IVF -treatment

IVF can be used in connection with all forms of infertility and is today the most effective form of assisted fertilization. 
The couple's own eggs and sperm can be used; alternatively couples or singles can be treated using donated sperm and/or eggs.

How IVF -treatment works

In IVF -treatment, the woman is first given hormones that stimulate several eggs in the ovaries to become mature. The eggs are retrieved from the woman's ovaries by inserting a thin needle into the ovary via the vagina, under the guidance of ultrasound. The male's sperm samples, or donated sperm samples, are then prepared to isolate the best sperm.

The retrieved eggs and motile sperm are brought together in a culture dish so that fertilization can take place. If the quality of the sperm sample is abnormal, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) is performed to facilitate the sperm to fertilize the eggs. ICSI is a technique where a single sperm is injected directly into an egg outside of the uterus.  An embryo is returned to the uterus after 2 -6 days in culture. If more than one embryo is formed, the others are cryopreserved, and can then be used for future treatments.
