Many peoples are confused about IVF Pregnancy and Natural Pregnancy.

Even many educated people prejudice by their own that IVF Pregnancies are not completely ‘normal’ as they are a product of technical expertise of doctors and they assume that IVF babies are artificial.

So here we are going to light up and Clear up the myths related to IVF Pregnancy and Natural Pregnancy

First, let’s talk about exactly what IVF is “a complex series of procedures used to treat fertility or genetic problems and assist with the conception of a child.”

The only difference between Normal Pregnancy and IVF Pregnancy is that in the IVF process, eggs are extracted from a woman’s ovaries, then eggs and sperms are fertilized in the lab and then the fusion/ mixing takes place in the incubator instead of Fallopian tube and than insert them directly into the uterus under the supervision of IVF Specialist.

Whereas, In natural pregnancy, the egg gets fertilised by sperms deposited in the vagina, The fertilized egg then divides and forms an embryo in the fallopian tube which then travels back to the uterus to get implanted.

we must say that nowdays IVF centres emerging as the preferred destination for patients seeking fertility solutions.

IVF can successful bypass many of the common issues surrounding natural conception and an IVF Specialist can assess the overall health of the woman’s eggs as well as the fertilized embryos, all before transfer to the uterus.
