It seems simple to create a baby, after all everyone does it. Even simpler is the definition of fertility. For a successful conception, you need only three things: egg, sperm, and uterus. However, all of these components have to work together to produce a healthy baby, but what happens if one of these parts is not working properly, or is missing altogether?

In this book, we will be discussing normal fertility, infertility, and treatment developed in the last 30 years to help with a problem that is almost an epidemic in some countries. These treatments, called assisted reproduction for infertility, have led scientists to find ways to place the sperm and egg as close together as possible so that they fuse and begin development of an embryo.
