When I started doing IVF in England I realized that what we knew was that we knew how to get an egg and to fertilize it outside the body – this was the IVF. We never knew what was the problem, what was the specific problem to each couple so, that’s why some couples were very successful with IVF and some others not because we applied a method not to the people that they needed. Some of them they just don’t need it, some of them they just need to balance their immune system and especially to minimize the reaction when they will get pregnant.
