About the Pictures Image Gallery
In vitro fertilisation is a process by which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the womb, in vitro. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg is then transferred to the patient's uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy. The first successful birth of a test tube baby, Louise Brown, occurred in 1978. Prior to that, there was a transient biochemical pregnancy reported by Australian Foxton School researchers in 1973 and an ectopic pregnancy reported by Steptoe and Edwards in 1976.
