IVF (In Vitro Fertilisation) is a series of procedures that involves fertilisation of an egg using sperm, outside the body in a specialised laboratory. The process involves stimulating a woman’s ovulatory process, removing eggs from the woman’s ovaries and fertilising the egg with sperm in the laboratory. The fertilised egg (zygote) is cultured for 2–5 days and is then implanted in the same woman’s uterus, with the purpose of initiating a successful pregnancy. For IVF to be successful it requires healthy eggs, good-quality sperm, and a uterus that can sustain a pregnancy.
