In Vitro Fertilization

During in vitro fertilization (IVF), eggs removed from the woman's ovaries are fertilized with sperm in a lab — hence the term "test tube baby." The resulting embryo is then implanted in the uterus. Owing to the fact that more than one embryo is implanted at a time, women who conceive using IVF are more likely to get pregnant with multiples.
