There are hundreds of thousands of test tube babies living in the world right now, and is a very known method of having babies.

A lot of people around the world who are parts of infertile couples, have taken this treatment and have been successful. In the world right now, there are more than 190,000 babies that were born using IVF, and according to all the information above, the IVF is a successful invention. It does not have any side effects, neither does it have any physical or mental risks. Overall, I think the IVF treatment is a treatment that is worth it, and should definitely be an option for infertile parents. I would suggest using birth control pills as well with it, but the IVF treatment is indeed a treatment of efficiency.
