What is In Vitro
Fertilization (IVF)?

In an IVF cycle, the client will undergo egg retrieval which is a surgical procedure to retrieve the egg(s) from a woman's ovaries. After collecting the eggs, the embryologist will fertilize eggs with sperm in a laboratory.
To date, more than 5,000,000 "IVF babies" have been born around the world. Our Chief Executive Officer, Dr Chii-Ruey Tzeng, created the first “test tube baby” in Taiwan.
