What is extracorporeal fertilization?
In vitro is the fertilization of the egg outside the woman’s body, that is, in laboratory conditions. The first stage comprises the stimulation of ovaries. Hormone drugs are dosed in order to obtain more than a single egg. The next stage involves adding sperm to the removed egg. The fertilized zygote undergoes several splits, a few-days- old embryo is transferred to the woman’s body. The pregnancy develops when the embryo is nested in the uterus. The final stage is the pregnancy confirmation with the BHCG examination and then with the ultrasound.
