*The new specification requires students to know the following;

Students should be able to explain the use of hormones in modern reproductive technologies to treat infertility. This includes giving FSH and LH in a ‘fertility drug’ to a woman. She may then become pregnant in the normal way.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment:
• IVF involves giving a mother FSH and LH to stimulate the maturation of several eggs.
• The eggs are collected from the mother and fertilised by sperm from the father in the laboratory.
• The fertilised eggs develop into embryos.
• At the stage when they are tiny balls of cells, one or two embryos are inserted into the mother’s uterus (womb).

Although fertility treatment gives a woman the chance to have a baby of her own:
• it is very emotionally and physically stressful
• the success rates are not high
• it can lead to multiple births which are a risk to both the babies and the mother.
