IVF involves combining eggs and sperm outside the body, then implanting the embryo into the uterus.

The same diligence applies here.  Don't settle for a clinic without a proven track record in IVF success, Look for clinics with high success rates, experienced doctors, and comprehensive services.

Think of how you plan your day around peak traffic times to avoid delays, understanding your fertility window helps schedule procedures for optimal success.
