Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2012-11-05


Medical treatment for women who have difficulty becoming pregnant. Infertility medications are used for ovulation induction or controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, while assisted reproductive technologies (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) are more complex and invasive in that they involve techniques to manipulate and fertilize the egg outside the body. (Hrometz SL, Gates VA, 2009).
