Caddle wanted to understand how Canadians feel about IVF and whether they plan to use this technology in their planned parenthood journey.
What is In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)?
IVF is an assisted reproductive technology (ART) that works by using a combination of medicines and surgical procedures to help sperm fertilize an egg, and help the fertilized egg implant in your uterus.
IVF provides a whole host of solutions to those looking to have a baby. For women, IVF assists those who may encounter fertility issues or have a partner with fertility issues. IVF provides the option to have a baby without a partner, and allows individuals to conceive later in life. In addition, IVF offers the abilty for same sex partners to conceive a child, and so much more.
We started by asking our respondents if their plans to have children in the next 5 years have changed since the start of the pandemic. While, fortunately, about 22% agreed their plans did not change, over 63% do not have plans at all.
