In-vitro fertilization also-called IVF includes the fertilization of a human egg cell in a lab and implantation of the embryo or the fertilized egg in the uterus or the womb of the woman for pregnancy and birth. Every now and then, an embryo which is a result of an in vitro fertilization will be frozen to be used for later IVF implantation.
In-vitro fertilization is a treatment procedure for women who have the difficulty to get pregnant.The procedure is a great aid for conception and for a normal term of pregnancy.This procedure is also used for preventing the transmission of hereditary illnesses. Fertilization will happen not in the test tube, but in small container which is called a perti dish.
Test tube baby is the more common name for the baby that resulted from an in-vitro fertilization.There are a number of procedures that can be followed to come up with a test tube baby.First, the eggs have to be collected from the woman.But before they are to be collected, the woman has to take special medicines to stimulate her ovulation.When the eggs are now ripe, the surgeon performs an operation to extract them.
The next phase in IVF implantation includes that of fertilizing the egg and its development in the laboratory.After the egg’s removal, it is brought to the lab where it’s placed in the laboratory, where it is soaked in the special fluid for around 6 hours.The male partner or a sperm donor then supplies the sperm specimen.This should take place at least 4 hours after the eggs have been collected. The sperm must be especially treated by washing and incubation.They are then mixed with the eggs and left for around 18 hours.In following the procedure, the eggs are then observed if fertilization has taken place.They are all given back to culture for the next 24 hours.
Following the fertilization procedure, the grown fertilized egg will be transferred to the woman’s uterus.To minimize the risk of many pregnancies, only a few eggs are given to the woman.
