In vitro fertilization (IVF)
One of the best-known fertility treatments is in vitro fertilisation, also known as IVF, a technique whereby an egg is extracted from the uterus and then, fertilised in the laboratory (in vitro) with semen from the partner or donor.
The ovaries are stimulated to obtain several ovules, which are extracted using ovarian puncture and then, once fertilised in the laboratory, are implanted in the uterus to achieve pregnancy.The purpose of the process is to obtain high quality embryos to increase the likelihood of achieving pregnancy.
In vitro fertilisation can be used in cases of male and female fertility alike.
