The article presents a study conducted on evidence provided during observation of newborns. It has been discovered that with proper development of in vitro maturation (IVM) technique, an alternate for controlled ovarian simulation for infertile women will come up. the study states that this will in vitro fertilization when immature oocytes can be matured in vitro and then transplanted thereby reducing IVF failure while help in obtaining oocytes for donation or fecundity preservation.
