Infertility, as defined by the World Health Organization, is the inability to become pregnant despite of regular sexual intercourse for more than a year without pregnancy prevention. The causes of infertility can result from both – the female and male side. The aim of this study was to understand the attitudes of women aged 20–25years towards in vitro fertilization in vitro. How they perceive the in vitro method and where they get the information about in vitro fertilization. Does the IVF (in vitro fertilization), awakening so much controversy, is consistent with the views of the respondents? The study involved 50 women from the district Dabrowski (voivodeship małopolska, Poland), aged between 20 and 25 years old. The method used in research was a diagnostic survey involving a questionnaire created by the author of the thesis. Respondents were informed about the aim of the survey and its anonymity. Conducted survey obtained information about the level of knowledge and attitudes of women towards in vitro fertilization. The study found that the respondents are aware that the cause of infertility can lie on both, the women and men side. Respondents despite of declaring a Roman Catholic religion, accept the in vitro method as a chance to have their own children, that can’t be conceived in a natural way. Surveyed women showed a signifi cant defi cit of knowledge about extracorporeal in vitro fertilization. This knowledge should be given by the public health nurses.
