Egg fertilization 
IVF or In – vitro fertilization is a process by which an egg is fertilized by sperm outside the body. In vitro is a Latin term which means fertilization “in glass” or a culture dish. IVF is considered when other methods of assisted reproductive technology have failed to achieve a successful pregnancy.

IVF procedure entails monitoring of a woman’s ovulatory process, removing ova from the woman’s ovaries and letting the sperm fertilize the ova in a fluid medium in a laboratory. When a woman’s natural cycle is monitored for collection of ovum, it is known as natural cycle IVF. The zygote formed inside the fluid medium is then transferred to the uterus so as to establish a successful pregnancy. Louise Brown was the first test tube baby, borne in 1978.

Summarizing, the various steps of IVF surgery include:

1.       Stimulation and monitoring  the development of eggs in the ovaries
2.       Egg Retreival
3.       Collection of sperms
4.       Fertilization or combining the sperm and ova in a culture medium for fertilization and early embryo growth.
5.       Transfer of embryos into uterus
