IVF is a proven treatment for infertility

In vitro fertilization, or IVF, has helped millions of people all over the world overcome infertility and have the babies they hoped for. This proven technology has been in use since 1978, when the first IVF baby was born in the UK. Since then, IVF has advanced dramatically and has achieved incredibly high success rates, giving hope to countless men and women facing infertility.

At Advanced Reproductive Center, we offer state-of-the-art IVF in Illinois for those who need help to grow their families. While not everyone struggling to conceive needs IVF, this assisted reproductive technology is highly effective for many people facing common infertility problems. Find out if in vitro fertilization is right for you.

How does IVF work?

IVF is a multi-week process that uses medications to prompt the ovaries to produce multiple eggs at once. These eggs are then retrieved and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory. The resulting embryos are transferred to the uterus to achieve pregnancy.

Who needs IVF?

While many people can achieve pregnancy through other fertility treatments, IVF is the treatment of choice for certain causes of infertility. It is also the only way for a same-sex male couple to have a biological child, with help from an egg donor and gestational surrogate.

How do I know if I need IVF?

If you have been struggling to conceive, the first step is to get answers through fertility testing. There are a variety of reasons that a couple might not be able to get pregnant or stay pregnant, so we test both partners to pinpoint the cause.

What are the odds IVF will work?

IVF success rates will vary based on causes of infertility, which can be complex. The hopeful parents’ age can play a role, along with many other factors. This is why it’s important to find an IVF clinic with high overall success rates, like ours.
