The we make sure the sperm gets inside the eggs and that is done in the lab. And then we grew the embryo (early pregnancy) usually for 5 days and then easily place it back inside your body.
Lab techniques. Ivf works by adding sperm to eggs in the laboratory to produce embryos that are transferred into the uterus. Ivf bypasses the problems that can interfere with conception, problems with ovulation, fertilization, and implantation.
See below. There are three type ivfs, 1. Conventional ivf, 2. Minimal stimulation ivf, 3. Natural cycle ivf. In general, doctor will start mediation on cycle day 3 to stimulate ovaries to grow more follicles, after 8-10 days, doctor will perform ultrasound guided egg collection. The egg will be fertilized in the lab with your partner's sperm. The embryo will then be transfer back to the women'uterus.
