IVF

In Vitro Fertilization is an Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) where a woman’s eggs and man’s sperm are combined in an advanced high-tech laboratory to create an embryo. In fact, the actual meaning of the word “In Vitro” is “Outside the body of living organism” therefore the entire fertilization process in an IVF procedure takes place outside the human body. When the egg combines with a sperm it starts to fertilize and develops into an embryo. Usually, on Day 5 of fertilization, the embryologists identify the best embryo which is then transferred into the female uterus. Of course, optimum laboratory environment and high-tech equipment are required to ensure healthy embryos develop and the desired pregnancy can be achieved.
