HealthWatch: In Vitro Fertilization

Many couples who have trouble conceiving turn to in vitro fertilization (IVF).

For couples undergoing in vitro fertilization, the number of embryos to implant in the mother is a difficult and controversial decision.

Until now, the thinking has been that implanting several embryos improves the chances of having a baby, but new research shows that’s not the case, and more may not always be better.

CBS 2’s Dr. Holly Phillips has the details.

    You don’t IMPLANT embryos- you transfer them back to the uterus. You HOPE AND PRAY that they implant. I wish there was one freaking reporter that would get this right!

    People should never forget that real health depends how well you take care of yourself and not what health insurance you carry but I agree health insurance is important for every one. Search “Wise Health Insurance” online for dollar a day insurance plans.
