Such a thing (exchange of sperm by mistake) has happened in reality. It has happened in several places. I feel it is a very important subject to tell people about, especially for women and families who cannot have children. Since IVF has been discovered, almost eight million babies have been born through IVF across the world. There is a success rate of 92 percent in this.”
