Just like other parts of the world, there are several IVF centres in Nigeria that have made it a lot easier for women to conceive.
Conception today has become a lot easier, especially for women unable to conceive. These days, natural conception is no longer the only means of conceiving a child; science has made it a lot easier. Using IVF, women can now conceive children without penetration and waiting for nature to do its part.
IVF stands for In Vitro Fertilization, a prevalent method of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). IVF works by combining medicines and surgical procedures to help sperm fertilize an egg, and help the fertilized egg implant into the uterus.
In recent years, this method of conception has become a thing in Nigeria, with hundreds of IVF Centres located in different locations across Nigeria.
In this article, we will be examining the top IVF Centres in Nigeria. We will be classifying them by location, specialization, success rate and possible partnerships with local and international bodies.
