Fertilization In vitro (FIV) is one of Reproduction Human Assisted (RHA) techniques which along the use of donated ova, favors women who have certain physical inability to engender healthy ova for fertilization. This study aims to understand, from group analytics and psychoanalytic theories, specially the French author Anzieu, the psychic process and functioning of couples whose are seeking treatment for their infertility, through FIV using donated ova. Certainly, this study involved books, articles and scientific thesis concerning the issue presented here. It was concluded that the infertile couple, which was used FIV with donated ova, develops a hopeful movement, a kind of “messianic movement”, characterized by a group illusion about the doctor figure and the clinic. These would be a kind of messiah, who can save him, solving their dilemmas concerning the infertility.

Keywords : Couple; Fertilization in vitro; Group illusion; Psychoanalysis.
