Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET)

IVF Procedure

 

Stimulation of Ovulation

 

IVF (in-vitro fertilization) involves administration of a number of injections of effective fertility drugs to the female partner.

 

Egg Retrieval and Fertilization

 

The egg retrieval procedure involves removal of eggs from the ovaries under a mild sedation. In this procedure, intravaginal aspiration is performed that lasts only couple of minutes. A sample of semen is collected from the male partner, and the eggs are fertilized by the sperms in the IVF laboratory. The embryos derived from this procedure are assessed in three to six days and some of the embryos are selected for embryo transfer (ET).
