Written by - Dr. Sharanya.


In vitro fertilization, most commonly known as IVF is the process of fertilization where the egg is combined with the sperm in an external environment. The process involves continuous monitoring and stimulation of woman's ovulatory process, removing ovum from the woman's ovaries and letting the sperm fertilize it. The fertilized egg is stored and observed in the embryo culture for 2-6 days. The resulting embryos are assessed for quality and then transferred to the same or surrogate woman's uterus with the intention of initiating a successful pregnancy.
