For more info go to the fertility clinic in Sandton-Medferm they have specialist that do the IVF. I was also going to do it with them but fortunately by God's miracles fell pregnant before going thru the process. The costs are from R35000 to R45000 quite expensive but most people say it's worth it as the success rate is quite high.

Chance of a successful pregnancy is approximately 15% for each IVF cycle, although selected clinics are now able to claim rates up to 50% per cycle

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is a technique in which egg cells are fertilised by sperm outside the woman's womb. IVF is a major treatment in infertility when other methods of achieving conception have failed. The process involves hormonally controlling the ovulatory process, removing ova (eggs) from the woman's ovaries and letting sperm fertilise them in a fluid medium. The fertilised egg (zygote) is then transferred to the patient's uterus with the intent to establish a successful pregnancy.
