In Vitro Fertilization
What is it?
In vitro fertilization is the treatment in which the fertilization of the ovum does not occur within the maternal uterus, it is carried out in the laboratory through different techniques.
In vitro fertilization can be carried out when there are different problems such as in the fallopian tubes where the passage of sperm to the ovum is prevented when there are few eggs available if ovulation occurs in very long periods, also some conditions that affect the ovarian or tubal function; or in cases in which there is little presence of sperm in the semen and its quality is not that required to achieve fertilization naturally.
Phases of treatment
The recipient woman must receive hormonal stimulation to prepare the endometrium, 3 to 6 days after fertilization the embryo is introduced into the uterus to seek implantation in a simple, fast and painless process. In vitro fertilization is one of the treatments with the highest implantation rates, which is why it is recommended for couples who have serious infertility problems.
