In-vitro Fertilization
 

In Vitro Fertilization is commonly referred to as IVF. IVF is the process of fertilization by manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. When the IVF procedure is successful, the process is combined with a procedure known as embryo transfer, which is used to physically place the embryo in the uterus.

 

IVF basically involves the following steps:

 

  • Monitor and stimulate the development of healthy egg(s) in the ovaries
  • Collect the eggs
  • Secure the sperm
  • Combine the eggs and sperm together in the laboratory and provide the appropriate environment for fertilization and early embryo growth (insemination)
  • Transfer embryos into the uterus
