Is IVF allowed in Islam?

In terms of islam's view on IVF, i would also appreciate answers to this question.
1 of the issue we contemplated before we proceeded with it was whether it was ethically/morally correct to let the consultants in a sense playing god BUT they way i see it , ONLY allah can give life should he please. The consultants are merely helping with the early stages of the process. The rest as they said to us at the time is upto the almighty lord whether it works or not.
therefore, should anyone have a different opinion or would like to share their views, i would be happy to hear them. if i am wrong or lacking knowledge in this subjects please enlighten me. no hard feelings.
The Noble Qur'an Al-'Imran 3:38
"Rabbi hab li min ladunka dhurriyyatan tayyibatan innaka samee' al-du'aa'
..."O my Lord! Grant me from You, a good offspring. You are indeed the All-Hearer of invocation."

I would like to say that i heard that as long as the wife's eggs and the husband's sperm is used,, IVF is permitted BUT the equally important factor is the person/doctor who performs the procedure (of placing the fertilised eggs back in the womb ) MUST BE FEMALE. Donor eggs or sperm is not permitted.
Allah forgive me if this information is incorrect, but i heard it on an islamic debate.
I would also like to add after trying for a child for 16 years we went thru with ivf and now mashallah we are the parents of a beautiful baby. Also i agree with brother that only Allah can give life if so he pleases.
