Does In Vitro Fertilization work?

Yes. IVF was introduced in the U.S. in 1981. Since 1985, when we began counting, through the end of 2006, almost 500,000 babies have been born as a result of reported Assisted Reproductive Technology procedures (IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, and combination procedures). IVF currently accounts for more than 99% of ART procedures.  The average live delivery rate for IVF in 2005 was 31.6 percent per retrieval.
