  1. This STEAM project is an illustrated booklet guide to In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). It describes the prevalence and controversy of IVF. It states that people can undergo IVF for multiple reasons, such as PCOS or other ovulation disorders, damage or blockage of the uterine tubes, sperm count and quality issues, genetic factors, and sociological factors. Then, it describes the process of IVF. First, oocytes are retrieved using controlled ovarian stimulation (COH), then, eggs are removed from the follicles, the eggs are then fertilized in vitro, and they are set aside to become embryos. After the eggs have become embryos, they are transferred to the uterus. Eight to twelve days after this procedure, patients take a blood test to measure hCG, which will indicate pregnancy.
