What is IVF?
“In vitro” is a Latin phrase that means “in the glass.” In vitro fertilization (IVF) provides a controlled environment that significantly enhances the opportunity for fertilization of the oocyte, or egg.
IVF combines the egg with sperm in a laboratory dish containing a culture solution that provides nutrients to support the fertilization and development of the egg. The fertilization process is monitored microscopically over a three-day period, during which successfully fertilized eggs develop into embryos.
Then, our team of embryologists carefully examines the quality of the embryos to determine which embryos will be selected for embryo transfer, cryopreservation, or further culturing and development.
