of fertility treatment where fertilisation takes place outside of the body. It’s suitable for people with a wide range of fertility issues and is one of the most commonly used and successful treatments available for many people. This page will introduce you to how IVF works, the risks and current success rates.
