In vitro fertilization (IVF) is done when the woman's fallopian tubes are blocked. It involves prescription drugs such as Pergonal, Lupron and the hormones HCG and progesterone. The procedure takes about 2 months to complete. Eggs are retrieved and sperm extracted and fertilized outside the mother's body and then the fertilized egg(s) is placed into the uterus in hope of implantation.
