    Do I need to take fertility hormone injection?
    I am feeling very nervous after having decided to go for in vitro fertilization. Is there a need to take the fertility hormone injections while one is undergoing IVF?

    Without taking hormonal injections it is not possible to retrieve more than 1-2 oocytes to fertilize with the sperms. Hence resulting embryos are also less to transfer thus reducing the success rates drastically.
