Is IVF the same as surrogacy?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 02/19/2018

No. Actually, IVF is an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) that is used in surrogacy arrangements. While surrogacy is a form of third-party reproduction, IVF is a technique that involves creating embryos at the laboratory and transferring them to the uterus of a woman. In this case, this woman is a surrogate.
