In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is a process of fertilisation where an egg is combined with sperm outside the body, in vitro ("in glass"). The process involves monitoring and stimulating a woman's ovulatory process, removing an ovum or ova (egg or eggs) from the woman's ovaries, and letting sperm fertilise them in a liquid in a laboratory. After the fertilised egg (zygote) undergoes embryo culture for 2–6 days, it is implanted in the same or another woman's uterus to establish a successful pregnancy. IVF is assisted reproductive technology used for infertility treatment and gestational surrogacy. A fertilised egg may be implanted into a surrogate's uterus, and the resulting child is genetically related to the surrogate, who usually does not have a genetic relationship. Some countries have banned or otherwise regulated the availability of IVF treatment, giving rise to fertility tourism. Restrictions on the availability of IVF include costs and age for a woman to carry a healthy pregnancy or without having a risk of an ectopic pregnancy.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility procedure in which sperm is inserted directly into the uterus. This is done using a thin, flexible catheter passed through the cervix into the uterus. IUI is often used in cases of male factor infertility when there are issues with the quality or quantity of sperm. It can also be used in cases of unexplained…
In-vitro fertilisation is the process of fertilising an egg outside the body in a laboratory. This is usually done when there is a problem with the woman's fallopian tubes or the man's low sperm count. The egg and sperm are placed together in a dish and left for fertilisation to occur. Once fertilises the egg, it is implanted into the woman's uterus.
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a fertility treatment that involves injecting a single sperm directly into an egg. ICSI is used when there is a problem with the sperm's ability to fertilise the egg. This can be due to a low sperm count, poor sperm motility, or abnormal sperm morphology. ICSI is typically performed in conjunction with in…

Success rates depend on many factors such as the reason for infertility itself. Age is also an important factor.

In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) and is a primary treatment for infertility when other treatment methods have failed. IVF involves retrieving eggs from the ovaries and fertilising them with sperm outside of the body, and the embryo is then transferred to the uterus.
Each IVF treatment cycle consists of four main steps: • Ovulation induction to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs • Egg retrieval • fertilisation • Embryo transfer.
IVF is recommended for patients who have: • Blocked or damaged fallopian tubes • Endometriosis • Male factor infertility, including problems with sperm count, motility, or morphology • Unexplained infertility
There are a few risks associated with IVF, but they are mostly mild and temporary. These risks include: • Bloating • Breast tenderness • Cramping •Headaches • Weight gain. In rare cases, more severe complications can occur, such as • Allergic reactions to medications • Blood clots • Multiple births • Premature delivery • Severe OHSS
The success rates of IVF vary depending on several factors, including the woman's age, the cause of infertility, and the number of embryos transferred. In general, the success rates of IVF are about 40 per cent for women under 35 and decrease to about 10 per cent for women over 40.
