IVF - What Makes It So Popular?

In vitro fertilization or IVF technology assists millions of infertile women and couples worldwide to have babies of their own. fertility problems can be of various types and origins can be congenital, acquired or accidental. However, they come as a great deterrent and source of unhappiness in the lives of people. To overcome that deficit, assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs) were developed.

IVF is one of the most popular, with one of the highest success rates, and here are 4 of its primary benefits:

It Provides Couples Relief from Infertility

There are a lot of couples who are unable to conceive and start a family of their own due to problems in either the man or the woman’s body. As a result of disease or injury, fallopian tubes may be blocked, sperm count may be low or uteruses may be damaged. IVF helps couples bypass these difficulties smoothly.

It Provides Great Support to Single Mothers

There is a lot of social stigmas associated with single motherhood, and the question of conceiving just adds to their troubles. There are many reasons a woman may choose to embark on single motherhood. She may have been constrained financially or emotionally, too much for taking on a partner, or she may just choose to live a life that way. Society doesn’t empathise, but IVF makes their job of conception much easier and absolves them of the need to find a male.

High Chances of Achieving Objectives

Translated to simpler language, this means high success rates. In fact, the success rates of IVF procedures are the highest among all ARTs. Granted, it does not work in all cases and some people routinely report failure. To fix this, the therapist and the patients themselves have to ensure the entire cycle is completed and is carried out under textbook conditions.

The Ability to Pick and Choose, and a Cheaper Option

This is a medical procedure which actually gives one the option to pick and choose future children. Tests are run to determine whether life-threatening conditions like genetic anomalies are present in the embryo the couple has conceived. If any are detected, they are immediately arrested and a healthier embryo is set up for growth. Moreover, in many cases, your health insurance will pay for your IVF, making it incredibly cheap.

IVF is a much-needed boost to the medical industry in the form of helping infertile couples to give birth to healthy babies. It takes place in a laboratory under controlled conditions and has a host of benefits even above and beyond helping people conceive.
